For tomorrow that is!

It's been awhile since I have posted anything! It is amazing how quickly time passes.

There have been numerous upheavals, downward spirals, great challenges, and wonderful happenings since I last posted . . . too numerous to post now! So I will begin at the present!

This time of year there are a lot of graduations happening all over the nation. In our family I can think of two immediate family graduations, both of them female and both of them from college.

Congratulations Ladies!  We need more women to continue to get a higher education diploma!

Before I get on my soap box, I will start with my status on my quilting.

I have been continually working on my 1 inch hexie quilt.  Since this project only comes out when I travel in the car or train, it is still far from completion.

Once I started the one inch hexie quilt, I fell in love with the whole process and have started a 3/4" Hexie dresser scarf or table runner. I haven't decided which way it will go until I how see the completed project looks. I am not using a pattern just throwing them together.  Thus the wait and see attitude!  I like the one inch hexies for my bed quilt, but I like the more delicate look of the 3/4" hexie size for the table or dresser.

I am using Freezer Paper Hexies for both projects. Freezer paper is so much easier than any other method. It cuts down on basting and removing basting and as such cuts the time needed to complete the project. This project comes out whenever I am not working on the sewing machine or hand quilting other quilts.  So hopefully I will have this project done by the end of summer!

I have added a new page to my blog with some of the items that I sell on my website.  The 3/4" Freezer Paper Hexie is the first item I have listed because it is on auction on Ebay.  But, I also sell it on my website. I also sell 1" and 2" hexies on my website and other freezer paper shapes. Take a look . . .

If you are not sure about Freezer Paper and do not want to commit to buying a bunch of hexies that you will never use, please email me and I will send you a sampler to try out.  You will receive 3 pieces of each size that I sell on my website, 3/4", 1" and 2" and an instruction sheet to help you get acquainted with the freezer paper method -- at no cost to you!

Well I guess that's it for now .... Happy Quilting!
