A Tiny Break

Today I took a tiny break from my organizing and did a little slow stitching.
This hexagon was the result.
This is Sharon, one of the Glorious Hexagons from Month Three.

On the organizing front, I have finished five bins. I have pressed and folded everything greater than 1/8 yd. and cut up the rest. Neatly folded and sorted, I pared down to four bins. Next I am doing the Reproductions. Already, my 2 1/2" strip drawer is overflowing. I'd better be looking for a pattern.

A couple of days short of two weeks post heart transplant, friend Dave is out of ICU, all tubes and lines out. I think he looks great.

Christi and Rob celebrated 28 years as a couple...they started dating in HS.

Sometimes I am pretty sure I am the only one who cares, but it keeps me sane.
Take Care,


  1. Lots of reasons to celebrate in this post. I love your hexagon.

  2. Your kaleidoscope style center is right on!

  3. Good for you, stopping to stitch a minute. I'm sure you can finish organizing by the end of summer. Farmer's daughter block (country threads books) is a great one for 2-1/2" pieces.

  4. A gorgeous hexagon! Keep on making beautiful things... adding beauty to this world is a noble calling!

  5. Wow! That is absolutely gorgeous and so well placed.

  6. I'm glad everything went well for your friend Dave! Hugs,

  7. Your friend Dave is making an incredible recovery. Hooray for him.
    I'm so happy Christi and Rob got to celebrate another anniversary!!!
    The hexagon is amazing.
    Hugs :)

  8. What an uplifting post. Your hexagon is absolutely beautiful. Wishing your friend continuing improved health. Hubby and I also met in high school 38 years ago.

  9. I love your Glorious Hexagon! Love your color play!

  10. I am so very glad I found your blog today.
    It was meant to be. I was going to give up my sewing.
    But you are right with your post.
    I just want to make beautiful things even if no one cares.
    I am going to sew because I care.
    Thank you for your post.
