One Flower Wednesday and A New Project

I haven't posted in a very long time and I have decided I needed to start again. I read recently that if you set aside time everyday to do what you want, you are more relaxed and have a more positive outlook. Sounds simple, but is actually very hard. 

One of the things I used to do was the One Flower Wednesday. I love English Paper Piecing and it is very relaxing to me. I have several projects going and 2 of them are grandmother flower gardens. The original one you can see pictures in older posts below. I have started a new smaller one for a wall hanging. So as of today, I am making a commitment to start One Flower Wednesdays again. Here is my Wednesday flower (sorry it is fuzzy).

Here is a layout of the new wall hanging that I started. It is made with 1/2" pieces and the centers are small circle dots, petals are batiks, and leaves are 2 Jo Morton fabrics. None of the flowers are sewn together and I am still trying to decide if I want the final shape to be a diamond or hexagon. If I do a hexagon shape I will have 5 extra flowers. Maybe have a hexagon wall hanging and another small rectangle one  with the left over flowers? I have decided to name the project Red Hot Garden.
