I took the plunge

I took the plunge and gave in to try my hand at making hexies. I'm not sure that they are addictive, for me, as everyone says they are. They are fun and I do very much enjoy having something to do with my hands while watching tv. Here's what I've gotten done so far....

Hubby keeps asking me what I'm making. Honestly, I have no clue. As far as I know I'm still seeing if I enjoy it. So, this is where I need your assistance... What should I make? I have 1/2 yard of each blue and white cut into 2.5 inch hexies, but what do I make?

Nifty Blogger Tip

I learned another new thing yesterday (besides the need to clean out my sewing machine). Did you know that in blogger, if the admin has the Blogger bar tuned on in the settings, then readers can Follow the blog that way instead of searching all over for the Followers link in sidebars? Seriously, how cool is that!!  Here's a snapshot of my blog and I have drawn a pretty little circle and arrow to show you where to look.

You can click on the picture to see it bigger if you'd like. Thought I would share this nifty blogger tip so others will know, too. Do you have other tips that readers or admins might not know? Share them with us in the comments. Lets see what else we can all learn today!

I Have Learned My Lesson...

As I hold my head down in shame I show you this picture. It is the lint out of my sewing machine from the past year (pictured next to a dirty quarter). I know, I know... I pulled a big no-no. I kept putting off cleaning out my machine because I was afraid of what I would find and that I wouldn't be able to put my machine back together. 

I did it. I succeeded. I am no longer afraid! My machine runs like new again and I have learned my lesson: Clean out your machine after each project.

Quilt Top

I don't generally post quilts that aren't finished, but I wanted to share this one. All I've done so far is get the top completed. I have the pieced back up on my design board, but with so many obligations right now it's been sitting there a week.

I call this quilt the book quilt because it looks like books to me. It is also done out of Sherbet Pips, yet again. This is my last quilt ever for a while out of Pips (3 is enough). So, here it is in all it's unfinished glory...

This was actually a very fast quilt top, and I honestly don't know why I don't have a completed quilt yet. My poor 7 year old DD keeps asking for it, so I have to get it finished soon! I'm such a bad mama. :)

Happy Quilting!

A Nice Surprise

While I was away this past weekend, I had a nice surprise come, and it was waiting for me when I returned. Want to know what it was?

That's right! Aurifil!! I got this nice color card and a bunch of samples!  I'm going to be trying out some Aurifil thread myself because I have never (*gasp*) tried any. Oh, and guess what that means for my awesome readers...yep, that's right! I will be having a giveaway soon!
