One at a time!
And this thing is taking on a life of it’s own…but first I have to tell you a funny story. ((Yes, I have lots of those!))
Sitting on the plane in Chicago on my return trip from Portland, Oregon –we are all buckled in at the gate, ready to go ---
The cabin door is closed.
All cell phones and electronic devices are turned off and safely stowed away ((But I swear I could still hear a distinct text beeping in the pocket of a guy a few rows up…sheeesh!))
Lo and behold--
((Don’t you love "Lo and Behold.."? It makes you listen harder, doesn’t it?!? ANTICIPATION!))
The voice of our captain comes over the loud speaker telling us they are waiting for some paperwork and it will be about 15 minutes before we can back away from the gate.
While I hear other passengers sigh and moan -- I smile to myself and OUT COME THE HEXIES!
And there to the seat to the left of me…..coming out of HER bag – I see:
She was SMOCKING!!
We looked at each other and laughed, both agreeing that we had chosen the right section of the plane to sit.
We had a delightful conversation all the way from Chicago to Greensboro ---and I felt like I had crossed paths with a kindred spirit.
Of course, these were Easter dresses ---and she was actually helping her sister out who was running behind schedule on getting the dresses done –and like a good auntie she was pitching in. Sweet!
Three cheers for random-acts-of-public-stitching!
So this is how the hexies grew this trip – amazing what you can get done while sitting in airports and on planes:
While waiting for my first flight out of Greensboro on my way to Portland
The morning AFTER arriving in Portland
((That was a long long travel day! And yes, this is the hotel room bathroom floor!))
After returning from Portland and spending today waiting at the car dealership!
Shamu had an oil change and tires rotated for our trip tomorrow.
And because I was there in the dealership and couldn’t resist:
Now THIS is what I call a Hood Ornament!
Close Up and Personal!
It will go in the car with me for more property searching tomorrow – the next task is to put a row of neutral all the way around this center medallion to separate it from the next round…I’ll be spending some time this evening cutting some more neutral hexies as my variety is really low after finishing the last hexie top.
And just for fun ---
