Hexagon Mess!

It was one of those days, my brain was on vacation.
I put some of the outer hexes on last night when I was tired.
That was a mistake, today I realized I did it wrong.
So, I had to rip out the hexagons and that isn't easy with small pieces.
Then I starting resewing and realized I had it wrong again, that happened twice, lol.
Luckily I could move them around, so the ragged edges will be trimmed when I put on a binding.
After I got this done I realized I had an extra row in the middle and I really wanted an extra row on the outer ends to lengthen it there. But, I do not have enough of the green to add to that, so I am stuck with what I have.

So, this is it, looks off, but will have to do. I want to do quilting on it and thinking green piping for binding?
They say you learn from your mistakes, so when does the learning come in?

This is my special month, the one I prefer not to think about, but I wanted to do something special for my followers.
Look for a giveaway this Sunday.

It does look tricky to put together & working tired probably doesn't help... but it does look very nice. :)

I love your runner! I don't see a thing wrong, girlfriend!! You amaze me with those hexagons. I love them but don't think I'd ever be able to pull it off.

How frustrating it must have been to sew your little pieces together wrong....not just once but twice! Alls well that ends well.

I think it looks great! Hang in there, my special month or as I refer to it the month from He__ is March. But now I have two wonderful grandbabies born in March so things are on the upswing!

Looks good to me!! Sometimes it's hard to call it a night when you are in the middle of a project. I've been victim of many mistakes when I've been to tired!
