Hexagons and French Knots

Today has been a weird Sunday.  I am motivated to do everything and nothing all at once.  This next week is so crammed packed full that I think I'm kind of taking it easy mentally before everything comes flying at me.  

I started basted these back in March when I picked up a Rowan Kaffe Collective set of 2-1/2 inch squares.  I thought I knew what pattern I was going to use them for, and then a found something fun to try and soon realized I didn't have enough fabric.  I spent over an hour last night looking for these fabrics on line and did get some ordered.  I'm hoping they get here quickly as although basting these little guys goes quickly, sewing them together does not.  

I spent some time in the swing on Friday night making french knots...I used to hate french knots, that is until I learned how to do them and now I have to say they were enjoyable.  No pattern watching, just sat and enjoyed the beautiful weather while completing my sheep and star.  Now to decide, a pillow or an ornament?  I'm off to do some cleaning.  My son's teacher is coming for a home visit before school starts to get to know him a little, and I'd hate for her to leave with threads and fabric snips on her backside! :)  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen
