Slow Start 2013

So, I'm not sure if its because i'm coming off the Hurricane Sandy project, or going back to work after 17 days off, or just that its ridiculously warm here (I know, I know, i'm not complaining, but its too warm) but my sewing machine has stayed VERY quiet. It helps that we brought a new friend home last week, so i've been a bit distracted..


I'm finding that i'm much rather lounge on the couch with my EPP work.. so that's what i've been doing.


I started a new project after seeing Emily's gorgeous quilt I decided I needed to make one. So I did :)

As of today I have 21 of these "hexie snowflakes" as Emily calls them

and more in progress..


Alright, well i'll try to find my creative mojo soon, I have ohhhh.. a million ideas circling and many projects half started or pieces cut, sitting and waiting.. I need to get cracking! :)

  4. After the end of year you have had, I say that you sit on that sofa and do your EPP if that's what you want to do! Such a pretty quilt and I love your new friend :-)

  5. Welcome to your sweet, new friend! Hope to see her/him often here! I adore your hexagons! They are so beautiful!
    I hate hot summer. Now we have winter here in Greece and often it's around +8 till +15 C, but today I'm quilting outside in the shadow, because sun is too hot! Happy week to you with your new friend! x Teje

  6. Yeah, I'd say you were busy enough in Nov/Dec to deserve a bit of a break! I love the hexy snowflakes, and once again am amazed at how fast you crank those suckers out!

  8. I think you deserve the sit-down work for sure & you're still working on a project you enjoy - go for it!

  11. Oh I love those snowflakes, they are going to make a fabulous quilt. Just because the sewing machine isn't on doesn't mean you're not productive! Look at all you've done :)

  13. These are gorgeous! I haven't attempted a hex project yet, but if I did, I'd love to follow your example!

  15. I love your snowflakes and how they're fitting together like a jig-saw puzzle! I think slow can be awesome. :) I really need slow work in between my other projects to help let my creative energy recharge a bit. Have fun with your hand work!

  16. I think this is going to be a gorgeous snowflake quilt. I find sewing all the flowers (in your case snowflakes) together is a little confusing. I have resorted to masking tape to keep them organized!
