TA-DAAAAA!!!!! My new hexagon cushion!

Yep...I'm addicted to hexagons.  (Mel Goodsell's hex-along got me started...you can see her posts HEREHERE and HERE on her blog.)  I finished my cushion this week and I'm so happy with how it's turned out!  All that handstitching was worth it...and yes it was a LOT of handstitching!  LOL

Enough rambling...here are some pics!

These hexies...

Became this...

Which then became my hexagon cushion!

Here's what I did on the back...

I haven't decided where to use it yet...but I does look great with the red cushions on our couch!  :D
So there you have it..my first hexagon cushion.  I'm already making plans for another one.  Those little hexies are addictive! :)
