Hi everyone

For a couple of weeks now I have been feeling frustrated looking at all the wonderful projects on Flickr and Blogs.  So much wonderful, beautiful, inspiring creations.  I felt I was going nowhere, that I was not completing anything, that I had too much on the go, that ideas were leaking out and not becoming anything.

Suddenly I realised that I did have a lot of things to share with you!!!!

Firstly ......
I did have too many projects on the go and my mind was swirling between them and causing more chaos.  I have actually named one of the projects chaos as that is how it started and continued throughtout and I started this the night before the wedding ☺

Here is how it started ......

I like order, I follow patterns, I like knowing what to do next
and yet I allowed this to just happen, to let the colours dictate what I would do with each length of yarn
Not me at all!!!!
Well I did influence it a bit as the next photo shows

Just another six of my funny styled hexagons and it became this .....

More little projects and one large project to show, but they can wait for another post.

Need to keep it fresh  ☺  ☺  ☺

Bye for now

BTW - for those in the Northern Hemisphere it is finally getting cold down-under (well our version of cold anyway below 20C/68F)  I have the heater on cause of cold tootsies, socks and jumpers are coming out of hiding and long warm trackies are on too  ☺


  1. Those colours work surprisingly well together! I wouldn't have thought so when I saw the little scraps of yarn on your lounge! Congratulations! Well done!

  2. Well done Maria your hexi cushions a really lovely and the colours work so well together - look like you achieve loads to me!!! Looking forward to seeing the other projects too. How funny our temperature is heading towards 20c this week and to us that means summer on the way time to get out the summer clothes!!!!! x

  3. Well if this is what you can achieve from chaos you are doing very well Maria. Love the cushion and the colours go well together.

  4. Lovely cushions, maybe you just need to embrace the creative chaotic process?
    Have a good week

  5. These cushions are absolutely beautiful Maria. I really love the colour combination. Autumy colours I feel, just love how you have the white running through.
    Hugs to you Suex

  6. Such autumn appropriate colours! Seeing everyone's wonderful creations can be so inspiring but at the same time can seem like endless creativtiy exists in comparisont o my own - I think a lot can be said for following parts of a pattern and then taking it from there - simply choosing colours or comign up with soemthign completely different!

  7. I love the colours, they work so well together.

  8. Oh wow, I really like that, you have done such a great job!
