Just one more starflower hexie to put together and I will have enough large hexies to make a quilt for my bed. Once that block is finished I’ll fill in the missing triangles where rows come together and get the rows all stitched together. I have a bunch more starflower blocks (not turned into hexie) to use for some other project (wallhanging, table mat, tree skirt (actually I do think I’m going to use this idea for my tree skirt out of the Christmas ornament fabric I previously bought) or maybe another quilt – who knows.
It’s a dreary gray holiday day here but great for a sewing day. I had originally planned to do some closet cleaning among other chores this weekend – hmmm… don’t think that will be happening tho I really do need to start straightening the sewing room back up since I’m sewing in a different room due to lack of clear table space in the sewing room) 🙂 But first, on to that last block after I make some lemon bars to take into the office tomorrow.
And did you know that today (Labor Day) you can watch free classes all day on Craftsy?? No affiliation other than I have enjoyed and learned much from Craftsy classes. I started watching (well listening mostly) earlier this morning as I was sewing with some free motion quilting playing on the computer in the background, then switched to a King Arthur flour bread baking class, and now am watching a knitting class – stranded, braids, steeks, etc. It’s a great way to preview a class that you were thinking of buying and see if you really want to purchase it and a great way to sample various teachers techniques and styles.
