Christmas snuggle

I'm not getting very far with this piecing since I've been away from home most of this last week and the beginning of this week.  But I do have a few more blocks made.  I'm hoping tomorrow I can get back at it.

I'm linking to Work In Progress Wednesday.
I hope you're having a great day. Glad you stopped by.....Linda

Slow Sunday....

This last week was one crazy ride.  And I mean that literally!
Ride: as in riding in a car to go to a Dr appt.
From Tuesday through Friday one of us had an appt to keep.  So we were traveling South one day and then North the next.... then wash and repeat.
I think I'm beginning to really dislike the inside of our car!!

Sooooo to help me unwind I've spent yesterday and today basting hexies.  I want to get a good supply ready so I will be able to make each 'block' different.


I've cut more greens and browns but I still need to pull blues and dark reds and perhaps a few dark purples.  Looks like I'll be scrounging in my scrap drawers.   Here are all the basted hexies so far.

 And I did get one more block stitched together.   It looks very bright and loud when it's displayed with the others .... so I may not use it in this project.  I'll see.

Here they are all lined up.  See what I mean?  Yeah!  It's bright all right!  
I'm going to link to A Quilting Reader's Garden 
and since I haven't shared my hand stitching lately I'll link over on Kathy's Slow Stitching Sunday.

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

Design Wall Monday....

Another Christmas snuggle in the process.   This will be for our youngest granddaughter.  When I had the girls check out the Christmas fabrics I had in my stash she was the first one that spoke up and said she wanted these.  Don't ask where I got them because I can't remember that far back.  haha
I picked up some green and red to use as an accent and went straight to EQ.  It took a bit of changing directions on the design because I only have one yard of each of the three fabrics.  I finally came up with the pattern that would work and that I liked. I'm paper-piecing the corners.  


And since it's Monday I'm heading to Judy's to link to her Design Wall.  

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

Hexie Friday update

I've managed to get a couple of triangles sewn together this week and another one almost finished.















And I also finished the last item that I'll donate for our Guild Auction to be held the first of August October.  I'm rather amazed that I'm ahead of schedule.
Here's the Halloween set:
Today I'll be cutting out the pieces for one more Christmas snuggle quilt.  
And I'm a day late but I'm still going to link over on Quilting Readers Garden for Hexie Friday.  
I hope you're having a great day. Glad you stopped by.....Linda

Monday......

.... And my wall is empty.  These last couple of days I did manage to get the binding made and attached on the table topper for our Guilds Auction.   Another finish feels good.
This is my #2 auction item. 
The Quilt Bugs did the quilting for me.  A simple meander.
It measures 40" square 

So now I'm working on getting my last guild auction item quilted.  (the halloween placemats and runner).  
I'm linking to Judy's Design Wall Monday.

Hexie update:

Well.... I have changed my mind again.  Of Course!!  Don't I always?
Now about what I posted last week.... about making a tumbling block pattern.
I don't think so.
I'm going to follow the layout as shown here.
And yes!!  I may just change my mind again along the way.  ;-)

This week I've been focusing on getting ahead with my basting.  
I've also started to pull more fabrics so I'll have a greater assortment.



And I do have one more triangle sewn.



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