100 Hexies All About Me Days 1-7

Woah! Where did I go for a bit there!? Or you might want to know where we didn’t go… it’s been the best part of a fortnight since my last post and I will tell you where we went but first I thought I’d share 100 hexies with you!  you will have to scroll all the way to the end to find out about our absence!

It’s taken a tremendous amount of effort to do this post, part of me would be happy to let the blog lie empty a little while longer. I’d love to be using all my spare/non spare time sewing and playing with my kids but I appear to be blogging in my head. Everything I do I write it in my head and it starts to get annoying so here I am tapping away in an effort to stop the constant story in my head!

Today I’m going to be posting a series of Instagram photos based on the 100 hexie project.  100 days 100 hexies, making and creating 100 hexies on a given weekly theme and posting them under the hashtag 100hexies100days2018.  I joined instagram last year in the midst of this challenge and I knew then I’d love to take part in it. So this year I am!   The first weeks theme is all about me and here are all the photos that I have posted with text:

Hello my name is Karen and I love hexies! I’m going to take part in this years #100hexies100days2018. I joined Instagram in the midst of the end of last years challenge and thought it was pretty cool… This weeks theme is all about me and I will try and encapsulate me in hexies. I’m going to be adding these to my half inch hexie I spy quilt. Why Two Tiny Makes? It’s come from my blog name Two Tiny Hands, a name that became when I had my son 3 years ago. Two adorable tiny hands. I quite regularly refer to me and my blog as Two Tiny so adding Makes to this just made sense to me! I’ll be adding to my story as the week goes on… . . . #fussycutting #epp #hexieflower #englishpaperpiecing #eppfussycutting #eppeverywhere #handsewing #sewing #hexies #homemade #hexielove #hexieseverywhere

Continuing on with my story today for the #100hexies100days2018 it’s all about sewing. It’s something I’ve re-kindled in the past 9 months since my little girl was born. I lost the sew-jo when my son was born 3 years ago and I hadn’t realised how much I’d missed it. This lovely Instagram community has spurred me on in more ways than they know and I’m really enjoying sewing and learning again. I’ve sewn all my life in some form, I was obsessed with teddy kits when I was a girl and made all sorts of stuffed animals. I love making useful things and I hope to continue pursuing my sewing over the coming years while my kids are young and beyond! . . . . . . #fussycutting #epp #hexieflower #englishpaperpiecing #eppfussycutting #eppeverywhere #handsewing #sewing #hexies #homemade #hexielove #hexieseverywhere

Next week is all about Summer so come back then to find out more.  Where have we been the past couple of weeks?   On holiday!!  Camping in Silverdale, by the Beach at Anstruther in Scotland, Edinburgh Fringe, The Festival of Quilts, visiting castles and finally staying at Helvellyn YHA.  I will go into more depth to all of these one day but for now I’ll leave you to look back over all my cute little hexies!
