with all the paper templates.
Finally, all the sections were
And I started to see what it would

The next step was to connect all the rows
with the diamond shape.
It looked fantastic to see it all together.
I had been putzing along at a pretty good clip,

Hexagons don't leave a straight edge,
but a very bumpy road.
The directions said to cut each side
