(I originally titled this post “Hex and the City” which I thought sounded so funny,
but as soon as I put it up, I felt a little too risque leaving it there. Lol. Not quite me.
Go ahead, call me a prude.)
I’m back. After a bumpy ride, we landed safely back in Salt Lake City last night.
We had a great trip and I have much goodness to share. (Many thanks again for all the great tips!!) I kept myself entertained while my husband was in his conference (museum, twice to H & M, fabric scouting) and we had a good time together riding the Staten Island Ferry and walking the Brooklyn Bridge to get pizza at Grimaldi’s. And some of the hexies came along with us for the adventure.
I must have had hexies on the brain because I spotted a bunch more in the city.
Did you know many New York sidewalks are made up of hexagons?
Then I found this piece of modern art at the Met.
(Can you find me? I’m in the top left corner.)
This work is by Anish Kapoor.
I wonder if Anish likes to quilt too?
I didn’t get a picture of possibly my favorite hexies spotted in NYC. I saw a kid with perfect hexagons shaved into his hair so that his head looked like a soccer ball. (A bit of pre-World Cup excitement perhaps?) Anyway, we were on a crazy jam-packed subway train and I just didn’t have the guts to pull out my camera.
And more hexies on the plane ride home.
It’s good to be home. Last week was kind of nuts (hence the kind of random blog posts) getting ready to go – laundry, finally switching all the winter clothes out of the kids’ drawers, more laundry, signing up for swimming lessons, etc. I’m excited to just enjoy the regular summer madness now. I will be back with more this week after I catch up on the latest laundry and hang out with the kids.
POST EDIT: I had no trouble taking my sewing with me on the plane. I brought a pair of blunt-nose kid scissors and a couple of needles. No issues whatsoever.
