Back to Normal




Hope you had a wonderful New Year's Day - we did! I started the day by cutting the final pieces needed for En Provence. Yay! I still have to sew more parts and pieces together before I'm ready to sew a block, but that won't take long.

I really love Bonnie's finished quilt - great pattern! I had planned on using scrappy yellows, but once I saw the final quilt I decided to cut all the yellow from the same fabric - I had this in my stash already.

Today's schedule calls for machine quilting...but I don't have Bliss ready for this yet...so I'll probably work on En Provence instead.


We went out for breakfast with good friends yesterday (after I did the fabric cutting!) - LOTS of fun, and a great way to start off the year. Later in the day I did some hand work - I've made it all the way around the hexie flower! It's time to select more fabric for more hexies for this now.

I also stitched on my latest Farmer's Daughter block last night.


For dinner, our traditional Southern New Year's Day meal of black eyed peas, greens, and pork (ham).  If you're interested, the tradition is explained HERE. It was so delicious and we should have lots of happiness and wealth the coming year! Ha!

We started a new-to-us Netflix show over the last week - The Man in the High Castle. I highly recommend it - it tells the story of what might have happened had we lost WWII.

So after much thought, I think I'm getting much closer to naming the hexie quilt - I hope I'll have that for you tomorrow! I knew if I let it percolate in my mind for a bit that it would come to me. I'll also announce the ruler winners tomorrow.

Wishing you a fabulous day!

  1. Okay, on your recommendation, I'm checking out that show. (oops -title doesn't come up online or on the TV.) I simply love your hexagon in this post. I hope today is as great a day as yesterday!

  2. Oh, it's Amazon, not Netflix. =)
