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.

  1. I do not have a green thumb, but I do admire those who can do things like force a bulb. ;)
    Since I just subscribed tonight I haven't started Odyssey yet, but I will. I love it.
