Hexie Helper


Prince was my hexie helper yesterday - that's the September BOM. He the old man - almost 15 and deaf, but still full of energy and zest for life. Lovely gray, distinguished face! This block WILL be finished TODAY!

Another item I accomplished yesterday: I tidied my sewing cart! It was such a mess! It took almost an hour to do this - well worth the effort!

I'm planning on spending some time in the studio today - more machine appliqué anyone? I'm getting addicted to this...  And later I just might pull out my necktie project.

Okay, so here's a question for you:

How many projects do you have going at one time?

I have a friend who works on only one project at a time. She finishes it all the way, including quilting and binding. And then, and only then, does she start something new. I am just the opposite! I'm working on this year's BOM, next year's BOM, the necktie project, and soon I'll be starting next year's progressive quilt for Hexie Love. Almost forgot about the wedding quilt! And this doesn't include all my UFO's! I do think it's time to attack another UFO - I've only finished two of them so far this year. I'll put that on my list for today - to decide which UFO is up next.

  1. My Mom when she was alive made fabulous quilts but she did the same only bought fabric for one project at a time and made the quilt start to finish before planning the next. I am totally the opposite I have something on the loom, spinning going on, quilt ufo's to finish, and working on at least quilt, throw in some hand dye projects, a little rug hooking-never boring here lol

  3. Current-current projects or are UFOs included? I have actually finished a baby quilt in the past month, bound a king size quilt in the past two weeks, hand quilted on a lap quilt that has to be finished in the next couple of weeks, and worked on a hexie project made from squares that were gifted to me. Too many projects? Probably!

  4. I have Numerous projects in various stages of completion all the time. Sometimes I will have 3-4 all of a sudden reach their finish line- that's always so exciting to suddenly have that many done in one day!
    My current hand/ travel project is the millefiore sew along, I have 3 round robins, 2 need one more border, the third is ready to quilt. I have 3 bom's ( oops, make that 4, almost forgot the wool one from prairie point junction) I'm have 2 quilts sketched on graph paper and fabrics cut. I have 3 table runners ready to back & quilt ( looks like I need a dedicated quilting day!) At least half a dozen UFO's I really should work on....gosh, making a list really makes me feel I need to not be here- I should be in the sewing room!

  6. I get asked this but I don't count so I just say "lots"! I figure sewing makes me feel good so even if a project takes a very long time to be finished (or it never gets finished) I still benefited from the creative process!
