Mini Hex Patchwork Crochet

Hi everyone, hope you are all ok and finally enjoying Spring!

I have managed to get back to a few stitches this week and oh my - it does feel theraputic!  You may want to take a look at SIBOL as I have posted details of two experimental squares with zingy colours and a spiral pattern.  It is really nice to experiment and crochet lends itself to this because it is so easy to 'make things up' and so easy to 'frog' if it all goes pear shaped! 

I have started another project which was buzzing around in my brain for a while and I hope it turns out ok, but we shall see.  This involves lots of mini hexagons - which  I have made into a truly simple design   - excellent for beginners and can be joined-as-you-go to make these

They are coming along fine - cripes! look at all those ends to be sewin in!  a good film and a bar of choc should help kill the boredom of that task!

I am aiming for a traditional patchwork look - see how it goes!

Before I go today look at this Amyrillis

It was a christmas present and has taken aaaaages to get this far, but just keeps growing up and up!  I saw the lady who gave it to me a couple of weeks ago and she asked me how it was growing and I said it was nowhere near flowering - hers had finished - I think she thought I was making it up - must be a slow grower, will show you when it eventually flowers.

Have a  great day, and thank you for your comments - much appreciated.

Speak soon xx


  1. Kim, these mini hexagons are brilliant. Really so pretty, well done. Also the squares that you have been doing for 'SIBOL' are just so fun of sun! So bright and cheerful. They look easy enough to do.
    Now your Amyrillis,yours is very very late flowering. My Mom has had two brilliant ones. I remember when I first got married I kept them in our flat. They grew so tall and the red flowers were absolutely gorgeous. Maybe its too cold on the window sill.
    I don't know, I haven't got green fingers! But as long as it flowers 'sometime' it will be lovely.
    Congratulations on your blog, it's looking really good. You are certainly getting the hang of it now.
    Hugs and Love Suex

  2. These look great! Don't you just love it when you finally get to try one of your own ideas and it works out just fine? The Amyrillis looks like a mighty fine specimen and the bloom will probably be more welcome at this time of year as Spring is so late.
    Take care.

    Off to check out the spiral squares on SIBOL.

  4. Oh poo I meant hexie of course !!

  5. Your hexagons are fantastic. Bright and cheerful.

  6. I love your mini hexagons... would you share with us how you did them in a later post? And I also love the squares you did for SIBOL... you have inspired me to try to make one up myself! :)

  7. Wow!!! An explosion of colours with flowers and hexagon flowers - Love them all

  8. Thank you for stopping by and commenting on the rag wreath. I posted a link to your blog last year when I made your little snowman. I just love him! He's still hanging from the lamp on my desk.
