Mission Accomplished--not quite!

I thought I was going to celebrate a red letter day--my Stitching Society 180 wool hexagons were all finished! 
The Bell

Pine Branch
 I don't think I've shown these yet--
Dresden Plate

Endless Chain

Winding Ways
 When I got to these last two pattern pages, I was feeling pretty lazy and was so ready to be finished with my hexagons.

The last two designs #179 and #180I just couldn't face doing all those tiny bike parts or musical notes--I am stitched out!
 So, being super lazy, I came up with two very simple designs of my own:
Stork Embroidery Scissor
I laid my scissor on the wool and traced it--one piece of wool.

Sad Iron
I just kind of eyeballed this from a Google image--that's why it looks weird!
But only 4 pieces--yay!!
180 designs DONE!!
I counted and recounted and could only come up with 179 wool hexagons---whaaaaat????
It took a while--a long while--for me to figure out where I went wrong.
 I had never duplicated the hexagon I used in this pillow--rats!
 So, you know what my Slow Sunday Stitching will be--the last hexagon!!!
Linking up with Kathy at Slow Sunday Stitching HERE and WIP's Be Gone HERE
