Merry Christmas to ALL!


This was last night - wind shear warning! Hubby, my mother, and I (along with 3 dogs!) cowered in an interior closet until the weather scare was over. No damage here, but prayers go out to those in Mississippi and Georgia who were not so lucky.


Today was our family Christmas celebration - we had nine for lunch. This is the dessert table - oh my! I had a crock pot full of hot chocolate with homemade marshmallows, and lots of optional additions (cinnamon, peppermint sticks, whipped cream, etc.) Yes, we did eat real food before the desserts and hot chocolate. A good time was had by all!


Here are the kids in front of the trees. Left to right:  Daughter 1, son-in-law (Daughter's 1's hubby), Daughter 2. So proud of all three of them!

I've been so busy getting ready for today that I haven't had much time for hexies. Sad face…

But Christmas Day will be for relaxing. We'll be eating leftovers and watching movies. (And I'll be making hexies! I'm working on the February Hexie BOM and the progressive quilt that will be patterned in the magazine.

Now for some HEXIE LOVE news…
I'm still set to release the first issue in January, but it will not be on January 1. The magazine software company that I'm working with will not have customer service available over the holidays. I'm hesitant to release it until I know I can get help if I need it. Hopefully the release will be without incident, but just in case there's a snafu or two, I want to be sure I can quickly get it resolved!

So please be patient until the second week of January! I promise it's coming!!!!

But there will be something to look forward to on January 1 - The 2015 Hexie Block of the Month! Have you picked out your background yet? Remember I'll be using 3/4" hexies for this one.

From my family to yours, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Hexie love to all and to all a good night!
