A Birthday Project: Weeks 49-52

I celebrated my birthday earlier this week, so my yearlong hexagon project that honored the last year of my 20s is over. As part of celebrating a year in my life, I made 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 wood grain hexagon and move clockwise):

Day 337: First Packer game of the season — got my green and gold!

Day 338: Took a fun tour of our wood shop at work!

Day 339: Hubby has the stomach flu.

Day 340: A sad and shocking day at work as a large round of layoffs took place.

Day 341: After such a shake-up at work, I’m trying hard to feel anchored in my job and life.

Day 342: Had our one-night charity Sew-In for the One Million Pillowcase Challenge.

Day 343: Received my DNA results from Ancestry.com. I was surprised to find that a small percentage of me was from the Baltic States.


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

Day 360: Sending my brother some long-distance love for his birthday!

Day 361: A last sunny and nice day this year.

Day 362: Feeling refreshed in my life and ready for the next decade of my life!

Day 363: Team spirit day at work, so I’m routing for my Drake bulldogs.

Day 364: My last day of 29, and I’m feeling in the exact spot I’m supposed to be at, and am thankful where this journey has led me!


Above is a sneak peek of the quilt! I’ll be doing a more in-depth post about this quilt and how I assembled it soon! And I’ll be using the hashtag #lindsayhexies29 on Instagram to share pictures.

Thanks for joining me for “happy hour,”

Lindsay
