Angie's Hexie Weekend........

I "BEARLY" finished these hexies.....giggle

I can not believe it is already Friday again.....:(
Good news is on most Friday's I get to have a Cheeseburger from Superior Burger in downtown Elgin.  My favorite local burger place.

Here's a review Tasty Texas Travels

Taste so much better than it looks.  Cheeseburgers, fries, and soda less than $6.00.

The Last Look......Sew Spooky

Totally finished!
(click on the photos for a closer look)

I have a house of windows with no walls to hold my quilts.  What else to do, but hang it in the window.  On the other side of the window is a covered patio.  There will be no direct sunlight coming in.

The gorgeous quilting is by Valerie Smith at Pumpkin Patch Quilter
