Looking looking looking

Still doing the hexies and the shawl but now I think I found a Quilt Along I want to join.

Sew Fresh Quilts


Hexie Diamonds

Well, I added the last two rows of diamonds to the top. Looking good. From there I sat down with graph paper to figure how I plan to complete this top. Now, I'm busy sewing the last tid bits up to fill out the top. Once, I'm finished with that it will be time to square it up and quilt. Yay!

I'm already itching to start another. Diamond stars or a row by row hexie designs. Oh, the possibilities. I think I'll do the stars first. It's going to be a bit of a challenge for the row by row and this will give me plenty of time to cut hexies. Really don't want to run out.

Thank You Daughter

My sweet daughter came over to the house yesterday and helped get me motivated and inspired and even a little organized.  My quilt board was fuller and now it's getting empty....
I took those two blocks down and squared them up and then sewed them together.  I now have an original pillow by me  :-)

Thanks again Lisa but now I have to clean my machine. Thread keeps globbing up and won't let me sew anything.

I haven't got much sewing done this week. Been busy in the kitchen. Been baking breads and even canned more apple butter as well as cranberry apple butter. Yummy!
Yes, more butters. My family ate it all gone and when I went shopping 3lb bags of apples were saling for 98 cents. So, of course, what was I to do. Have to say they're happy with all the work.

I did sew me up some bread bags for putting my bread up. So my sewing machine got some use.

Busy, Busy, Busy

Well the cabinet I was hoping to acquire fell through. However, my husband brought home a lovely dresser for our bedroom. So, with some rearranging, I wrestled our old dresser into the craft room. Then I proceeded to gather my fabrics, refold and organize them into the drawers. That way everything is close at hand. I think it turned out well.

Yes, I know mom. Need to come over your way and help you with yours.

After spending dinner with David and Flora, we came home to watch a little TV. I had a small case of heartburn from the Mexican food but I thought it would go away. By 0400 my Stomach has settled enough that I could lay down but then I couldn't sleep because I couldn't breathe. I got on my CPAP and it helped as long as I laid on my back, but then the straps are so worn out they kept slipping off my head so I put my CPAP away and tried to lay down again but more in a sitting position.  Now the heartburn returns and it is building to a scorching ball of fire.  I definitely can't sleep. Here it is 0700 and no sleep and still have the heartburn. Instead of tossing and turning in bed I get out so hubby can get some rest. I'm now in my chair in a reclined position...I can breathe but can't sleep.  Took medicine to get rid of the heartburn and am now waiting for it to take effect. Gonna be an interesting day.  NOT!

So Close

Been working away on my scrappy diamond hexie blanket. Just have two more rows to add and then my filler triangles. So, got busy cutting out more hexies.

All in all good, because it gave me something to work on this morning while I sat at my husbands work place waiting to go vote. Its a one car situation over here.

Found a project

and finished it tonight, I made an orange one even though my colors aren't orange but it will stand out in the kitchen.
Bottle Brush
and yes I'm making a Blue one for Lisa.
