And so it goes.....

Spring always seems to be a super busy time around my house. I got some great shots of my cherry tree in bloom last week along with this busy bee!

We have had beautiful weather, they sky was perfect on this day!
Along with the beautiful weather we have been playing outside more and little guy fell while playing ball in the yard and broke his wrist. It always amazes me how well children adapt to changes in their life. He is pretty bummed he has to miss quite a few t ball games but he is still going to help out with the team! Look at that smile, I have to say he is such a great kid!
I have been busy working on my hexie quilt! Wow hand sewing is tedious work but well worth it! My plan is to have 9 of these big blocks and if all goes well it will make a 54" square quilt. Only 264 more 2" hexies to go.....
I love all of the colors together.
Here is a look at the back side.
Although I am hand stitching the hexies I am machine sewing on the borders!

Hope you are having a wonderful week! Meg

Hexies, they seem to be very popular right now and I have always been a bit intimidated by the construction of them. My Aunt gave me a few patterns a while ago and I finally pulled them out and gave it a try. Aside from my sore finger tips from all of the hand sewing, they are super easy!

Now to decide on the layout....
Here are some great tutorial if you want to give it a go!
this is more of the method I am using Hexagon Piecing
this one is perfect for machine piecing I will be trying this......
Have Fun!
