I finished stitching this tangled octopus of hexies together over the weekend. Yes, there is a really cool motif hidden in the mess, which is now starched and pressed and pinned to the background fabric. This morning I'll remove the basting threads and papers. Applique will begin today! Looks like I need to line up some Netflix to watch this afternoon while I stitch.
The birthday dinner we attended Saturday night was fun! We had to drive to Birmingham - 2 hours away - but it was worth it. The birthday boy had just turned 60 and he was very surprised to see us there.
Hubby really enjoyed visiting with some former work buds. The birthday boy's son and girlfriend were in attendance from their homes in Nashville where they are both singer/songwriters. The girlfriend has a song on the radio now (Riot) being sung by Rascal Flatts. The son has a song coming out soon being sung by The Band Perry. It was fun hearing their stories of these artists and more.
Sunday I got absolutely nothing done. One of those bad headache days. But it's all gone this morning! I'll be up in the studio soon to get my UFO sewing done.
I'll also be working on the next issue of Hexie Love - it's going to be a great one! I have a wonderful book to review - it's flying it's way across the ocean to me now. And the progressive quilt - Odyssey - is progressing nicely. And there will be some really cool smaller hexie projects, too. #havingfun
