Well hello May, didn't you just sneak up on me. Come to think of it, isn't it still March?
I've been trying to finish this blogpost for almost a week now but the weather has been so crappy - dully & grey that I haven't been able to get any photos. Well, stuff it. I've take a photo and edited it PicMonkey, so hopefully it looks ok.. does it?

So yes, being the start of May, it means that it's a time for a block show & tell!
The above block was the one I completed for May. I wanted to try my hand at hexies but instead of the basting (like I've done before), I wanted to glue the fabric to the hexie paper to see if it would work. Guess what..... it worked!  Yay!  
This is what I have done so far, four blocks. Now thinking ahead there will be 12 at the end of the year (one for each month), so should I do 3 blocks across with 3 down for 4 across and 3 down. Maybe there is another way for a layout, do you have any ideas or suggestions?

Hmm, I hadn't thought about a border, maybe I could add some strips around the edges (after I've joined them with a crochet border) like thisthis or even this?

So, now it's time to show us your block!!  Leave a link in the comments below for where we can find it or let me know if you want me to add a Linky to this post so you can add your photo.


  1. So did you enjoy doing the Hexi's? I have really fallen behind! "So Sorry" think little girl voice! We all laugh that is what Zoey tells after shes punches you or pokes you in the eye! Bet you know what thats like! I think your blocks are beautiful! Zoey got here Thurs, Mommas back in the hospital, keep us in your prayers! XX

    1. will do, hoping for all the best & back to 'normal' real soon.
