Winner!

I can’t believe it!  I won a giveaway at Just Keep Stitching today!  I get a Lizzie*Kate chart and a bag of lavender, can’t wait to get the chart, it’s a tooth fairy one and I’ll need to make a tooth fairy pillow in the next couple of years.

I haven’t been doing much sewing lately.  I was working so quickly and so much on the hexagon quilt that I tore my finger up pretty good.  I’ve been letting it heal and working on cross stitch instead.  I joined a SAL (stitch a long) on Facebook and we are working on Joan Elliott’s Dream pattern.  It’s one of a series of 4, and I’ve decided I might as well do all of them and hang them together.  Just waiting to get the book from the library.  Since I finished the first part of the SAL rather quickly I decided to pick up a UFO that has been sitting here for awhile.  It’s a kit that I bought on ebay years ago.  I finished 1 of the 3 parts last year and just put the whole thing away.  In about a week I’ve almost got the 2nd one completed.

I think I’ll be able to start working on the hexagon quilt again soon, I bought some new thimble pads last week, I’m hoping they will help and my finger won’t get all chewed up again.

I’ll be back soon!

Design Wall Monday

I’ve been working hard the last week on my hexagon quilt.  Every night after Alex goes to bed I can sit and watch basketball and/or shows with my husband and work on it.  I have a very small section left and I will be halfway done.  I stopped last week at my favorite quilt shop Anna’s Sewing Center and picked up 5 1/4 yards of white on white.  The white sections were starting to look the same, I needed some more variety.  Hoping to get the last section put together tonight while we watch tv and either get it added on tonight or tomorrow while Alex plays.  Then I need to start working on more flowers!  The picture is a little blurry, I took it with my iphone and was trying to keep the dog and Alex off of it.  It is so large I can’t get the picture on my sewing table anymore, it has to go on the floor.
