The past few evenings I've been working on hexies. These are stitched to the papers. I'm making these to trade with friends so I'm using the prescribed method. It is very easy and mindless to stitch these while watching tv -- very relaxing.
But really, I think from now on I'll use Inklingo, where the first stitches you take are stitching the hexies together, eliminating the need for the paper pieces.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! I have a Stashbusters group at the LQS, as well as a First Communion for my Grandson, Devon.

After making the SBS block yesterday, I whipped up two pillowcases for my guild. They have the kits ready take and make. The pillowcases go to kids in the local hospitals. It's a quick and easy way to pay it forward and make a difference.
There's a tut on my blog for how I make them -- the rolled way -- all seams enclosed -- super easy.

Other things I've been working on are secret so can't share yet.

You might remember a few months back, when I made a few blocks for the Hurricane Sandy Relief Quilt Effort, organized by Erin Hutchinson. When I mailed the blocks off to Erin, I thought that was the end of it.
I was surprised to get this postcard in the mail today. It's a thank you for participating. In the photo is a woman wrapped in one of the quilts holding a thank you sign. What a nice surprise!
Erin was surprised to receive blocks from over 200 quilters. To date over 35 quilts have been delivered, and there are over 10 more in various stages of completion.
Here is a link to Erin's blog:
