It is Hexie Wednesday--
and I have started a new hexie quilt--
this one is because I am sooo jealous of some of you out there that have been doing beautiful 'fussy' cut hexies --
while I kept working with the same fabric line for the last 2 years--
so here goes--
Have more cats for future ones too--
the cats came from my stash!!!!
so that is 4 == one for each week this year so far!!
Ok--today was also a 'frustration' kind of day--
this is the pattern that I had hoped to have started and finished the top for--today!!!
so many times I have wanted to do the rest of them--
so here is #2--
piece of cake right???
not today and not for me today--
here is the first -- attempt--
Well--it is 5" square instead of 4 1/2"--
so after lunch it was back into the sewing room--
I did the center wrong--
at first I was going to just do all 4 of them this way--
but once I took a moment and looked at the pattern and the #1 block--
I do like that design better for this quilt--
I do have enough pieces cut for 3 of the right blocks--I hope!!!
Luckily I had only cut the fabric for one block at a time to begin with!!
It was getting to be late afternoon at this point and I heard my rocking chair calling my name--
so made meself a cup of hot tea and got into the rocker to work on the wool project--
Can't say that that was smooth sailing either----
Does this look better?????
and I had some help this afternoon on this one--
a big big cat tail was swishing back and forth in front of my face while I am trying to stitch--
but she was keeping my lap warm--sooooo??????
These are my stories for today/tonight!!!
Do keep warm or cool where you are at --
and keep stitching!!!!!
Hugs, Di and miss gracie
