Just a Note

I have been taking a little break so I could recover from a case of food poisoning. Am much better now and will start regular posting again sometime this week.

Second Block in Fusion Along

I have completed the second block in the coverlet I am making for Jazmine. These go pretty quick once you have them put together and the blanket stitch completed on them.
Until next time,

Fushion Along

Here is my stack of "Spirit" all sewn together and waiting for me to add the crocheted part. I only used one charm pack for this as Jazmine is only 16 months and she loves to tote a blanket around with her.
Until next time,

More Hexi Flowers

I now have five finished flowers to show for the hexi mf quilt along. This is going fast as these hexi's are big. They come together quickly as well. This is my summer take along project, but I wanted to see what they were going to look like. I absolutely love them and will be working on them steady until I get it finished. Below is a pic of the hexi that I am trying to make into a square. I really love this pattern,but so far I have not figured out how to turn it into a square so that the sides will be even when put together.
Until next time,

Fusion Crochet Along

The first block of my fusion throw. This I think will be for Jazmine when finished. I tested this one block before committing my whole charm pack of "Spirit" to the project. It came together rather quickly and will make a nice light throw. There is no batting inside the charm squares although some are putting batting in theirs. I just chose not to do so. I have stalled out on my hexi throw for myself and may decide to change it as well. I am trying to come up with a way to turn the hexi into a square block so that the sides will be even when I put them together. So far no luck and I have frogged my sample block to death it seems. Hopefully, I can figure out a way soon to do it that will look nice. I am open to suggestions if you have any.
Until next time,

Happy 4th of JULY!

 Happy 4th of JULY everyone! Trying to stay cool here as it is really hot. Not even a breeze to help cool things off. The furbabies are trying to stay cool as well with a little swim.
Riddick swimming
 Whizzer coming out of the pool
 Whizzer getting ready to get in the pool
Whizzer is my add/adhd sweet boy! He is always running and never just walks. He was in and out of the pool like a shot. Then he would run around in the yard and come back up the steps and get in again. Riddick being my chubsy ubsy boy could not get up the ladder steps on his own. He does not really like the water, but will swim if I or B is in the water. And you have to be right there as he starts to sink because his hind quarters start going down due to his chubbiness! So we have to make sure we are right there with a hand under him. Of course on the other end we have to watch Whizzer with the pool now that he knows he can get into the water. Hope you are having a great 4th. Be safe this holiday and don't drink and drive.

Don't forget to comment on the post below to enter my blogversary giveaway if you have not already done so. Drawing ends midnight on Friday!

Yesterday was my Blogversary and I forgot about it! How could I have managed to forget when I started blogging, which was five years ago on July 2. I had planned on having a giveaway for it as well. I may have missed yesterday but, I can still have a celebration as it is still July! So if you want to be entered into the draw leave a comment on this post only. One single comment, no hoops, jumps, contortions of any kind. Just a simple comment and you will be entered into the drawing. I will draw the winners name Saturday July 7th. That means you have until midnight on Friday to enter.

Hexi MF Flower

I have been basting hexies all day and thought I would make at least one flower to see how they will look. These make up really big and this should go pretty fast once I start putting them all together. I love the way this one turned out. Off to finish basting my hexies.
Until next time,

Lots of Prepping Going On

A whole lot of prepping going on in hexi land! I am so excited about this project. Now back to prepping so I can get some of these beautiful flowers made.
Until next time,

I am trying to decide which yellow I want to use for the center of the flowers. I am leaning towards the brighter yellow with the print flower which really looks good next to all the bright happy colors in this quilt. Will think about it over the weekend.
Until next time,
