HeLP for Hexie-aholics - 6/17/19

Remember how I droned on and on with myself about which day was really the 9 month deadline for getting the top for Mr Serious done? Well, in the end, I let technology make the decision and I almost missed getting out of making the decision. LOL.

I have a great app on my iPhone called "Reminder" and it will count down to any deadline you give it. I use it for everything such as vacations, our hexie club quilt exhibit install date and it even automatically adds birthdays and holidays.

Once the event passes, it will also count the number of days since the event passed. I finally remembered to check the count "up" on the Sunday of my conference and lo and behold it was the end of my 9 months!!!

We were stitching outside on the patio of our hotel room so I immediately ran to the beach to take some photos, knowing there wasn't much light left at 8:45pm.


White sand beaches don't make for great photos but I was so happy to see it as "one" piece I didn't really care. I had just a few more stitches to finish the right hand side but it's still in 2 pieces as I decided to add one more row of brown across the bottom and thought it would be easier in 2 pieces.


It's amazing how close it is to the photo and my original design . I know it should be but still...


This, however, was the money shot because who can resist a sunset in the ADK mountains? Don't forget that greyish mountain in the middle (Whiteface) as that will appear on one of my other trip reports later this week.

And now it's your turn - what EPP projects do you have to share??!!

Thursday Weather Report #108 - 6/13/19

Ever go on a trip and when you rush back into your daily schedule everything is all discombobulated? Well, that's me today! Left all my notes and things to share at home.

I went to my last work conference of the year earlier this week. It was 4 days, nearly 700 miles round trip and a lot of fun in my beloved Adirondack Mountains. That's right, I went to a conference in Lake Placid! Woohoo!

Remember the "new" car I picked up less than 3 weeks ago? I've already put over 1,000 miles on Elvis (what else do you call a Blue Velvet Metallic car?). I'm pretty sure I've worked out any kinks and gotten the seats and buttons all situated...

This week's trip included a little recon for my summer vacay trip to a different campground and we did a touch of mountain "climbing". I'm playing catch up today at work so I'll just share this one photo today since I was able to get quite a bit of work done on my weather quilt. Lots more photos to share another day of Lake Placid, Whiteface Mt, the rest of the temp quilt and Mr Serious.
