Happy Hexagons

I have gone and started something new *sigh*.  Really, this is all Annette's fault. ( Hi Annette!)  She began making those darn hexagons and I didn't even hesitate.  Just grabbed a scrap of fabric and some paper and the next thing you know I had a pile.  This blog too, was making them, and I have to wonder what took me so long to try this paper piecing thing.  
So far I'm using my vintage sheet stash.  And I couldn't be satisfied with a normal sized hexie,  I had to super size it (like here).  I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to do with these big ones yet. 
But I did make a little table topper...

I'm going to practice my free motion quilting on this one, and add some hand quilting too.
 And what's a little hexagon making without some crochet?

Love. Making. Hexagons.  Can you tell?

 This will be my last post for a while, since my surgery is right after Easter.  I will still be visiting everyone to see what you're up too!  I'm hoping for an easy recovery with the help of some good drugs my family, and the second season of Downton Abbey on DVD.
 Hope you have a great weekend!
