I've seen paper pieced hexagons in blog land forever... Admired them and quickly brushed them off as too fiddly. And it wasn't until I found Clare over at Selfsewn (earlier known as Summerfete, update her in your blogroll if you have missed that she has changed her blog name and URL) that something weird happened to me. My set of mind changed.

She prefers paper piecing because she loves the control of the work and because she can do it everywhere. She has a tutorial over the basics and after months of looking at this tutorial I took the big leap. I became a doer and just did it.
Come Walk With Me - Week 4
A quick one regarding the walking this week as I am so busy. Next week we weigh in and do a measure update. Exciting right? Or maybe not... However, we still have the chance to make those numbers go down a bit. So lets make a special effort this week. Push it a little bit further. A little bit more walking every day. You will be surprised what an extra 15 minutes a day will do to your waist line in one week. :D Lets do it girls. Go go go! Walk like you've never walked before! Find a new route. Walk a bit faster. Walk up and down a hill. Walk in the rain for 15 minutes. Leave the dog at home. Park the car far away from the grocery store entrance. Walk all the way through the village and turn around to go to the post office. Just add those small extra steps to it. We can do this.
I also want to encourage you all to visit Gill over at Gilly Flower to experience her blog walk. She took pictures on one of her walks last week and it was such great fun to walk with her. It felt like I was there for real. I great post. don't miss out on it and why don't you do the same? Take photos of your walk, reflect about nature. It is exploding everywhere right now. This is the perfect time for a nice looooooong walk. Enjoy. Stay focused. I'll be back by the end of the week. Until then Come Walk With Me!
