Blogs

Reading blogs can get you into serious trouble. I have plenty to do and not enough time to do it. So why do I read blogs, because I have to. How else would I know what was going in the blogging world. Plus, I talk to the blogs. Yes, I know that sounds crazy. Can't you hear me? I agree with their fabric choices, lean into the monitor for a better look and in general wish I could hold the quilt in my hands.

So where is this going? Last week Betsy posted about One Flower Wednesday AND the post had links. Links require clicking. Well, I had to see the other flowers. Then I started thinking about all those hexes that turned into flowers. Then I started shopping for mylar hexagons. I couldn't help myself plus I needed to help the other bloggers. Since I haven't located any re-usable templates locally but I haven't gave up and there is still one more Joann's to check, I used freezer paper. I decided I would follow the tutorial that Lori Holt from Bee In My Bonnet posted. I just love that she used a paperclip. lol Lori has a part 2 tutorial that shows you how to sew the hexes into a flower.

I have squares cut for 5 flowers and I'm sewing 1 flower together. I think 6 flowers should hold me for a day or two. Plus the bag below holds any extra squares from where I might have cut too many squaress.

So where is the picture of my flower? You will have to come back for One Flower Wednesday.

Happy stitching!

I saw Lori's tutorial, too, and thought what a great idea it was to use a paperclip! Can't wait to see your flowers. (Blogs are VERY important for us to share and GET good ideas, aren't they??)

Cindy, I am in total agreement with you....I have to read each blog, follow the links, assist other blogger in their quest of things and leave comments......that's a big part of my life these days.....LOL

I am trying to resist this too. UGH!!! I may have to cave in like you are. Do I need another project? NO! But one flower a week is managable, right? LOL!!

If Blogs didn't exist, I would be rich. LOL

You sound like me! But I spend too much time in Blogland, ooohing and aaahing over other's blogs (like yours)! For example, I'm tempted to go investigate this whole hexagon/flower thing...
