Today I spent some time watching it snow and stitching hexagons. I love hexagons. I think that love came from my Grandmother because that was the only type of quilt she made. Her quilts were made from whatever cloth she could find. Many of her quilt blocks were made from her housedresses that had seen their best days. Then as a young girl my Mom, one of our neighbors, and me all started buying yards of fabric and sharing so we each had 1/3 to make hexagons. It just occured to me....maybe this stash building is hereditary. Yes, that's it!!!
While blog surfing awhile back, I went over to Texas Freckles blog and found that she is having a Hexagon Charm Quilt Along. So I signed up. I have my little travel bag with all of my hexagon paper pieces and a few squares of fabric so I have a take along project all ready when I go somewhere.
We've had a couple of measurable snows this week. Here is the view from my back window. OK. I'll admit it. I put on my boots and trekked out through the snow into the yard. I just couldn't resist. The snow was so pretty.
A few weeks ago we had yellow Christmas lights on the ornamental grass out back in the flower bed, and it just sparkled. Now the snow has weighed it down. We usually don't cut our grasses back until spring because they are pretty in the winter and provide something interesting to look at outside besides the bare trees.
Happy stitching to all of you!! Thanks for visiting.
