We have a bout of illness running rampade through the house. I won't bore you with details, but I've been laid up for 2 days in bed, and am at that point where I'm sick of being sick. I don't feel up to doing much else, but I thought I'd update my blog with what I've been up to lately.
First of all, I've been cutting hexies with my Accuquilt Go!. Geez, this die cutter is so nice, and when you get spoiled to it, you'll wonder where it's been all your life! I've always wanted to do a Flower Garden Quilt, but was put off with cutting out the hexies. This is just too easy now! I cut the 1 1/2 inch hexies out of fabric, and the 1 inch hexies out of freezer paper. It's the perfect combo for English Paper peicing.
And here's the progress on my Nana's Flower Garden Quilt. (My grandkids call me Nana, so thus...)
I love this for a portable project, and it's just right for when you have a bit of time to kill before work, but don't want to commit to anything extravagant.
Addi't new bandana summer dress. Actually I've made her a few summer dress. The girl loves her dresses! I plan to enjoy this while I can as none of my DD's ever cared to be in dresses. Too much tomboy in them! Addi is all girly.
PS- This is what I did with the half a bandana I had left from Addi's outfit. I made a matching bag! In all, the dress, bows and bag took 3 whole bandanas. Not bad! I have more bandanas too! I think the next dress will be patterned more after a pillow dress. I've seen those on pintrest, and they're cute!
