Happy Friday! A Big Shout Out to Leona!

Happy Friday! This will be short and sweet for the moment as I am needing to get to work (the one that pays my bills anyway!)

A BIG Thank you and Shout Out to Leona over at Leona's Quilting Adventures! She has a wonderful blog that I found by looking for a listing of blogland giveaways. I emailed her hoping to be added to that list for my little 'ole giveaway that I blogged about on Wednesday. Well she actually did a post on the giveaway! Wow, that is like the nicest things a blogger can do -  the response has been incredible! Please stop by her blog and say Hi! Check out her Pay It Forward page -- many worthy groups to sew for! You can check out her sewing room and the many great projects she has!

I am in the midst of answering all of your comments for the Vintage Modern giveaway, and I have made some progress on my second Hexie Block for the Craftsy BOM. I still have to take the basting threads and papers out and sew them down permanently but at least they are together and in an arrangement I like -- sometimes that decision takes the most time! It has to sit and marinate a bit for me :)  How about you? Do you find that to be true?

It is supposed to be cool (40's) and rainy here this weekend--- Perfect sewing weather!  Projects on board for the weekend: More Retro Flowers, complete my Hexie blocks, and finish April's BOM for the Generals Daughters quilt! Plus more hand sewing on binding and the smiles on Jacks Jungle Quilt -- a full plate!    Here is a quick shot of that second Hexie block!  Ok- not so short :0  Have a great day!


  1. Your April Craftsy block is looking good. Congrats too on all your new members and a successful giveaway!

    Looking forward to the Craftsy Wonky Log Cabins for May.

  2. Eu sou viciada em hexágonos e faço todos os dias a muitos anos.Os seus estão indo muito bem,gostei dessas cores.Ótimo fim de semana.

  3. I love your hexies! I have been making mine too. :) Trying to get the blocks done before April evaporates lol!


Thanks for the comment! I love hearing from you!
