Hidden surprises

Without having book deadlines, and with the situation at home (refer to the Hillbilly Handiworks blog), I made a decision. One that takes a LOAD OFF MY SHOULDERS!
Do you know what that decision is?

NO MORE DEADLINES. None. Not for now at least. I always work every spare minute I get anyway, so I am not sure how deadlines help..anyway..what THAT means is this...

I have a plan that I made, and I stick to that plan. I don't give myself timelines until my husband is better. I don't promise to do other things because there is too much on my plate as it is. I do what works for the Hillbilly!

What does that mean for you and for that ahhhhs?

Well I work through my checklist that I've been chiseling at but its been hard as I have to go from here to there to there and back and forth trying to catch up. Instead..I just work through it.

Yesterday I did number 1 on the list: I updated all of the ahhhs to include discount pricing.

Number 2) I get secondary patterns drawn up. That means...I am not going to release any new ahhhhs until they are done! Seriously...don't die. But if I hold their release it is so much smarter, as I can show secondary patterns as we go. When I do get back to releasing, they will have all the secondary patterns and such included in the release all at once. Now that is much better.

So, therefore, I better get to drawing! Check out these secondary doo dads. A couple of them I just love!!

Number 36: Sliced Hexagon
is a super simple ahhhh. and popular because of that. Rainbows are also popular so I just colored one like a rainbow and showed you how the pattern looks if you leave them all the same direction (top) or twist them (bottom). 

#37 Sun Stone
Is another one of those popular hexi settings. I colored them all the same here and twisted every other one to create a little flower pattern in the centers. 

is the first little hidden surprise today. It's not a popular choice but look... this might change some minds.

is similar to a couple of others but very unique in its own way. I have shown it both directions. 

Number 40: Snooker
 is probably your biggest surprise this week! I have always loved this one and the fun that it can create.
I used the same ahhhh over and over and did three different layouts with that ahhhh.
Isn't it amazing? 

Just play folks. Amazing awaits you! 


  1. looks great! can you 38 without the hole in the middle? so that would be 3 up against each other? or something like that.....
