Hope You Are Having A Great Day!!!!!

It is a glorious, sunny day here in the Tennessee Valley. The temperature today is suppose to be in the 70's. I have been busy sewing this morning---have spoken to #1 son in Maryland, and my #3 Grandson in Florida today, so it is a happy day for me. I have even put on dinner--so my husband will think it is Christmas!!!:-)

I don't really have anything planned, but am going to try to just relax a bit---and when not sewing, I will knit and try to get at least one sock finished today.

Check out the picture of my "Hexagon" quilt. As I think I mentioned, I plan on giving this to my GS's teacher. It is really turning out nice....check out the "creative" block. It is almost half finished (it has 9 rolls or 18 half rows---however you want to count it) I am going to try to find some black/white stripe for the binding and I am going to leave the edges "as is" rather than cutting them straight. Hopefully, I can find the stripe I want---I think that would be the perfect "zinger".

I am also going to make it again for me, but of course, it will be bigger and will not be in solids. It is really not hard to make at all. The pattern was designed by Sandy Klop of American Girl fame. It was in a 2008 issue of McCall's Quilting, and I ordered the set of Equilateral Triangle Templates from them, but you could actually use a generic Triangle Template as well. You really have to pay attention though to putting it together. I had to do a little "frog stitching" because I wasn't being as diligent as I should have been.

Well, I have to get going----have a wonderful day!
