Hexagoning along

I've been working the last few days on my hexagons. Way above the four a day I need to have this completed by Valentines Day.  Pretty exciting stuff.  That leaves more time for me to cre8te my background.

We finally got around to going to look at Christmas lights.  Year after year we visit Candy Cane Lane which takes in donations for the MACC Fund.  We were a bit surprised that even though they were supposed to be open through last night, over 3/4 of the homes had their decorations out but not lit.

Here is an old time favorite of mine.  I'm not even sure why.  Maybe because it's so comical?  Maybe because I can't fathom where they store this dinosaur ever year?


I fed my snowflake addiction...and held the shutter open a wee bit too long.


I've decided to name this home "Christmas Massacre."  There's just waaaaaaaayyyy too much going on.  BUT, some of their paintings do include Nightmare Before Christmas characters so maybe that IS what they're going for afterall??


Moving out of Candy Cane Lane and into Morgan Oaks, I leave you with my two favorite holiday houses.

So what are the hexigons gonna be? I'm thinking maybe a heart? I've played with a few but so far have only made a little flower with a peace sign in the middle. Gonna play with that some more for the youngest. Not sure what it'll end up being. Happy New Year

Loving how the hexi's are turning out. You're way ahead to be done by V-day. I need to get my kit out and make the v-day tablerunner up that I bought at the quilt show.
