Hexie Weekend

I'm all played out and ready to go in and take my nap on Grandma's couch

Is Elly waiting around the corner of the door to attach???

Do I take a chance?

I'm sure that ^*)%$ dog is thinking about coming back in my house.  I better go hide behind the kitchen table in wait.


No sewing for me.  I had a couple of days cleaning house in preparation of my sweet cousin Sandra Ann  and Ron coming to visit.  We had so much fun talking and catching up.  My throat is now hoarse...:))


Don't forget about Angie's Hexie Weekend.  Just link up below with whatever eye candy or photos you want to share.
