A Little Slow Stitching

I am trying to get a little slow stitching done before Glorious Gardens meets again next Saturday. (Go on over and see what everyone else is up to here.)

 I have missed the past couple of months and have fallen behind on my goal to get all 92 hexagons done by the end of the year. That will not happen now, but I would like to finish 10 more before next weekend. A couple a day should easily get it done. I’ve got seven cut out, so I need to get three more cut. And I finished a couple yesterday, so 8 to go. These fabrics are so out of the box for me, but I have thoroughly enjoyed working with them.

Reverting back to my more traditional side, I finished off this top and got the backing and binding prepped, so it is all ready to go off for quilting. The pattern, Bricks and Stepping Stones, is a free pattern from Bonnie Hunter 

This was quick and easy...and I love the way it turned out. Everything came from scrap and stash....I even had a batting the right size!

One of the many reasons I love this cooler weather ..

Time for a big pot of greens and some piping hot cornbread....YUM!!!

Got to love this cute cheerleader😍😍

We celebrated Matt’s birthday here this week..

Words of wisdom ...really need to post this in a very visible place in my home.

Take Care,


  1. I made Bricks and Stepping Stones too. Usually I choose a design that is more challenging. But this one was fast, fun and easy - a nice change. I just can't decide how to quilt it. Do you know how you are going to quilt yours?

  2. Love your bricks and stones! I may have to stitch the words of wisdom so very very true.

  3. So glad you were able to get a little bit done despite all of your busy-ness! I'm way behind on everything this month.

  4. Pretty hexies. I made a Bricks and Stepping Stones quilt a few years ago and agree it was quick and easy to do.

  5. I didn't realize that you were meeting with a group making the hexagon blocks. Pushes you forward!

  6. Love the fabrics you are putting together for your hexies! Congrats on your finish--are you going to do Bonnie's new mystery? I'm trying to resist, but seeing all the cute 9 patches is tempting me.

  7. That is the cutest cheerleader ever!
    Continued prayers for Rob and all who love him.
