It was a busy and fabulous weekend ... I'm not ready for it to be over. ;-)
Friday morning meant heading over to DD's to watch the two littles while the rest of their crew helped DSIL's parents move (a local move from a small apartment to a larger house). We watched a couple of movies and played ... I took my hexies with me for something to do while the littles napped. When I got home, DH gave me the mail, including a box full of sewing goodies! Tina at Slightly Off Quilter hosted a bloggaversary giveaway earlier this month - that I won! Look at all the loot she sent!
I've already got plans for the paper pieces and thread and am sure that I can come up with a project for those precut hexies ... and with the pens I no longer have any excuse not to label my quilts. I am still so excited that I won all that cool quilting stuff!
Saturday was a repeat of Friday ... well, except for the box of goodies in the mail. ;-)
Sunday was a kind of lazy day at Chez Nana, although it wasn't drama-free. We had a band of storms move through around lunchtime. We got some rain and major winds (gusts up to 60 mph). The wind blew the rain so hard that we could scarcely see our neighbors' houses, and it moved our deck furniture including our gas grill. Thankfully DH didn't detect any damage to the house. We were very fortunate as the front that was responsible for the storms produced tornadoes that touched down In other parts of the state. After the storm passed through, I put dinner in the crockpot and spent the afternoon stitching my hexies. Each block has 25 hexies, all stitched together by hand, so it goes slowly. I have 10 finished and am putting together the 11th. I'm really enjoying working with these hexies ... I don't know why I resisted English paper piecing for so long. ;-)
