On the sewing front all I have to show for myself this week are hexies. They're so convenient to get out and work on. I even got a cute little bag this week at Target to keep my little hexie kit together, and it fits into my purse so its easy to grab and go. I heart Target. I'll take it over Walmart any day.

And with my little kit so handy I've been able to pop out more of these
Lately I've been drooling over a quilt called Swan Lake that a very talented lady over at Buddy and Me has been working on. When I did a little research via the internet I saw that it was a version of an antique Australian quilt called Dancing Dollies. I started looking for the pattern, but couldn't find anything until I came across one on Ebay, but the auction had already ended =( I contacted the seller (who I later found out wrote replica pattern) and she had more (yay!!) So, when the mail arrived today I was in for a treat. My Dancing Dollies pattern book arrived!! I know that it's waaaaaaaay beyond my skill level right now, but someday I'll definitely be making this quilt.
Steven always gets to the mail before me and he was so funny, "Um, honey... why do you have mail from AUSTRALIA?!" We don't get out much. lol
