|hexies ready to go-go|
the reason my piecing is rather random is that after completing the first two blocks, i noticed that the pattern in the book was slightly different from the pattern Katy had used on her cushion. i had to make a choice between the two. the pattern in the book featured complete blocks, side-by-side with squares in the corners. Katy's cushion was interlocking blocks. i decided i liked the dizzy look of the interlocking wheels. so i made one half block to fit in between the first 2 blocks i made (top left) and eventually tried my hand at 3 interlocking blocks (bottom right) to see what they were going to look like stacked. eventually, they'll all get joined up and filled in.

whew! did you follow all that?
now that i'm home, I've been running around like a crazy woman getting school started, the packing all put away, catching up on chores, and going to various appointments. i think i've been in the car more the last 4 days than i was on our road trip! i also think i need another staycation to recover from that trip.
it. was. insane.
i'm married to a high-octane man, so it didn't slow down or change much for the whole 5 weeks.
that's why i'd really like a staycation now. besides, vacations with children aren't vacations, they're trips and a change of location. fun, but not relaxing. i'm not complaining. i'm just saying i'm exhausted. (so why am i blogging? i missed quilting and you people!)
therefore, my cheater finishes for the Friday Finishes link-up with crazy mom are that i finished my road trip and i've featured the blocks i finished along the way. it's all i've got folks!
i promise i'll share something new or different soon.
