Leaders and Enders

Not a lot of leader/ender bow ties recently as I am using drunkards path blocks right now for my leaders/enders.  These are numbers 451-475.

Hexie BOM–Ice Cream Cone for July

While on my trip to the West Coast, I finished the ice cream cone for July.  I made mine with vanilla and strawberry ice cream.

The cone is not green but beige.  Not sure why it looks green.

Almost Done With My Christmas Quilt

Next week (Thursday and Friday) is Christmas in July at the shop.  I have my quilt almost finished.

All I need to do is add a 2 1/2 inch white border around the red and get it quilted.  I picked up the backing fabric today so I will be ready to quilt and bind on Saturday – wonder of all wonders, I am not scheduled to work.  I am still thinking about how to quilt it but it will happen.  The top is about 68 inches square and I have a giant four patch for the back.

I really like this fabric and the design.

Hexie Pouch

Robin and I made little hexie pouches last week.  We kind of went crazy making little projects.  There is a tutorial at The Zen of Making that tells how to make this cute little pouch.

Here it is open.

Isn’t it cute? 

Inside are two Altoid tins to hold lots of loose stuff – papers, scissors, needles, thread and other stuff. Next I am going to make little pincushions to add to the kits.

Back Home in Georgia

I got home late last night.  Here are a couple more projects we made either in Las Vegas or in Seal Beach.  First is a project that Robin bought the pattern and kits for at Road to California earlier this year.  It is called the Beatle Bag.

Of course the one on the right is mine.  The red and black belongs to Robin.  Here are the insides.

There is also a long skinny pincushion that attaches to the velcro on the bottom of the bag.

We also made wallets.  Here is mine.
