Design Wall Monday - 5/23/16

Instead of moping 100% this weekend I just dug right into my hexies Thursday/Friday evenings and half of Saturday.

My fav fabric of the 5 is bottom left.
The 2 bottom fabrics I just got in Cobleskill.

And what better project to work on while moping? Why Salt & Pepper, of course!! Read about how the project started here.

Eventually I got tired of working on the stars and moved my sorry butt to the Quilt Lab, looking for something "different" to work on. I quickly remembered from my recent trunk show that I told everyone of my Rose Star project. It's become my camping only project. I had no actual finished project in mind when I started it - I just had 12 or so coordinated FQs and I wanted to make as many blocks as I could. I decided that I would finish fussy cutting the parts so I would be prepared for the 3 camping trips I am planning on this summer. This will give me 23 blocks - a weird number but it will work out perfectly for a layout that I found.

I had meant to bring the neutral bits to work to stitch during lunches this week but managed to leave it at home. Boo! Hiss!

For the rest of Saturday I worked on The Bathroom Floor but didn't take any pictures.

You'll be glad I didn't take pictures of what I did on Sunday - spending an hour or so in each room of the house; cleaning, putting away and purging. We won't get into the psychology of that project but the mutlitple bags in the garbage can and windows open to let in the sunshine and fresh air helped lift my mood in this big, old, "empty" house where the  remaining feline wants to spend his time outside...

HeLP for Hexie-aholics - 5/17/16

This was not the HeLP post I had planned on since I've been worrying over a sick kitty today, (including running home at lunch for a quick check in) and not taking pictures.

These were my pieced hexies after a Sunday of "doing nothing" while planted on the couch with a (seemingly well) kitty. Since then I've added almost all the grey hexies around the blue echo rosette on the right and I've finished the blue buzzsaw block on the left, added the green "leaves" and started on the gray.

Please feel free to link up any English Paper Piecing project of any shape or vintage and let me know if you need help linking.
