Rhodies and Hexies

First I thought I would share the rhodies as they are particularly full and vibrant this year. I've heard that they don't transplant well so when the foundation finally gets fixed these are going to go bye bye.

And then I thought I would share just how close I am to "finishing" Mr Serious!!!

Finished is kind of a vague term. 

Is it finished when I baste the last hexie and whipstitch it to one of the half moons I've been making to create columns? Is it finished when all the columns are complete (lots of half moons to stitch into columns, as seen above)? Is it finished when this quadrant is complete? Is it finished when the half plus 2 quarters become one piece?

As you will recall from me saying it over and over and over - I wanted to complete the top in 9 months. It was a goal that I worked towards but never expected to meet so this was left pretty vague as well because is it a strict 270 days (30/month), which is this Thursday or by the calendar which is next Tuesday (9/9 to 6/9)???

Considering that I only have ***THIRTY SEVEN*** hexies left to go, I will:

(a) Ignore everything else tonight to get as many hexies stitched as possible. It could take solid 3 hours to get all 37 stitched. Unless I fall asleep first from all the extra stitching over the weekend...

(b) Spend my free time (and there isn't much this week) to get the half moons into columns and hopefully even get this quadrant together by Thursday.

(c) Cry, when I didn't get the thing truly done and dusted as one completed top by Tuesday due to an overextended schedule this week into next.

(d) Rejoice when I bend the definitions of finished and 9 months to make it sound like I did it in time!

Oh, such pretty flowers!
I am so impressed with what you have done in 9 months on Mr. Serious. And I vote for option D. :)

Beautiful bush. I could never grow them so I have up. Well, YOU made the hexie challenge yours so I guess you can define the rules at will, lol.
xx, Carol

Wow, pretty flowers!
I think you are sooo close to the finishing, you are totally allowed to bend the definitions as necessary.
