One Flower Wednesday (or Thurs. or Friday)

I'm a little behind.  I did sew this flower in time to post it for One Flower Wednesday but I've been in a funk for a few days.  You know the one I'm talking about.  The thinking that says 'I'm never going to blog again', 'I'm never going to sew again', 'I don't feel like reading', 'I'm sick of watching videos', 'zentangle isn't much fun lately', 'this 501 Project is stupid'.  Sometimes when I get this way, to get out of it, I cut my hair.  But the last time I had it cut, I had it cut real short and it's not quite long enough yet.  So I colored it instead.  I just happened to have a box of color hanging around.  About six months ago, in another funk, I decided I was never going to color my hair again.  It was such a pain to keep up with and I do like gray hair.  But I was sick of how awful the 'growing out' looked.  So...

Oops!  Off topic.  TMI?

Here's my flower:


I had about 5 minutes to get myself together and out the door to go babysitting.  My kit had some hexagons made up but none I wanted to use so I grabbed some purple fabric and some previously used templates.  I didn't have time to find the unused templates.  I guess I'm not that organized after all.

To see other flowers in this week's 'One Flower Wednesday', visit Journey of a Quilter.

Oh!  By the way, I feel better now.  I've started putting together the brown/tan quilt.  I'm going to quilt it in sections.

Hope you have a good day.

Your hexie flower turned out beautiful. I enjoyed reading about your "funk" although I realize it must have been terrible living through it. Post a picture of you with your new hair color. I'd love to see it. Here's to no more "funk" days although "funky" days might be more fun.

Oh yeah, I have had those funks too. I haven't colored my hair in years, but I'll have to give that a whirl next time. My hair is too short to cut again too.
