Angie's Hexie Weekend

No hexies for me today.

I'm working on the binding for my Sew Spooky Quilt.
The gorgeous quilting was done by the Amazing Valerie Smith at the Pumpkin Patch Quilter

Warning below are pictures of where I sew.....giggle.
What a mess!


At one time I had plans of cleaning this disaster, but then I started to sew again.  I believe I'm channeling Eleanor Burns in this photo.


Everyone have a great day!

The Tartankiwi Butterfly Challenge

Finally finished my Butterfly!!!

The Tartankiwi

I had so much fun picking the fabrics for this wonderful butterfly pattern.  I see Ants to Sugar made hers into a pillow.  I like hers so much, I might do the same.


I was hoping to get some great photos of Mr. Woody, but along came.......

and chased him away.

I'll be linking up with

The Tartankiwi

stitch by stitch

Have a great rest of the week.  See you on Friday for Angie's Hexie Weekend.

Hexie Weekend with Angie

I'm working on my August hexie

2014 Hexie BOM


(click on the photos to enlarge)

My helper Elly loves to hold my blocks in place for me.

Sweet birdies outside my bedroom window
always make me smile.

Yesterday this probably a new mamma squirrel had one arm hanging over this little fence watching us at the dining room table.  I had to take her photo from the other side.
Too funny.

Miss Momma stopped for a snack of her own.

New QALs

I've added some I wished I could QALs on my sidebar.  I've not been able to keep up with my sewing for the last year or two.  I'm trying not to start anything new....for real folks.

Have a great rest of the week!

My Granddog Lucky!
Isn't she gorgeous even at 7.

How could that big, beautiful dog be hiding from my sweet Elly???

Because.......when Lucky is around Elly turns into an Attack Cat just waiting to get her.

Elly looks so innocent.

Lucky's kitty is named Elvis and loves to play with Lucky.  Elvis has no claws.  Makes for much more fun.

Enjoy the weekend and link up your hexie's or eye candy below.
