I love sewing them together, it makes me feel so traditional :) Doing the same thing that women have done for ages.

Simone said...

I am loving how quick the hexagons come together to create a flower. After glueing the fabric to the papers it is just a matter of choosing which fabric complements the next and then sewing the hexagons together.
I am so loving creating the flowers.

Leonie said...

I love the fact that it's something I can do by hand-I can take it with me and pick it up and put it down easily.

De said...

I lovee the fact that the hexies are portable and that each one is individual

Debbie said...

I like sewing my hexagons on a night duty when it is quiet! They are easy to take with me and easy to pack up if we get busy.

I love that they are portable and that they allow me to create something totally by hand

Lyn said...

The best things are watching them grow, petal by petal...it is quite relaxing, sorting and cutting the fabric then sewing the hexagons together...and being by hand I can sit and sew wherever and whenever I have a moment to spare...

Florence said...

I like to have some in my purse, I did this when I expect my daughter skating ...

Anne-Mette said...

I enjoy seing the flowers grow and I enjoy, that I relax so well while sewing my flowers after a day at work. And not to forget - they are sooo easy to take along when going somewhere.

I love hat I can take them with me for any free moments at the soccer field, dr's office or even a really long traffic light!

I enjoy sewing my HEXIE flowers so much and I love that I can take the materials with me on long trips and sew. Thanks for the opportunity to win the little cardboard shapes. (duh, why did I draw a blank on what those little cardboard things are called?)

I enjoy how relaxing it is to sew hexies. There is very little thinking about it & they just quickly come together. All good! Tracee xx

Gabriella said...

I love to match the hexies and I love how to grow up ... to form my "Secret garden"

loriginsberg said...

I love everything about my hexagons! The whole process is very relaxing and fulfilling. I especially like looking at all my prepared hexies stacked up so pretty in the box I store them in :)

Diane (di) said...

Oh my goodness, this is easy. They're portable, relaxing and so drool-worthy to look at. And I've discovered that you can actually get more of them stitched if you stop staring at them. lol Love.

I love Hexagons because they are great to take anywhere, anytime. In fact I even worked on them during a two day retirement seminar last week that i went to with hubby. No use wasting good sewing time just sitting listening.

Sandra Kaye said...

I like that I can put them down, and not work on them for awhile and pick them back up and not need to remember what I need to do. It's like a no thinking project. :):) Sandie

Carla said...

I love choosing fabrics for each new flower. Kind of like choosing for a new quilt each time. Enjoy

Kari @ The Purple Quiltapotamus said...

I love how I don't need a machine to make a flower, and its so relaxing.
Thanks for the chance to win such a great giveaway!!

I love handstitching and being able to take this portable project anywhere. I love picking out the colours and fabrics for each flower and how beautiful they look when they are pieced together. I did some when my grandma was in the hospital and I was sitting by her bedside.

Roseanne said...

I love it becaue there is no sewing machineand I can take them with me the last 4 month I have been going to the dentist so I took my hexies with me every time.

Jo in TAS said...

I love that I can take my hexies anywhere! Best portable project ever!

Annette said...

to get started would be good, have some fabrics but no papers :((

I love the way I can relax working with my hexagons. And it is also a fantastic way to use some of your scraps.

Luciana said...

I love projects with hexies, they are fantastic for portables projects and very relaxing.

Natasha said...

I love Possum Blossom! She is amazing. I also love hexies. Thanks.

Liz said...

I love that you can pick them up and take them anywhere and the colors are endless. i am really enjoying the fussy cut ones

Sunnysandra said...

What I love best about hexagons is that it is each time a small project (one flower). Also I love to bring some fabrics together and see my flower grow.
Thanks for this giveaway, hope I'm lucky this time.

Jeanne said...

I have never made a hexie. To me they are very old fashioned. I love them but they look hard. I have no idea how to make them. I would have to get a pattern and go on YouTube and watch a video and then I could probably make them. I would love to win some!!!! Today is the first time I've been to your blog. I found it through a woman from Ireland. I'm from the USA. Hope I win!!! Nice site! I will be checking it on my tours of blogs.

Have a nice day:)

I love the fact that they are transportable. So I can get a stitching fix no matter where I go. Watching the kids sport, out camping, watching us win the Rugby world cup (ha ha). thanks for the inspiration Leanne.

Janelle said...

Where does one even start?
- Portable (love this!), it actually means I get to do sewing during my break at work.
- Pretty. Let's face it hexagon flowers are sooooo cute!
- Scraps - I finely get to use up all my tidbits of fabric that have been lying around.
- Fussy cutting - Love creating super cute flowers that have either a fussy cut centre or petals.
- Rewarding - every time I complete another flower and see my stack grow higher I could jump for joy.

Waiting time is no longer wasted time. It is a conversation starter as others watch you stitch away. It has a lovely traditional feel. And so many of us feel the same...........
