  2. Ah, hexies and applique. You'd be a great mate for Rhonda Pearce. The hexagon and appliqué quilts at the Springwood Quilt Show yesterday were fabulous!

  3. Looks like you are making wonderful progress on your quilting. I have been wishing all week that I had a project in the hoop, but for now I need to keep piecing those blocks.

  4. Autumn is usually my most favorit season, but since I'm experiencing Spring for the first time in a long while I'm enjoying that too. Your garden looks lovely and I'm sure you can't wait until those sweet peas are blooming. It looks like you are making great progress with your Auntie Green's Garden, where I haven't touched mine at all for quite some time.

  5. Your posting is filled with a wonderful color palette - from Mother Nature's own to all the quilting projects. It seemed to me that BB's block had 80,000 leaves in it and took forever. Fortunately April's block was an easy walk and quickly accomplished. Love your Brigitte Giblin hexie bag.
