Help for Hexie-Aholics
I wanted to link up and share with Sarah that I did finish my class projects. I only had one more hexie to add to the 30's style. I struggled with the Batik one - not because it was a little more at task to needle, but I really hate working with Batiks (they make me shudder and my hands sweat and itch). I did cheat on the jewel cuts - machine sewn. Not sure I am a Hexie-Aholic yet.
After a few days of just hand stitching and lots of travel/meeting time, I needed to connect with my machine. Using the Scrap Challenge I wanted to tame my string tote (again). I have made enough string blocks to choke on, so went with log cabins. Just the last strips to add and then this can go into a flimsy. And now I can close the lid on that tote. *yes, those 30's JR strips in the back just might (I said might) become a Grandmother's Garden.
Because the furkids have been missing of late (they have hated that I have been away too many days), Moe was my sidekick - of sorts - while I stitched those log cabins. Bella is holding a grudge and hiding upstairs. She cracks me up, as soon as the machine stops, she runs downstairs to see if I am still there. If I speak to her, she runs back up - snot!
I have to clean up and set the banquet table back up again - I have a baby quilt to do for a student and I might as well get one of mine done as long as I have things on a roll.
