Thankfulness...


Hubby carved the turkey.


We all filled our plates. (Note hubby's mac and cheese - it was delish!)


The we all sat around and watched football. (And I basted hexies…)


Today the Christmas decorations are coming out.

This morning (imagine drum roll here) I finished my 2014 Hexie BOM quilt top!!!! Yippee! I love it!
I'll be photographing it tomorrow for the blog post on December 1. I've been pinching myself all afternoon - so excited that it is all sewn together!!!!!

Tonight I'll be basting 3/4 inch hexies - that's right - I'm getting a jump start on the new 2015 Hexie BOM! I'm sure most of you realized that I was designing the 2014 blocks as I went. Sometimes I'd be scrounging at the last minute to design and make the block for the next month. BUT, I have already designed ALL the 2015 blocks!!! This will help me so much, as I can get ahead easily. I'll be basting a bunch of these little hexies to stockpile for the year ahead.

Tomorrow I'm hitting a couple of sales, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Then we'll be settling in to watch the Iron Bowl on TV.

  1. sounds ike you have a great Thanksgiving and wow ahead of yourself both for the hexie challenge for 2015 and the Christmas decorations, nor given a thought to Xmas yet. So looking froward to 1st when we will see the quilt in all its glory. I think I will still use 1" hexies next year as I have the papers for them but maybe i will cut out some smaller ones though |I sold the sizzix machine so would mean cutting by hand and that is not so accurate. Happy spending t the black friday sales I am avoiding them!

  2. Can't wait to see your finished product for 2014 Hexie BOM! I am feverishly working on my 1/2" but slow on the 1" for some reason - think is because I haven't completely decided how to do my sashing on that one. Ready to start making 3/4" HEXIES when my shipment arrives from Paper Pieces.com next week, but haven't decided on my motif for that. I am sort of wanting to do some of the fussy cutting, but not sure yet. Have so much Civil War fabric left over from the Farmer's Wife I'm doing that I should probably use up that, but not very colorful. Glad you had a good Thanksgiving and hope a very Merry Christmas is coming on!
