So I had mentioned earlier in the year about starting some hexagon - quilt as you go blocks (project?) starting in November. Well, November 1st happened and I came down with a cold or flu (still not sure what it was but it hung on!) and things got delayed. Sorry about that! I did make a little Christmas candle mat which has been out with my 3 wick on it since it got finished. I'll have to learn that ladder stitch that Diann is using to connect hers.
I never did hook up with previous years one a day... still love that circle one... so I am thinking I will make one hexagon a day following the RSC colors. Angela has mentioned that pink is the color for January. I might have grabbed a few pinks to cut yesterday before taking Aidan to guitar. I still need to cut my batting (now you know what to do with all those cast offs that are too small to stitch together to make more batting!) and backing fabrics. I am not sure what I will do for backing yet, so it will be a surprise to everyone! It might be scrappy, it might be from one color set with a few colors thrown in..... we will see what I find when I go play in the sewing room today!
Right now, I am thinking I will make them all and then put them together so all the colors are scattered around. But... who know's what I will be thinking towards the end of the year!
For today - now that the pantry is cleaned out and Emily organized, I can work on catching up with the Grassy Creek mystery and get clue #4 done and hopefully start on clue #5. Kids will be off to Grandma's at some point today and Greg has to work this evening so that should give me lots of sewing time. I figured you all would require proof. There was no before photo. Lets just say after getting his coffee, hubby stood in front of the door looking at it. I asked what he was looking for,' nothing, it just really looks good. Emily did a great job organizing'. Can you tell which of us Emily takes after? It's not me in this department!
