Yes, back on the hexie bandwagon! With the Olympic in full swing, I had to get my red, white, and blue on. Nice, mindless work while I watch the amazing athletes (from my recliner). At least I'm productive while I'm a couch potato!
Yesterday we had a wonderful shower. Here's my view (that's right, from the recliner!) Now look closer:
This is the first house we've owned that doesn't have gutters, so the rain just pours right off the roof. As you can see, the eaves are very deep so we don't need gutters. Yippee - no cleaning out rotten leaves from gutters!
In unpacking news, I had 8 boxes left to unpack upstairs. Thursday I unpacked 3. Friday I unpacked 3. Then I counted what was left. Should have been 2, right? Nope. FIVE left! Must have miscounted last week (or else they multiply when I'm not looking).
Today we're getting an early start on some big stuff. We're going to haul a load of garbage to the dump. And we're going to haul a large piece of furniture to our storage unit. Then we'll load my car with some donation items so I can take them to Goodwill in a few days.
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
