Design Wall Monday, Hexagons, and The Creamer

It's time again for Design Wall Monday...These weeks sure fly, and I'm still working on a lot of the same projects.  We went for a treacherous ride yesterday in white out conditions (lots of snow) so in order to not have a heart attack (literally) I worked on some hexagons while trying to see where the side of the road ended and the ditch started for my husband.  I think I'm going to stay home for a while (at least until next Friday when I get to go to a class with Terry Atkinson!!!)

Here are 12 more...that brings the total up to 131.  Only 9 more to go...oh I can see the end of this...and then I can start doing the embroidery hexagons that go in between the blocks.  You know when you get this close you actually start thinking about staying up just to see if you can finish them, and then you remember you have the ski trip tomorrow that was canceled from last week, you work the late shift, and it would be best to get at least a little sleep.

And now we have the creamer.  These blocks have combined the templates and the applique...yeah, I'm ready to go back to straight piecing some half-square triangles, squares, and mindless chain piecing. I bet it will be fun looking back at them, right now let's just say I'm glad it is done.  This is a 6 x 3-1/2 inch block and is number 65 of 366.

I'm linking today with Made by You Monday, Manic Monday, and Design Wall Monday.  I love seeing what everyone is working on as there are so many creative and talented people out there.  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen

I just finished writing a post saying the same thing that the week's are flying by! I love your hexies, I can't wait to see them put together. And your creamer block is beautiful too.
