Checking in

I can't believe I have one post for the entire month!  Our house is on the market and between the stress of lots of viewings but no offers and having to keep our place spic and span for all those viewings, I haven't been doing much sewing.  But I've got a few things on the go, and I thought you might like to know where they're at.

My bundle of Denyse Schmidt's Picnic and Fairgrounds arrived and I think I cut into it that same day.  I'm going to be writing this quilt up as a pattern, so this is just a sneak peek.

I've cut all my yellows for my big hexagon quilt.  And started sewing them, which is no fun.  Lots of set in seams!

And finally I've been doing lots of hand stitching of hexies.

I'm making a throw, or at least that's the plan.  No idea yet on the size, I'll probably just keep going until I get fed up.  For now, I'm sewing the hexies into flowers, which I'll sew together once I have more assembled.

Snip, snip, stitch, stitch.
