Plans and hexies

Yesterday I had a plan. I was going right home after work and getting my 2012 UFO list together for Judy's challenge. It was an easy no-fail kinda plan.

Instead...I spent some time unsubbing from some blogs and email lists. I was a little on the brutal side but it's the end of the year and it's time to do a little house cleaning. I've even been cleaning out craft drawers but that is another post. It was liberating to get rid of the blogs that I'm not super vested in and if I delete one that I probably shouldn't have I feel confident I'll run across it again during a linky box or on someone else's blog. If I used to comment on your blog and disappeared please let me know that I probably deleted you by mistake.

I heated up some yummy leftover tomato soup (Pioneer Woman recipe which I can't seem to find online - lemme know if you want the recipe) and a cheese quesadilla for dinner and spent the rest of the night watching Lost Season 3 while I worked on hexies:

See the orange diamond on the top right that is almost encircled with black sashing? The orange diamond is already attached to the diamond on either side of it and as soon as I get the black sashing completed on those two diamonds I can attach the threesome to the center. I was running out of papers so I needed to start getting some of this round together. This round will take 18 diamonds and I have 9 done and 1 more started. Once I get this row done I will finally have to make a decision as to what I want to do with the completed project as each row will take progressively longer and I want this done to enter in the county fair next August.

This is gorgeous -- I like how it's going out in a circle. One more row around? It really is a beautiful piece -- I see a blue ribbon in its future! :)

I really love this project! It is a beauty!
Okay, I'll be watching to see if you still comment on my blog--if I get around to another posting. : )

Wow ! It's looking great.
And as I have said before I love the black.
