Spring and a Hexagon

It's probably a little too early in the growing season here in the Midwest, but I bought a few annuals and planted the pot on my front porch.  The low temperatures are supposed to be close to freezing a few nights next week, but hopefully I can cover them and keep them going.  


These flowers are called Ranunculus, and this is the first time I've grown these.  I think the blooms look a lot like roses.  


I don't have much to show in the way of sewing, but here is a hexagon that I just finished.  These are 3/4".  I'm not sure where it will end up, but I like the pink and brown combination.


Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today!

Darling hexies! Love the fussy cut center.

I have also put some flowers in pots. I guess the growing season is a little bit earlier here in Texas. I just can't wait to plant things at the end of winter. The seasons are just long enough. Pretty hexies.

A sweet hexie - tiny is always so eyecatching and appealing!
Think Spring jumped around us - snow showers called for in the days ahead. - hope Spring remembers to drop by again soon.

Going to get close to freezing here, too, so I will wait until after next week to get some flowers potted.

I love your hexies ... so pretty! And so tiny!

I can't ever remember to water, let alone cover a pot on my porch, so I gave up on having one years ago, but I think they are so lovely. I have never grown ranunculus, but it is a beautiful flower.
That is a sweet hexie with the bird in the center. Pink & brown are a great combo--working with it myself right now. : )

Our dog is digging up my flowers from my pots.....frustrating.

Your flowers are lovely. I am so terrible with flowers. I never seem to remember to water them.

Pretty hexagons and flowers! I finally got my first hexagons sewn this morning. Tiny and cute - they are 5/8" size. Thanks again for your pointers and help!

judith lockhart said...

Excuse me, LuAnn, my hexagons were 3/8" - now that is small!

Jeanne said...

Love your hexie and the flowers are beautiful! Sure missed you in Shipshe this spring. Counting down to November or maybe August in G.R.?

Dawn said...

Very pretty! The flowers and the hexies.
I have been resisting the urge to hit the nurseries, now you are chipping away my goal to wait until after Mothers Day!

serendipity said...

Wow! You your quilts are stunning. Puts my humble efforts to shame. xx

Charo said...

LuAnn, do you cut all your hexies from paper or do you buy them? you make loads of them!

And you always find the right fabric to fussy cut. I love your blocks
