I'm done with "round 2" of the hexie flowers.
Each "round" I look at my stash of scraps, I have little cubbies where I have fabrics sorted by color.
I have 7 cubbies
so I take 2 scraps from each one for the outer part of the hexie flowers and use smaller scraps for the inside. AND I have this plastic container I think for beads where the hexies in progress fit perfectly 14 at a time.
Today I just had to start on my custoners 8 pillow tops, I haven't done pillow tops like this on the long arm before, I've done mini quilts one at a time, but here she wanted basic leaves all over and gave me muslin for backing, so two pillow tops fit a WOF perfectly.
I'm halfway done- 4 down 4 to go.
Oh I just HAD to show this too- a neighbor invited the kids and I to go a pick blackberries in their back yard, so we did that and had plenty for a cobbler. yum!
Then today I got this little package!! I knew it was a pin cushion for the pin cushion swap, but didn't know what it would look like...
look! a little house! isn't it cute? and with a little owl on top, isn't that fitting? :-)
And even a little own pin on top too, what a HOOT!
Cherry made this for me. THANKS!
