Hexigon Rosette of sorts

Yesterday is a day thankfully over.... all that I will say is Mr H's hugs are just right; but you will have to take my word for it!! Moving on .... I could not seem to do anything. I felt totally scatter brain, then as I was looking up something, unknown to me now, I found a U Tube for a hexagon turned into a rosette---sort of
look beyond the fact they have not been pressed.... I was lucky to even do these yesterday. But I love how easy it was. The video of course was not in English, but her hands spoke for her. The larger one started as a 4 1/2 cut piece finishing at 2 1/4 and the smaller one was cut at 3 1/3 with a finish of 1 3/4. I used my Hexagon template from ez-quilting. This was a piece  from my fabric scraps. I think I may try to do another with  step by step pictures for a reference guide. I think I may also do one for Teneriffe. You know how it is if you do not do something all the time, it is easy to forget a step. As it is, I can not find the video on line! I still have not tried to do the traditional hexis that so many gals make lovely things from. I tell you often how Mr H loves our garden and his small pond, well yesterday I caught one of the fish on camera...
this is one of 3. The 2 larger ones, about a foot long, are about 5 years old and were 2 inches and 79 cents each from Walmart. They had a baby along the way who is only 3 years old. I say if the Hawks who fly around the house catch sight of them, well, let's not think about it.
So, on to today. This morning I will be off to run an errand then I hope to be creative with Red, poor neglected Red with that wolf on her heels! It has bee so nice to chat with you and I thank you for your kind words and your friendship...have a good day.

Very pretty rosettes. I am sure you can find lots of uses for them.
A heron ate all our fish when hubby left the netting off after he'd cut back some of the plant life round the pond.
