Update More Hexagons

Before we went away  I cut what I thought was enough fabric for the white background  and enough of the floral prints to make the flowers  to do me for a month. I also cut enough cardboard templates to last me the same amount of time. We had a couple of rainy days so I could just and stitch the fabric onto the cardboard and then sew them together.
I thought that I would try and get at least one finished basket with background done, but that wasn't to be. I did do enough Hexagons to make a basket but my concentration isn't the best as I just sat and joined and then when I though that I had done enough to fit into a space on the basket they just wouldn't fit. I had to fit them onto another basket so now I have a few baskets all up to the same stage and no baskets finsihed. Anyway I used all the fabric up that I had cut and now have to cut some more, a job I really do not like.

It's still progress! It might not be the progress you planned, but it all has to be done, so it'll work out.

The cutting isn't the fun part, is it? I love your color choices - I think the deeper reds go very well with your pastels.
