Hex Flowers

My Garden

Well one thing about the combination of rain and hot sunny days, my garden has gone wild.  The zuchinni  in the foreground are waist high.  (Sunday night I found 3 club sized zuchini, i do not understand how they hid so well when they are small, but from what i have read, I am not the only one who finds monsters from time to time!)
The tomatoes in the next patch back are chest up to nose high on me.  I am short, 5'3" but that makes my tomato plants almost 5 feet tall. And though you probably cant see it in the picture, they are loaded with small green fruit.
The Peas are about done, the heat is not their friend, but the green beans are starting to flower. I love fresh from the garden food.

One Flower and a few 4 patches

Here is todays one flower, this one has all its white, and I started on the connecting green as well. 
I really was in the mood to play with my sewing machine this weekend, so I started a scrap quilt. Using only stash. Its the Schnibbles Plan C quilt, done using up stash fat quarters. I have all the four patches done, and am working on the star points. Although I have dog shows all next weekend, I am hoping this top will still get completed by next Wednesday, but no promises.
Woohoo I love using stuff on hand. 
Sorry the photo is a bit dark, and doesn't do the colors justice.

Its time for something different..

I haven't had the sewing machine out for a while, and today I have the bug.  After work tonight I am going to start working on a scrap project. I have been collecting scraps and cutting bricks, 1.5 x 2.5 for quite some time. I have a shoebox full, so I think its time to start putting those bricks together.

And I have a few other WIP's that I would also like to get back out. I am hoping for a weekend of quiet sewing time. I hope to update Monday with some status and progress photos!

One Flower Wednesday

Well at least one partially completed flower.  It was a crazy busy week and weekend for me and picking up a needle for even a few moments rarely happened.  However, I do think this one is pretty!
