May-ness


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.
