Some years ago Susannah Conway decided not to blog in August but post a photo everyday. That was the beginning of Augustbreak which is a yearly event since then. I am part of it this year - posting a picture to Susannah's prompts every day on Instagram. Here are the pictures of the first week.
The prompts were: breakfast, air, skin, numbers, citrus, notebooks, 5 facts about myself and smooth.
Every year in summer I have a special love affair - with hexagons. They are easy, portable (as I spend a lot of time in my cousin's garden), they just require needle and thread, some paper hexies and some fabric and - great advantage in these very hot days - you don't have a whole quilt top on your lap but just a small piece of fabric in your fingers.
I just pulled out green, turquoise, violett and blue batik fabric - all of them reminding me of the ocean - and started to baste. Still no plan what I will do with the hexagons. Maybe they will become a cushion, hopefully they will end as a whole quilt - will see. In the meantime I am happily basting away.
