Weekend - Part 1

Hello Lovelies ,
It's been a glorious weekend , with fun times and a little craft . To avoid making a long post I'll split it up into two installments .More to follow tomorrow.
Firstly a few hexagons......

How lovely to sit amongst your completed projects, in a sunny chair ,and work on your latest creation.
I've been making these Kaleidoscope Hexagons production line fashion , four at a time .
Here's round one.......


Three ....

and Four....

And here they are without their tails....

Thank you all for the sweet Kaleidoscope comments, I'm so glad you love it too :0) I've been taking advice from some more helpful comments and I've decided I will post a tutorial for this pattern . As long as I give credit to the original source , which is a free online pattern , I'm hoping it will be O.K.

But of course on a glorious sunny day it isn't long before the outdoors starts calling and I pop into the garden.

Next doors magnolia is at it's beautiful best and looks extra special against the brightest blue sky......

And it's wonderful to dry washing on the line....

The boys have bare feet ....

We lay on the soft grass , in the warm ,still evening air and imagine what it would be like looking down from a hot air balloon....

Yes we really have been spoiled with fabulous weather this weekend.
Pop back tomorrow for some more weekend craft ( non-crochet ! )

  3. Love the hexagons! I just bought a hexagon quilt top at a garage sale for 16.00! I put a pic of it on my blog. I was so excited.

    We had warm weather today too and all of my hyacinths popped!

  5. Hey Jacquie,
    those hexagons look bright and cheery. Production line is a good way t0 go sometimes. You must have alot of fun selecting all the colour combos?

    You can't beat line dried washing and bare feet on nice soft grass, gorgeous Magnolia too.

    Hope you are feeling much better all that sunshine is bound to cheer everyone up.

  14. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your hexagons Jacquie! Such a bright colour burst....ahhhhhhh....really, really uplifting! Can you tell I like them!!!! ha ha

    The magnolia is truly beautiful. Mr H bought me one a couple of years ago as I had harped on about how I adored them...we planted it and the slugs and snails ruined it in a couple of weeks! Learnt my lesson and will try again!!!!!

    Hope the sun is shining for you today!
