686 hexies

Okay, its been a while...and wow have I been busy.  I have found some time to work on a few things though. ;)



I started thinking the other day that I might actually get some hexagon flowers finished if I had some basted.  SO, last Friday I started basting and basting and basting.  When I reached 686 hexies I realized that would equal 98 more flowers and that is more than I need.  So, I'll either make the quilt a bit larger, or I'll make a pillow or two.  Tonight is the FNSI so maybe, just maybe there will be some finished flowers tomorrow! :)


Then I thought I should get my blocks done for the Christmas Stitchalong.  I finished the bear yesterday and got up early this morning and finished the Christmas tree.  I guess you could actually say I'm ahead of the game (I should mark this on the calendar because it is about the first time in my life that I am able to say that). 


And last, but not least I finished the Mystery Mondays clue for this week.  I have no idea if this is how this will end up, but it is definitely fun to work on.

I am going to link with Whoop! Whoop! Fridays this week, and tonight the Friday Night Sew In.  Now, what to work on. :)  Thanks so much for stopping by...Happy Stitching!  --Kristen

Love all those basted hexies. I am working on my little ones at the moment as well as starting the Christmas SAL that you are doing. I have all mine traced out and ready to start stitching too.

Oh, my goodness - look at those hexies! Love the colors, too! Great stitcheries - I love this pattern and is my focus piece for decorating this year. Very pretty block.
