Hexies and A Treat!

Wow this week has really flown by!  It's been another busy one here with work and appointments and, well just life in general.  You know how it goes.  It seems like this year just started, and its already August.  It's been another hot and sweltering week here.  Yesterday the temperature was in the triple digits, and the heat index was 118 degrees.  When I saw that number on the screen I had to look again to make sure my eyes weren't deceiving me.  We had a nice little rainstorm this afternoon that cooled things down a bit for a few hours at least.

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



  1. Wow you are way ahead of me on the hexie's. I will have to find time to catch up to you somehow!?! Oh well, keep up the good work...

  2. That was sooo not Brittni..that was me. I am not sure how that happened except that she used my computer last night. lol
