The end is in sight.

This has been kicking around for awhile already.  Can finally see the end.

Need to remove a few here and there, guess I got a little carried away.  The hexies that are backwards are just pinned there and need to be replaced by either white or blue hexies.  Then just need to do a border which I am thinking either a really dark brown or a dark green.  What are your thoughts?

W.I.P. 6-11-2014

Well I have 2 finishes (can't show you one yet is for a swap).  A partial finish and a w.i.p.

Finish - knitted slippers for myself for this coming winter.

Partial finish - Spiral Lonestar quilt top is done.  Had never done curved piecing or y seams before.

W.I.P. - crazy quilt wizard - won the pattern quite awhile back and finially started working on it. Is stitched down and just doing the embellishing now.

Shop Hop Goodies

Here is what I won or purchased.

Went with just hubbie and myself and had a lot of fun.  We have very similar tastes so he will sometimes point out something that I might have missed and vice versa.  Oh yes I am still on a fabric diet until the end of this month but as he said "You are on the diet not me" so yes I ended up with some yard cuts and even 1- 2yd cut of batiks.  What do you think 'Am I spoilt or what?'

W.I.P. June 2014

Am posting a day early as I will not be near my computer for the rest of the week.  It is Shop Hop time.

I finally managed to get back to my Sprial Lonestar quilt.  I had never done curved piecing before and it isn't half as hard as I thought it would be.  It is getting there but slowly.  Life keeps getting in the way.

I did manage to get a little more done on my hexie quilt.  No picture this time around though.
