Ain't we got snow!
And ice (plenty of it) and still no electricity! Cold temperatures continue and everything is still covered in ice. Added to it is a fresh dumping of fluffy snow. As the temperature goes up a little the snow will get heavy and I'm sure more trees will come down so that could mean the power outage will continue!
I've been busy working on my 2014 Quilt Along. What could this be? I do love hexagons so you know the project will include some hexagon ideas! They are 1/2" hexagons and although they are small they are easy to manage and the sew up quickly! I've had to use my seam ripper that my brother made for me for Christmas. You can also see one of the hardcover needle books I made. I have been putting it to good use! I made it from a free pattern from The Studiolo! I plan to make some more because they are fast, fun and oh so pretty!
It isn't just me working on hexagons during the power outage. Mom has been making a pile of her own! You can see her seam ripper is closed up - guess she is not as mistake prone as me! She doesn't know what she will do with all of these hexagons but it doesn't matter! It's nice to have busy hands and eventually she will have an idea and the hexagons will be ready to be used!
Another short post but with any luck the power will be back on soon and my sewing life will get back to normal. The sky just turned a bright blue so hopefully better days are on their way.
Until I post again, happy sewing!

Happy sewing-nice time sewing with your Mom though-sure hope your power stays on-hugsReplyDelete
Thanks Kathy! We've had no more power interruptions at my house so we are toasty warm and enjoying our sewing time!Delete
So nice you have each other at this time. It is sad that there are so many still without electricity in Toronto. But it is wonderful that the two of you are having fun with hexies. I can't believe how many you have made. Hugs BunnyReplyDelete
Hi Bunny - I believe that my part of Toronto was the hardest hit and there are still thousands of households without power. Mom and I've have had a great time sewing and Mom took a Craftsy class yesterday so she is itching to get home and try out what she learned! As for the hexies, they are addictive and you can't make just one!Delete
