RSC in aqua

A nice Friday all to myself. Kids were at their last day of STEM camp - which they absolutely loved! I worked my 20 hours M-th this week so finally got a day off with no one in the house. I got a lot of things prepped (backing made, quilt pinned, applique 1857 blocks prepped, teal scraps pulled and pressed) and a few stitches were added. This was the only thing in aqua and bright green that applied to the RSC Challenge.

I was out of hand work earlier this week so I dug into the bucket next to the recliner and found some pink hexagons all prepped. I pulled some teal and bright green out today and prepped and made a few more flowers while watching a few episodes of Downtown Abby. That led me to pull out this UFO from the drawer and see where I was and why it ended up in the drawer as a UFO. Well, first I was wondering if I should make these into diamonds since I had 2 more pink hexagons ready for each of the flowers I had made..... that would have been adding a new project. No, I will not start anything new until something gets finished. Closer examination of the little quilt explained why it landed in the UFO pile. See last last (un)stitched row? yup, somehow it was not right so I pulled out my hand stitching and will see what the issue was. I think I started the row one hexagon off. I guess it is going to be a little bigger since I made some more flowers. We will see how this one turns out. I see it as a wall hanging maybe? We shall see. Oh, for those wondering each hexagon side is 1 inch.


Linking up on Saturday morning with The RSC Challenge.

  1. Hexies are super, they are always in the nearest drawer ready to be joined to a a body. They come with you everywhere, and will always be a never ending story.
