Yesterday I did ATTACK boxes. I unpacked and unpacked and..... well, you get the idea. In the afternoon, I decided I deserved to sit down at the sewing machine. So I did!
Remember those triangles I cut out last week? I cut more and played with them on the wall until they became this. Yes, I still have the Hexie Fever - do you see the big hexie in the middle? Woo hoo!
I sewed one of these sections together and I'm part way through another one. More to come today.
This morning I unpacked two more boxes, then counted how many are left. There are 8 boxes to go in the upstairs! I'm going to shoot for 3 per day. There are several more boxes in the garage that need attention, too.
For those of you who want to know exactly what the thing-a-ma-jig is that I'm using to organize my Accuquilt dies, this is it. My daughter uses one to store her Pyrex baking dishes. The nice thing about it is that it is easily adjustable for different widths of objects. And it's very sturdy. No, I'm not sponsored by Ikea; I just love so many things they have.
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.
