EXCITING NEWS!!!!



The cat is out of the bag!!!! My exciting news was announced on the BERNINA Ambassador webinar yesterday! So it's time to let you all share in the excitement.

I'm coming out with a new ruler! It will allow you to cut both your hexie papers and your fabric for hexies with a gentle curve.

AND I'm also coming out with my own line of hexie papers that are totally water soluble! And what does that mean for you? It means you never have to remove the papers! You can quilt right through them and they'll dissolve completely away in plain water. 

The water soluble papers will allow you to glue baste (with water soluble glue) if you like - you'll never have the issue of struggling to remove the glued paper - because it can all stay!

Also, because we don't have to remove the paper, we can now do our hexie stitching on the sewing machine with a decorative stitch if we want to - no worries about sewing through that paper because it doesn't have to be removed!

Of course, if you prefer you can keep on doing all your hexie sewing by hand. The ruler will work for your traditional hexie papers as well. 

I'll be sewing hexies by machine much more. You know, I'm only one person and I have my hands full designing and making projects for Hexie Love. Time has really been an issue for me in 2015, so for 2016 my samples and designs will be sewn by machine so that I can have more time to devote to the content of Hexie Love.

My new products will be available in JANUARY! And stay tuned tomorrow for a sneak peek at BLISS, made using curved hexies!!!



And now for more excited news!

My FIL was released from the hospital yesterday (after NINE days and some complications)! And that means that hubby is coming home today!!! YIPPEE! I'm cooking a special meal for him tonight and look forward to having my best friend and roomie back! 

Have a great day, y'all! Go forth and HEXIE!
