I'm a little bit sad today, Mum and Dad left this morning. We had a wonderful time together, I guess the blessing of living so far away from family is that when they visit you get to spend quality time with them. I have almost finished the socks I was knitting with Mum, just the toe on the second sock to finish off.
During the week the backing for my half hexies quilt turned up, I have spent some time this afternoon cutting out the half hexies for the feature strip I wanted to put into the backing.
The fabric I have used is from the Bubblegum basics. I have had such a lot of fun experimenting with these half hexie blocks, I think I am going to spend some time in the future playing with these...I'm sure there are many more variations that could be used.
Thank you to everyone who stops by my blog and to all who leave wonderful comments and encouragements and hints...I am so appreciative of you and your friendship. Our family is off to Anglesea for the next 4 days, so I won't be able to reply to any comments for a little while. We are going with some friends and are all very excited about getting away and spending some time in another beautiful part of Victoria. There will be lots of surfing by the boys (they are truly mad!!), and lots of walking, drinking coffee, chatting, chocolate and cheese nibbling, and stitching by the girls!!! Ahh, holidays!! See you next week xo
