Last week I shared a crazy quilt snowball I made to swap with Rita. Thankfully before mailing it, I discovered I misunderstood her preferences, and I made a new one for her. Rita requested a hexagon shaped snowball embellished with roses and/or dragonflies. That was a far cry from the “Under the Sea” theme of the round one I almost sent to her…not to mention the shape. I appreciate Rita’s patience while waiting for her snowball. It was due by the end of July, but life got in the way.

I made a hexagon template before cutting Rita’s snowball. For safekeeping I’m uploading a copy in .pdf format. Feel free to print it out and use it if you’d like to try your hand at making a hexagon snowball.
A new home has been found for the round snowball I made orginally…Hollie claimed it, so I’ll be throwing it her way.
Until next time…
As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool. Proverbs 26:1
