WIP Wednesday: The Sidetracked Edition

What I should be working on: Christine's December block for the We Bee Learning Bee. It's a Broken Herringbone block (Play Craft's tutorial is here). Aqua, red and grey has been an incredibly popular colour combination and this is the first time I've used them together. So far, so good.

The other project I should be working on: finishing the binding on the Hungry Caterpillar Quilt. I'm making progress, inch by inch, but my attention is elsewhere.

I've caught the hexie bug! All I want to do is add to my hexagon block. I plan to keep adding hexies until I have a 12.5 by 12.5 block to add to my collection of plum and chartreuse blocks (acquired via the 3 x 6 bee on Flickr).

I'm linking up with  Freshly Pieced and the Canadian Needle and Thread Network. Head on over to see what everyone else is working on.


  1. Oh no! You put your blog name on the pictures and now I can't steal them any more. How am I supposed to decorate my Myspace page now?

  2. I like the colours of your broken herringbone. I keep looking at doing some hexies just haven't decided what, but may have to wait if they are too addictive!

  3. Your hexies are gorgeous... love that color combination!

  4. Love the hexies too, colors are fabulous. I hope you link up the caterpillar quilt too, I'd like to see the full quilt.

  5. I just love those hexies, Lisa. I can see why you are sidetracked. :)

  6. Hexies are nice but I don't want to catch the bug! LOL

  7. Hello fellow Torontonian! :)

    Here from TNTN - great work!

  8. Love it! Glad you caught the bug - I tried and failed but I'm always happy to see other people enjoy it. :-)

    Hope you and your family had a wonderful Hanukkah!
