a new day!!

Today was full of new things for me! I tried hexies for my { Urban } HOME Goods - a modern swap partner and they were super easy ( so far! ) haha... I finished an embroidery for Jessica that had a sweet appliqued alphabet theme to it for her little boy! I added a new hoop to my little sewing wall that brought out the sci-fi junkie in me! I went to my local Ikea ( i know... not a new thing ) and bought a new picture for my never ending bedroom makeover... which i love, since it added much needed drama! I also received a fabulous stash of Anna Maria Horner fabric for new pillows to match my bedroom!!
but the best new today... was a friend! It was wonderful putting a voice to a talented quilter ( Julie... at Jaybird quilts ) and finding out that I'm not the only person with a dry sense of humor!!! Check out her blog... she's fab and you'll love her goodies!! ;)
Xo, Heather

  1. Adorable hexies! I'm going to try some of those this month for sure! Also -- disaster! I started cutting for my me + you blocks and I realized that most of my AB fabrics are 1/4 yard cuts. Too narrow for the blocks. So I started to cut some Nicey Jane fabrics instead, but realized that now my white squares are too white. I guess I will grab something like Kona Snow after work tomorrow. I THOUGHT I was all prepared! But, I promise to post something tomorrow! I'm going to make at least 4-5 blocks or die trying (she said dramatically)!

  2. your hexes look great! I love how the red really pops, but isn't in everyone. I'm on my second week of making hexes, and have a little over 200 basted! It is really addictive...I find myself making them everywhere, the doctors office, the park, waiting for my son to get to the car......

  15. Hi Heather

    I want to ask you for help with something, I just feel like you're the woman to ask. I've seen a teeny tiny piece of fabric that I like and I would love to see a bigger bit of it to see if it's still something that I like. I have no idea what it is and I've tried to look around a bit where there might be a chance to find it again but I've only seen it this once.

    I've got a link for you: http://www.flickr.com/photos/37222932@N08/4374531492/in/pool-munkimunkiquiltalongandswaps
    Down in the middle there's a bride, can you tell me or show me anything about it? If you can, please do.
