Somehow I feel better about the progress of my hexagon quilt by counting the hexies. They are in groups of 6 and 25. Since Sept 1 of this year, I have made 906! Only 300 or so to go. Hah hah...only. They went into the box again after Delores the T-Rex arrived.
I am going to stitch them together in "blocks" beginning in the New Year. An especially enthusiastic Thank You to that special person who sent me some special 5 inch-ish charms! They will be in hexagon form by the weekend! I am in awe of her American Jane collection!
The Scaredy quilt is being quilted and should be finished in a week or so. I have not forgotten my Dresden plate quilt. It is looking more like a top lately. I'm not going to feel guilty about ignoring the sewing machine and having unfinished Christmas goodies. I'm going to go take some Dayquil and get some rest. A sinus cold seems to be the other Thanksgiving tradition here. We dropped from the high 70s last week to freezing temps. I should have expected it. Such is life...
