Back to the real world

It has been a great weekend, but tomorrow is back to the real world..........and it is going to be a busy week.

Got started on hexies this w/e.  Saw so many cute ones on the blogs, that I just couldn't resist.  Went by the LQS and picked up a few fat quarters, then I remembered that packed away in one of our upstairs closets just might be some more 30's prints.  Sure enough, they were there, so I have plenty to work on and even an idea as to how I will use them.  Fun!  Not a great photo, but you get the idea.

This is a rug that I just finished binding a few weeks ago.  It was started in a class with Cynthia Norwood and I finished it up this year, binding it just in time for the rug show at Caraway.  I used all textures and wide cuts in it.  The pattern is Mighty Oak by Sally Kallin.  I think it will look great on my table this Fall.  The small photo is the whole runner, the large is a closeup of one corner.

Next is our it was

what we are using now

and finally where we are going with the new one.  Hopefully it will be finished SOON!!!
That is about it for tonight. 

Take care,
