A long travel day from the Southwest to the Southeast just doesn’t give a girl much to blog about!
But it does give her lots of time to sit and sew hexies!
I’ve been carrying this section around for quite a while..I think I started this section before Thanksgiving, and I didn’t pick it up at all during the month of December.
It only travels.
When I left for Texas, the floral border was still in the making. I assemble that section separately, and then attach it to the rest.
I completed the floral border, and here you see I am working on the single row of neutral hexies to frame that.
No, no first class this leg, but some how I ended up in seat 20f which had no seat in front of it! Leg room...but then no where to put my bag!
It's a toss up....leg room won out!
Adding the red!
By the time I left Atlanta I had the neutral row completed and the red half way done!
I laid it out on the carpet to get a good look-see at what simple sewing during otherwise “wasted” time can accomplish:
Over 200 hexies in this section so far!
This is fill in section #4 of 6. There is still a long way’s to go on this quilt, but you can see how things are coming together in my Thanksgiving 2014 post HERE.
When I finish these sections, it’s time to figure out what I’m going to do to bring it out to a rectangle. I don’t want a hexagonal quilt! Probably mega neutrals..I love that look, and then frame it with some sort of hexie border.
This girl missed me!
But this is what I got when she found I didn’t bring treats:
Hahaha! I caught her in a yawn, and it deserved a caption!
And so it’s back to work!
This is the pile on my dining room table this morning. There are over 50 online orders to fill…and FINALLY I can ship out those backorders that were waiting for the reprint of Scraps & Shirttails II to arrive from the warehouse. Of course, they arrived here at home 2 days after I left for Texas.
It ALL goes out today. I want everything caught up!
I’ve been asked about Quilt-Cam. It’s not going to happen for a while. The Hubster returns from a business trip to California tonight. We haven’t had a family dinner here for 2 1/2 weeks! We are headed to the cabin tomorrow afternoon – I need lessons on driving that Rzr! Monday morning I am off to Georgia to teach for the week.
When I drive back up on the 24th, I’m stopping in Charlotte to pick up friends Randy and Lori who are coming in to retreat at Quilt Villa with me for a week!
I need to have everything together that has to go with me up to the cabin on the 24th WITH ME when I leave for Georgia on Monday because I won’t be coming back here in between.
The ONLY time it would work between would be this Sunday Evening ---and I don’t know if I can swing it because I’ll have just arrived home from the cabin, and packing the van for leaving the next morning.
We will resume Quilt-Cam as quickly as I am able, and if we can do an impromptu Sunday evening I’ll let you know.
It’s good to be home! I just wish I had an extra week in between before I have to head off again. At least this next trip is a driving one!
Have a great Thursday everyone – I know this is rambling, but getting it out on “paper” is helping me wrap my mind around all that needs doing.
Let’s get it done!
