playing with elongated hexagon designs

Cutting Elongated Hexagons

I've been in a season of starting projects and not finishing them. I know you know what I'm talking about.

To be fair, some of them are reaching completion, but it could be a while before they all are. Some may never get there because they are almost just for trying something out and it doesn't matter if they cross the finish line. I just worry that I might hit project overwhelm on all the things I'd like to make, but won't.

Of course, ignoring that worry (and contributing to it), I cut some elongated hexagons to play with. That's three possible projects there, and looking at what's left of November, I know for a fact that I won't get them all done before I hit the end of this shape-theme. I'm hope, hope, hoping that I get one of them done.

What I HAVE gotten done are a few more things in preparation for Thanksgiving, and you can see my free Give Thanks pattern and an easy way to make placemats over at About.com.

Oh, and if I go underground for a few days here, it's because I'm working hard behind the scenes...to clean up all the mess of those started-but-not-finished projects. YIKES!


  1. I have a pattern that calls for elongated hexagons, but I don't know where to find them. So what paper do I buy to make my own?

    1. I just use heavy card stock for mine. Have you checked paperpieces.com for the elongated hexagons? They have some, but only a limited number of sizes.

  2. Love your creativity (and your wisdom about when it's okay to be quiet on the blog, too)!

  3. Thanks for the Give Thanks. I try to do that every day.
