Remember these hexie flowers I hand stitched during an unusually "steady hand" day? Last night was steady also, so I decided to take advantage of my good luck and try to finish my pincushion as quickly as possible.
It is all finished and I just LOVE how it turned out! I have decided to use the blue side for now (it matches my walls), but I can easily flip it over to the yellow side whenever the mood strikes, lol.
When I had finished the pincushion I began sewing together some more hexies. I have an idea floating around in my head to make something that will solve a minor sewing annoyance of mine...but I am unsure at this point if it will turn out exactly as planned. If my prototype works I will post pics and maybe even a tutorial. My first!
After only sewing together two and a half hexies the tremor started and I was forced to put away my project. DARN!
Good thing I got that much done last night, as my tremor is absolutely HORRENDOUS today. I had a hard time even cutting up fruit for my lunch!
Speaking of lunch, I am trying to incorporate more summer fruits, veggies and fiber into my diet. I SERIOUSLY need to lose weight. My medication has caused a 15 pound weight gain in the last month and I need to do everything I can to combat that side effect! So lunch today was low fat vanilla yogurt, fresh peaches, and a handful of popcorn to add a bit of fiber to the meal. Did you know that Herr's Original Popcorn allows 3 whole cups as a single serving? Definitely enough to fill my belly! I topped it all with a huge glass of ice water. I need to go back to my 8 to 10 LARGE glasses per day.
Over the past few days I have finished sewing up all of the quilt blocks that I had prepped.
Hopefully tomorrow I can begin to square them up and begin pinning them onto my design wall. Until I see the "X's" I've completed on the wall I won't be able to tell if I even need to create more blocks, and additionally what colors or designs I need. I have plenty more charm squares and even some fat quarters and yardage that matches the fabrics I have used so far...so I am good to go whenever I am up to continuing work on my quilt.
Right now I am exhausted and plan to head to bed for a nap. There's always tomorrow.....
