I have now been off of school for 2 full weeks and have been busy sewing. I have been working on a hexi project for the last couple of months and I have two diamonds completed and one more that is almost finished. I never thought I liked hand sewing, especially applique but I have been enjoying making hexis. I think the entire quilt takes 3300 hexis so this will be many years in the making I'm sure. Here are my first two diamonds.

Through an online discussion I discovered the quilt called Swoon. I have two of nine blocks completed and have been having so much fun with this quilt I'll probably make another one someday. For now this quilt will go on the bed in Zach's North Carolina bedroom.
My paperweight quilt is finished and is now adorning one of the beds in Spencer's North Carolina bedroom. I'm really pleased with out it turned out.

I started this blog primarily to connect with other quilters and to show some of the work I've done; however I went from part time teaching to full time teaching and my boys continue to grow and stay busy so quilting got put on the back burner. I've adjusted to the full time schedule, the boys are becoming so grown up and work has been very stressful lately that I recently have come back to my quilting. I especially enjoy spending my weekends working on a project because quilting helps me not to think of school. I love my kinders but definitely have a challenging this year so when I quilt that's all I can focus on for a little while. I have a few projects that I'm working on. The first is I'm finally finishing my Paperweight quilt that I started 4 years ago.
