Piecing Myself Together again

Well here we are again on PYT Tuesday and linking up with Anthea for all things EPP.

So I have several Morris Hexathon blocks to share with you.

First of all #16 Hammersmith Terrace.

Having cut all the pieces for the mini version I chickened out of the tiny triangles hence the little hexie flower!

#17 Folly. Made a right hash of the centre so appliqued the little circle on to hide it!

#18 Parquetry

This weeks block is well under way but I shall save it for the next EPP post as I have this to show you

Yes, I have started to put together my blue swap flowers and am feeling happy with my yellow path so far. Can you see the brown grass and dead moss under my hexies? It's two and a half months since we had any decent rain and the garden is looking oh so sad. Here is one corner of what we call the little garden - dead grass and sad plants.

We have storms forecast for this evening but as they will be accompanied by strong winds they will probably do more harm than good! Any rain though will be gratefully welcomed.

Have a good week.


  1. Lovely hexies. I haven't done the folly as yet. It's next on my list.

    We've had very little rain. All we have is brown grass and lots of weeds.

  2. I like your Hexathon blocks. Good for you - up to date, that is more than I can say. I'm three behind.
    Your garden looks like mine, very dry and sad.

  3. I love EPP so these are interesting ideas for future projects. Thanks!
    Good luck getting a gentle rain. LeeAnna at not afraid of color

  4. Some of the EPP blocks look rather complicated but so pretty. Love your hexies with the yellow paths , great job ! My oh my you really need rain and so do we but not that badly . Hope you get some soon , we have some in the forecast for tomorrow.

  5. Your blocks like great.....so effective! I hope your garden gets a little drink soon x

  6. Beautiful EPP projects, they are so much fun to make.

  7. Oh my - they're all so gorgeous but I love the one with the appliqued center the best!!! Hope you get a good soaking, gentle rain....

  8. They are all beautiful! Poor garden - sure needs a drink!

  9. Your hexagon blocks are gorgeous and your GFG in blue is lovely. I hope you get rain soon. Texas, USA is very dry as well and we could also use some rain.

  10. Wow, those are rather complicated hexie blocks! You are a patient woman to hand piece all of those together. Your quilt is coming along so nicely. Sorry about the lack of rain, your yard looks rather crunchy. I hope that changes soon for you now that fall is here.
    Have a great weekend,

  11. A good recovery on number 17 - and all the best for the right sort of rain!

  12. Your hexathon are fabulous ,love them all.I love hexies.

  13. Such wonderful EPP projects! The little hexies are adorable.

  14. Hi Lin
    Wow the Morris blocks look great... clever idea to do a hexy flower instead of those tinsy-tiny triangles! I hope the storms didn't do much damage & some needed rains fell instead.
