Hexie Hop Day #3 - My day!

Welcome!
  I hope you've been enjoying visiting all the blogs on this hop. There's been so many wonderful hexie projects to admire and be inspired by (and there's more to come... aren't we lucky! ;o). 

First off, I want to give thanks to the two ladies that made this hop happen.   A lot of work goes on behind the scenes of these hops, without which, we would not be having so much fun.  Three cheers to cheerleader and  Hexie Queen, Debby, for being our wonderful hostess on this hop. Special thanks and appreciate cheers also go to our headcheerleader and  Queen of Fun, Madame Samm, for her boundless creativity and enthusiasm.



What hexie project did I make to share with you today?

Introducing my...




I designed this pillow specifically for support when reading and although I've made other versions

(click  to see the "Manly" version or  to see the "One Heart" version),

I've tweaked my design so that all that hexie goodness can be made from 3 charm packs.




There's also a handy pocket for you to tuck your reading glasses (which I don't need just yet, thank you ;o) or in the case of my son,  it's a pocket for placing his MP3 when he's relaxing on his own pillow.


It just so happens I stitched up another hexie project this summer.  Click here to see more.
 
 
I love to read before going to sleep at night and this pillow allows me to do so in comfort!
 
Wouldn't you like one for your bed?
 
You're in luck! 
 
My PDF pattern  is now available
on Craftsy!
 

 
click HERE for my pattern.
 
 
 
Thanks so much for visiting and sharing a little hexie love!
 
Don't stop yet, there's more to enjoy from my fellow hoppers. 
 
Let's go cheer them on...

  11. Your pillow is great and I need a pocket (and lots of other things) so I don't lose my glasses. A very pretty and clever pillow. I love it. And, the star quilt inside a large hexie is amazing. I really like it, too. You have a great duo. Thanks for participating and sharing your creativity. I think I might like to try the wall hanging some day. I hope to see you soon in more hops.

Should I make one for my husband who hogs the bed with FIVE (yes, that's the number 5) pillows when he's sitting up reading? Your work is beautiful and I really like your circle quilting. Thanks so much for sharing today.
