HeLP for Hexie-aholics, day 2

Hello and Welcome to HeLP for Hexie-aholics
the monthly linky party for anything and everything EPP!!

Sorry about yesterday. I blogged about the fire but as soon as I got home from that and had a shower the rescue squad siren went off. As soon as I was done with a call, the siren would go off again and again and again! Basically, I was out of the house from 730am to 915pm. By the end of the day I wasn't quite sure *what* day it was. I think I only managed to baste 2 hexies the whole day so I am really lacking in progress and photos today.

Why 2 partial twisted hexies you ask? Well I had 1 at home and 1 at work so I wasn't carting them back and forth when they don't fit in my kit. That stay at work hexie kit is working well!

I have 18 of these single twisted hexies done and just a few more papers. When I finish basting these papers I'll join the hexies into rosettes. I already have 5 rosettes done and this batch will give me 5 more so I'll then join the rosettes - all this to free up and reuse the papers since I don't feel like ordering more until after Christmas. I'm sure I'll have to at some point but lets stall and see what Santa brings first. wink wink.

Did you make any hexie gifts this year? I didn't :(

Ok folks, now its your turn to share! I want to see your hexie projects of any shape, size or vintage. Hexie dream projects are more than welcome.

Please be sure to link to a specific post...links to your blog in general will be deleted. Please let me know if you need help with linking to just a post.

PS - Make sure you come back for January's HeLP because it's going to be a trifecta!!! Not only will it be HeLP for Hexie-aholics, but it will be Feline Friday and the best of all, it will be my birthday!!!! There will be giveaways!!!

PPS - Ain't it pirty??! I know some of my Aussie friends need a cool off while some of my local friends are sick of shoveling...

You're a busy woman, for sure. Take care! Good to see your half hexies growing slowly.
We have no snow, just rain and storm every day. Looking forward to your birthday HeLP.

I have multiple kits, too, so I can grab what I feel like working on. there is one for basting triangles, one for basting squares, and one for my wheels. if I worked out of the house, I would totally keep one there, too. great idea!

thanks for linking in to "in hand" epp party!

I don't think I would have known what day it was either after all that........
At least you got in a few stitches.
And it does look pretty !!!!
But I hate being cold so I'll stay in Darwin.
Stay safe !!!!!!

Wow, sounds like you had quite a day!!

Karen H said...

What a day you must have had but I suppose it was even worse for those affected by it! I really like the hexies you are doing. They are so interesting the way they interconnect. Also thanks for visiting my blog and commenting! I wanted to thank you in a personal note but couldn't because your comment is showing as a no-reply blogger! Thanks for running the link party!

Those twisted hexies look interesting. I'll be back to see what they look like in rosettes. And we have three times the amount of snow plus -40. I'd be happy to share some of our weather with the Aussies or anyone else that wants some.

you certainly had a busy fire fighting day. Hexies as usual looking great, you are an inspiration, look forward to seeing what you are doing with these assorted shapes. I am frugal and cut my hexies out myself, have now a sizzix machine but can only do one size of hexies on it, hopefully they will bring more dies out but they will have to be cheaper!

Good work being with the fire victims.
I made my quilty friends each a hexi mug rug. :) Had to keep the theme going.
