for today I had a different post in draft
until last night, when I took a good look at my pile of hexagons

a few more and I can go and start joining them

but before joining I like to know how many of them there are
that will allow me to decide what shape to give the blanket

and then the following idea came to my mind

let's play that old game together
you know, where you see a bucket full of gumballs, coins or other items
and try to guess how many there are exactly ~ in return for a little treat

wanna play?

anyone can join
let me know in a comment to this post
how many hexagons you think there are in this large vase
and I will send a little treat to the winner ~ the right guess or the closest number

to give you a little more clues:
- all colors I used are represented on the left
- every color represents one ball of yarn, except for the white ones, of that color I used three yarnballs
- because the size of the vase is hard for you to estimate, I put my high heel boots next to it
- and on top of that I put the hexagons in a row, the look of it reminds me of the very hungry caterpillar

try your Easter-treat-luck!
winner will be announced at the end of Easter Monday, Dutch time

~ wishing you all a very happy, peaceful and sunny Easter ~
