Slacker

Hummingbird Hexie No2

Been feeling a bit like a slacker lately when it comes to working on this blog, but I am getting closer to being able to focus on it. Right now I’m working on a big website overhaul for our business site – I like to keep it updated, and the new version of Dreamweaver I’m working on is pretty sweet… at least so far. We’ll see how well it goes when I test links and usability.

In the meantime, I started some Cannabis Pillows – I have two tops made and the backs are cut, zippers in house, all I have to do is sew them up!

I think they’ll be pretty sweet when I get them finished up. The other project is my Hummingbird #2 Quilt – I’m appliquéing the bird down now, I’m about halfway done. For this one, I’m going to add some flowers so the bird can be in the garden!

I’m still working on the placement of the flowers. I’m going to sew the whole bird down first then I’ll work on the flowers. They are so cute!

What are you working on this month?

Contemplation

Hexie Hummingbird Pieced

I recently finished piecing my Hexie Hummingbird together! It went so fast… not adding a full hexie background certainly helps in the time department.  However, now I’m faced with a big decision: what to use as a background fabric?

This decision has taken days – I want to only use what’s in my stash, and I don’t have many pieces large enough (1 yard) to use. So I spent some time in contemplation, and I’ve settled on a great piece that looks a little magical to me. I’ll be sharing soon…

In the meantime, I’m working on a binding for a quilt that I’ll have finished for our next PMQG meeting, which is also part of the PNWMQG Meetup! I’m really happy there is one event where I can meet new quilty friends that is free. Will you be coming to town? Wanna meet up? Hit me! I don’t get to travel much anymore, and I love meeting new friends and talking quilts.
