There are no signs of spring here in Cape Breton except the quilty kind. I pulled out my scrap box and decided to make my own signs of spring - some little hexie flowers. I can't lay out my projects on the deck to take a picture because of the snow, so instead, I carefully opened the patio door so the snow wouldn't fall inside and leaned over to lay a few hexies on the snow bank for a picture.
Needless to say, much of the deck was in the shade!
The hexies looked so lonely so I scoured the house and found a batch of hexies already made...
so I pinned those to the snow bank too!
I have no idea how to use them. I may use them as alternating blocks in a 9-patch cuddle quilt. Today it is very cold but the sun is out so I think I'll continue making more signs of spring!
