A Birthday Project: Weeks 9 and 10

It seems I’m always a few weeks behind on my daily hexagons — turns out finding the perfect fabric for each day is a little harder than I thought. I’m currently 70 hexagons into my birthday quilt! As part of celebrating a year in my life, I’m making a hexagon to describe each day! (You can read more about this project here.)

Here’s a little description of what each hexagon means (start in the middle, move to the brown hexagon and move clockwise):

Day 57: Took an exciting chance and felt like a rock star!

Day 58: Caught up with a great friend over a glass of wine.

Day 59: Started my first blog hop for one of my free patterns! Did you miss it? Get the pattern and see the participants here.

Day 60: First flurries of the year! It’s been a warm December and seeing flurries really got me in the Christmas spirit!

Day 61: Finished wrapping the last of the presents tonight. It was such a relief to not do anything last-minute this year.

Day 62: A whole day off with nothing to do — I felt free as a bird.

Day 63: Sewed my first hexagons by machine to make a tree skirt. You can see it here!

Here’s a little description of what each hexagon means (start in the middle, move to the red hexagon and move clockwise):

Day 64: Went to a local craft fair to do some Christmas shopping and connect with makers.

Day 65: Our weekly Quiltmas videos (which involve fun Christmas sweaters) are my favorite part of my week. If you missed them, read more about them here.

Day 66: Spent the night planning for 2018. Wrote down goals, planned out my January, and filled in parts of my Quilter’s Planner!

Day 67: At work, we launched our new pattern store. Check it out here!

Day 68: Saw Star Wars opening night. (You’ll get no spoilers from me, but I loved it!)

Day 69: Met up with friends for cocktail night!

Day 70: A sick day for hubby meant that our cat and I were quiet as a mouse and had a low-key day.

I’ll update my hexagon progress every week or two! And I’ll be using the hashtag #lindsayhexies29 on Instagram to share pictures.

Thanks for joining me for “happy hour,”
