A Birthday Project: Weeks 41-44

I have exactly two months left in my hexagon project! Hexagons have dominated my life this past year — I’m so happy I learned how to English paper piece and think I’ll continue doing it long after this project has ended. 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 with the yellow hexagon, move to the purple hexagon and move clockwise):

Day 281: We are finally harvested cherry tomatoes from the garden!

Day 282: Our hostas are blooming gorgeous purple flowers.

Day 283: Feeling so lucky to live in Des Moines!

Day 284: Put up new curtains in my sewing room!

Day 285: Tornados swept through the area. With the recent flooding and the wind damage, my heart is going out to all those affected in our city.

Day 286: Spending all my extra time in the garden.

Day 287: Celebrated my 1,000 Instagram post! (If you’re not following me yet, let’s connect!)

Thanks for joining me for “happy hour,”

Lindsay
