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.  
Glad you stopped by.....Linda

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:
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

My Design Wall ....

For the first time in months I have something on my wall that isn't about a wedding quilt.  LOL
And since two of my female Grands are now married .... that means I now have two new guys added to the family.  
And that means I have two more snuggles to make for them because everyone in the family gets a snuggle quilt made by me.

Since Alivia & Brett's wedding was first this year I decided I'd start on Brett's quilt first.  And for that guy it could ONLY be about John Deer!
He is an engineer and works at John Deer in Waterloo, Iowa ....  he collects John Deer miniatures ... and he lives and breaths John Deer.  So it's only fitting.

The fabrics weren't as easy to find as I thought they would be ..... but I did eventually get enough to make the quilt kinda scrappy.

Soooo   after much pondering about a pattern I eventually settled on my favorite.  
What else but Tumblers!! 

 I'm still pondering the border(s).

And now since it's that day of the week again..... I'm linking to Judy's Blog

I hope you're having a great day. Glad you stopped by.....Linda

My Hexie BOM Update....

Yes I'm behind!!  Very behind!  Four months behind actually.
But I did manage to finish one more design from the Hexie Blog.
I think this one is June.

 And I'm now working on July.

2nd wedding quilt.....

On October 4th our family celebrated the second wedding this year.  Jess & Grant were married in Joplin.  Jessi is our granddaughter.  She chose a Gatsby theme for the reception and for the wedding her bridesmaids wore Taupe and the groomsmen wore black.  And then she added a touch of red .... Her lips and the red roses she carried.  The wedding ceremony was wonderful and the reception decorations were beautiful.   Sorry I don't have any pics to show you so I'll just move on to the quilt I made them.
The morning after the wedding a few of the family gathered in one of the rooms and the newlyweds opened the gifts that they received at the wedding.   Since Jess knew which gift was from me she wanted to open it last.    And of course they love it!!  lol

I originally made some of these blocks as a paper pieced BOM mystery from Carol Doak.   I needed several more blocks to make the quilt larger so when I made more blocks I reversed the colors and added a bit of red.   

Jessi, Grant and his mom are admiring the quilting that shows up so well on the black backing.  I had the Quilt Bugs use a gold thread.   So glad I chose that ..... It's gorgeous!

They love the label I added.

May I present the beautiful Mr & Mrs Conrad 
with their wedding quilt made with LOVE!!  

I hope you're having a great day. Glad you stopped by.....Linda
