Thursday’s Rambles ~ 1 March 2012

Some fabrics I pulled out of my stash for a 60×60 quilt someone wants me to make them. Just has to be blue and grey with the state of Nevada somewhere on it. I have a design in mind. 🙂 After seeing them in the picture, I’m not sure about the two in the middle of the pack. I’ll have to go pick up a few FQ’s from Windy Moon.

A small project I’m working on using Lauren & Jessi Jung’s Flora fabric…using English paper piecing hexies.

Saw this on the way to work…looks like someone was drunk and didn’t realize that you can’t barrel through two work buildings and go down the hill to the road.

Today is windy with more snow on the way…just like yesterday.

Last Saturday after driving up to Pyramid Lake we came back home via Wadsworth to 80…just before Reno is Lockwood where we spied a new park. They’ve re-dug the riverbed in that area, un-doing the damage by the Corp of Engineers so many years ago…now the Truckee River flows through lots of meanders. The fishies are a lot happier too.

We rented a great movie the other night. The Way, an Emilio Estevez movie staring his dad, Martin Sheen. Highly recommend it.

Ok…I’m addicted to Hexagons

Hi…my name is Michelle, and I’m addicted to hexagons. Boy! It sure didn’t take long either! I took to hexies faster than to a Hostess Ding Dong! 🙂

I cut out 2.5″ squares of some 1930’s repo fabric that I hadn’t packed away yet, just to play around with. Wasn’t too sure I’d like making them. Not sure what I was going to make, either. Still don’t, actually. But I do know I’m going to be pulling out some of my batik scraps and play with them! I really like hand-stitching them.

The whites look a bit pink because they still have the paper hexagons in them.
