Ahhh HEK, we have another blog hop......YOU may be our NEXT QUEEN. ( of something) OHHH AND AN OLISO IRON GIVEAWAY


Let's be HONEST, don't we all want to be a QUEEN OF SOMETHING
someday? ANYTHING? Well- why not HEXIES.....?

Many of us had never done

So I have never done a hexie project, I heard that other lady hasn't either...
Finally we will be on the same playing field...wink...

That other lady.... "I don't know about this one."
Me.... " Ahh come on, you do it, I will do it"
That other lady.... " How about I just say -YOU WIN"
Me.... " NOPE- I can't win if you are not in the hop"
That other lady... " Ok, how many will you be doing?"
Me, " ahhhh depends on how many you will do"

That is where we left off...

You just know we have been already working on something...
AND we CANNOT do it WITHOUT YOU too...

As I am no expert at all in this area, I called upon 

Debby is a Queen in the making...
at least that is what she tells me ...I think she 
is more than that...She has been working on Hexies
well let me just say a long time....
She has been a great cheerleader for many of you
through the months, we value all the talent this lady
has and shares with all those who love quilting...

She has something special for all those who 
will be our HEXIE hop...I will let her share that with you...

In the meantime....

Please let her know the following..

Name ( yours)
Blog name
URL

kratovil@his.com

Or go directly  to her blog and leave her a message there..

Guidelines are the same...

1. Commit if you are going to commit..( you never want to be on THAT LIST) 
2. Have your post ready midnight the day of your scheduled day
3. Make at least one new project, you can show old ones too...
4. Turn word verification off on your day ( you will get so many more encouraging comments)
5. Be a cheerleader for others, there is nothing more uplifting then hearing
from your peers....

NEED INSPIRATION?

Some great PINTEREST BOARDS
for INSPIRATION



Looking to cool off....?
I have no idea who made this...it was on the Pinterest 
link above...is it not a beauty..OK, I may really like 
this HEXIE hop very much...

If anyone can claim this....would love to highlight you..
I followed a couple links but it did not take me to the 
original quilter...





and she called this quilt TNT ( trying new things) 
and these hexies were cut from a die and she 
just glued and stitch around each one..
A unique look and something that would be easy 
now that we know...( to re-create)
Way to Go Melissa!
