It appears I have a new nickname....'enabler'! Thanks Julierose =) Happy to pull others down the rabbit hole with me.

 Julierose and Chris will be joining in making some quilt as you go hexagons sometime in November. You are welcome to join us if you want. You can read about this project here from yesterdays post. It appeared no one stopped me and instead encouraged me to start another project! Now who really is the enabler here? My thought process is I should be able to finish off one or two of my RSC quilts by then so I can start something new. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! =)

I did get my 7th Endless Diamond block completed last night. My join at the V is a little off, but it fits at the end and I won't see it in the finished quilt so it stays! I need to cut out a set of whites to go with the colored parts already cut out for block 8. 

I also spread out the Easy Breezy Leader and Enders that I have been stitching around other things. I need to prep some more.... and find the missing last row of once that I was working on last week. It is somewhere near the sewing machine I am sure.

The new additions to the house. Aidan's chickens all think they are parrots and immediately hop to your shoulder. His older one Lily (emily renamed his!) does and this one Maple does.

I believe this one is mine that I named Poppy. Emily wanted a 'flower' theme and yes, since Lily is a flower in the first batch we let Maple in as a name. They do have pretty leaves in the fall after all.

The sleep in the weirdest ways! Rose, Myrtle and Poppy.

 Maple and Myrtle are Barred Rocks - A Plymouth Rock variety that will be the black and white striped and lay medium brown eggs.  Rose and Poppy are Easter Eggers and will have eggs that are colorful - either blue or greenish. I think the Sexlink Chickens we got earlier will lay large brown eggs. We will find out on those in a couple of months! That's my Friday update from 'the farm!'.

I'll watch your hexagons grow but not join in LOL - too much going on in this sewing room already!

Well, I didn't see your post or the video until today, but that looks like fun! If I can get the ruler set, I'll join in. Were you thinking of hand-stitching these? That would probably be what I would do - my top stitching is never very good... :) Love seeing the new chicks - we city folks have to get our farm fix somehow!

You know by November I may just join in! Watched the video - neat project. I have templates that will probably work and then cost the back out 1" larger. Interesting! Will look forward to the project!
