Hexies and Hyacinths
I finished another birthday block yesterday - yes, a hexie flower for one of my very good friends. She's making a Grandmother's Flower Garden from Kaffe Fassett fabric and batiks - yummy! She doesn't baste through the paper, so this was a bit different for me. But it worked out nicely! Now this goes into my shoe box of birthday blocks - maybe I'll tackle another one today.
A few weeks before Christmas, I began forcing a hyacinth bulb. Hubby was planting some in the yard and I absconded with one. Look at those roots!
Yesterday I began to get the first peep at blooms! Pretty! I love this little vase because it's made for a bulb to sit in the top - wish a had a few more of them.
Yesterday was so productive! I did ALL the hexie appliqué on the latest section of Odyssey (the progressive quilt from Hexie Love). So excited!
Today I MUST spend time on computer work and paperwork. (I'd rather be sewing!) But it's part of the job. Must. Do. It.
