Inverse Hexies

In math, we use the term "inverse" for operations that "undo" each other or are like the reverse of each other...division is the inverse of multiplication, subtraction is the inverse of addition....etc.  (Now stay with me here....try to focus....how many times a day do you think I say that in my classroom??) Just a little math to start your day.   : D

Anyway, I finished 3 hexagon flowers this week.  And each one is the "inverse" of one I posted about last wednesday. I inverted the fabric....center became the petals, petals became the center.
Just Peachy became Peachy, Just a Bit
Pretty in Pink became Pink 'n' Pretty
Powder Puff became Puffed Powder

And....that's not all I got done.  But that's all for my One Flower Wednesday post.  Looking forward to seeing all of the new flowers this week.
