Okay I had another slack posting week last week, but I have some good excuses really. Excuse One….camping.
Yep I spent four days camping last week….Four whole days without a sewing machine, a computer, cell phone connection or a shower! Despite the limitations I did manage to get some quilting done….
I hexied up a storm… four days of hand work produced this lovely collection finished and ready to go….
I love the flexibility and ease of English paper piecing. Whenever I am heading out the door to an appointment or event where I think I may have some spare time I just grab my hexie kit, just in case.
So here is a much overdue shot of my quilt top so far… it is growing slowly.
I am adding flowers willy nilly, I am sure there is an easier way to put the top together but I kind of like the “stick and flower here, stick a flower there” approach.
My husband declared a month or so ago that this quilt was going to be his, because (1) this would ensure that he got a quilt eventually and (2) it would also ensure that I did not give this quilt away, as I am prone to do!
It does not seem to bother the cat either…
Excuse number two for my slack posting will be part of Wednesday’s post….
