Every 6 months...

I think I'm on the every-6-months posting schedule.  I'm okay with that.  I don't have much time and when I do, there's nothing to post!  HAHA.   From my beginning days of blogging, my life has evolved into taking part in a few basic human tasks:  I cook, I clean, I take pictures, and I crochet.  Oh, and I read books and eat.  Can't forget about those!  I'm super good at eating.

So when I'm not cooking, cleaning, or eating (reading doesn't count because I can listen to a book and do all aforementioned activities), I have found that crochet is the easiest, cleanest activity for me.  {I despise cleaning up a project...}

These particular blankets are for one of my favorite friends, Lisa.  Her story is here if you want to read it - what a marvelous opportunity for us to serve our community.

This little confetti blanket is my favorite out of this batch, I think! 

I also found a Youtube video and taught myself to make Hexi's!  Being the bee lover that I am, it only makes sense that I make a hex blanket.  I'm super excited to see how it turns out.  I'm not too sure about the darker orange color - so I'll try out a bunch of different colors until I get it just right.  And now....only 98 more hexi's to go!  woohoo.

Have a happy day, everyone!!!

Those blankets are adorable! What kind of yarn is that confetti yarn? I love it! Also would you mind sharing the youtube video you found for those hexagons. I haven't found a pattern that I like that is "full" and doesn't look too much like a granny square :) Thank you for sharing!

The confetti yarn is called Bernat Dippity Dots Peach. 😀
Here is the Youtube link I used to learn the hexis :
