Stash Enhancement...

I had my heart broken last month.
I found out that one of my very favorite brick & mortar quilt stores was closing!!  The owner decided it was time for her to retire.  Imagine that!!
So now Quilters Delight in Holdrege is no more.  Boohoohoo!!!

   But You know the saying:  "When life gives you lemons ....."  So I made lemonade and took advantage of her sale.
This is the pile all stacked up on my sewing chair.
 And these are closeups of the fabrics that I bought to fill in a few gaps in my stash.
Greys - blacks - and a couple of golds (just because I like them)

Purples & yellows

Pinks and a couple of blues.
 I should be set for awhile now.  Hahaha
(said no quilter ever)

My Design Wall.....????

Not much of a change going on in my studio.  A little addition added to the borders and I'm working on the sides now.
  This last week I spent working on my hexies.  I am glad to report that my knee is feeling a bit better.  I can now walk without my cane after therapy and a knee brace to help me stabilize it.
I'm heading over to Judy's Design Wall Monday to link up with a lot of other quilters.
And then I better get to my knee exercises.


I hope you  have a great week.

Bum Knee....

Since I tore my meniscus a couple of weeks ago I've been pretty much in my recliner most of the time and using my time to work on hexies.  
((That is when we're not driving out of town to our doctors appointment.  I'm getting really tired of seeing the inside of my car!!))

But my hexies!!!  I really do love working with them.  Yesterday I finished sewing all the white paths around so today I can add some more of the 'blocks' I have made.  

 See those four white hexies connected to the border.  Yeah, well there is a story about them.
As I'm so prone to do I was merrily sewing along adding border hexies and filling in with the white ones.
Until I got to the rust colored triangle. .... Ooops!! something didn't look right.  Sorry I didn't get a picture to compare the goof.  But to make this long story short(er) I hadn't paid attention to the line of my border and I sewed the hexies up one and continued the rest of the row.
Sooooo every other set of hexies I had to unstitch and resew the correct way.  Major "headslap"!
Oh well..... It only took a few hours correcting them and now I'm ready to move on.
AND.... Packers at 3:00pm and Chiefs at 7:00pm and Thanksgiving leftovers to finish up.  Oh Happy Day!!

I'm heading over to Kathy's Slow Stitching Sunday blog to check out some of the other stitchers.  

Come on and join us.

My Slow Stitching Sunday....

Of course a good game of football is always on.  Go Packers!  That allows me to be able to stitch on my hexies.  I have now finished the Nov Hexie BOM.   I am completely caught up after being soooo far behind.  Feels good!

Now I'm working on more diamond blocks for this quilt.   I do have a few more finished but I'll wait to post an update until I get more sewn together.
So today I'm linking up to Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching and Hexie Weekend over at A Quilting Readers Garden.
Have a great Sunday ..... I'm going to sew some hexies now.

What's on my Design Wall?

Brett's snuggle quilt and the first three borders.  I'm working on the fourth border that has been all un-stitched now.
My design finally came together so now I just have to make sure I pay attention to the way each piece is supposed to attach to the next.

Slow (un)Stitching Sunday....

Getting ready to watch our Chiefs play this afternoon while I unstitch 57 pairs of tumblers.
These will go in the border of Brett's Christmas snuggle and I was just having a wonderful time pairing them together and stitching along.

Something made me stop and check the first one..... 

Well Dang!!

Sooooo guess I'll have something to do while watching football.  LOL
And I'll link to Kathy's Slow Stitching Sunday

I hope you're having a great Sunday.

Hexies .... update .... again

Two more "blocks" finished on the Hexie BOM.
This is Septembers 'block'.  It's supposed to be a Bluebird but
I decided to make mine a red Cardinal.  We have them at our
feeders in the back yard and I enjoy them so much.

This is October and is a Candy Corn.  After I had most of the
brown hexies sewn together I realized I should have used cream
instead of brown.  But I'm sticking with the pattern color as she designed.
Now I'm getting ready to cut my fabric to get Novembers block finished so I'll be caught up.
Today I'll post these to our Yahoo Hexie Group and also to Needle and Thread Thursday
Then tomorrow I'll link to Hexie Weekend 
I hope you're having a great day and a wonderful weekend. Glad you stopped by.....Linda

Hexie update...

I haven't been sewing much at my machine lately ..... but I have been doing a LOT of sitting with an ice bag on my knee.  So that gave me the perfect opportunity to catch up on my Hexie BOM.
Two more months finished:
 July
August
And..... I'm almost finished with September.  Yay for me!  I did have a lot of TV programs that I could catch up on so that's good.
About my knee???  I don't know!  All I know was it hurt like He!!
 I've now had an x-ray taken and this week an MRIwill be scheduled.
Doc did give me a cortisone shot in the knee so that calmed the pain.

 I'm going to link to Judy's Design Wall Monday.
I hope you're having a great day. Glad you stopped by.....Linda
