Hexie -a-day with Katja Marek

I have invested in
The New Hexagon - Perpetual Calendar 
by Katja Marek for my work desk.
Each day has a new Hexagon.

Instead of just looking at the hexies each day as I flip the calendar over I thoughgt that I might actually try to sew one a day.  I know that some days it will not be possible so on those day I will not stress but try again the next day.  Realistically, one a day for me will be much easier once the kids are back at school in February!

To make the task a little more achievable I have the pre cut papers from Paper Pieces.
The link is HERE if you would like to take a look.

 Today is my first day and I am pleased to say I have sewn my Hexie :)

I have decided to use my overflowing scrap baskets of Bonnie and Camille Fabrics.

A few weeks ago I received a surprise parcel in the mail from the Fat Quarter Shop.
It was a very exciting Happy Mail Day because when I opened the box it was full
of Planner goodies. Lori Holt Planner Goodies.


I am a planner girl so these are an amazing gift to receive.
It has pages for your Projects that you are planning, a weekly Planner. A section of tips and organisation, SIX patterns and then a room for notes.

I am going to record my hexies and have drawn up a little grid so I have a visual reference as to how good (or bad) I am going with my one a day :)

So far so good :)

Are you already sewing a here a day from this Calendar?
If not feel free to join in and also sew a Hexie a day.
I will be sharing my daily hexies over on my Instagram account and then back here once a week, I am thinking a Sunday, for a round up of how I went.

Happy Stitching,

Sharon xx


  1. I was given this calendar as a gift a few weeks ago...I might just see along with you

  2. so glad you mentioned this calendar: I got it a few months ago and didn't realized that it started in Dec. I need to get it out and get busy! :-) Your hexie looks great!
