Cooking, Sewing, Working, Traveling, Gardening and Pondering

Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential.

Hectic meets Manic

Seems I've been away from my blog for quite some time.  Life just got in the way.  From mid-April to the end of May, I was working on handing over my board position for the Junior League to the incoming member, then there was a a birthday in there, work, work travel, a great dinner at Osteria Mozza and Andrea Bocelli concert, more work travel, a motorcycle trip to Cripple Creek Colorado with my hubs, my hubs cousin spending a few days with us while she was in town for the Dwell On Design Show.

Sadly, my crafting has been sloooowww.  I did finish the "Spring" block of red work I travel with so I'll have to be sure to get Summer printed off and mounted on some muslin before my next trip.

Yesterday, while we were just hanging out with cousin Susan, I got a little inspired to start on some hexies.  I wanted to see how "portable" they would be for me.  Here is where I got to yesterday with them.


Here is how I work in the mornings at my desk...


What a mess...

But I love these little hexies so far.
