Work in Progress

This weeks work in Progress

My hexie project is coming along nicely, I've made loads of hexies this week.

This is not a photo of the offending feathers, but ones that I,m happy with!
 I have fallen out with my quilted feathers, the tips haven't formed nicely on the latest half triangle that i have sewn, so I'm going to unpick them and practice drawing them out before I start quilting them again.

No progress on my Poppy quilt, its waiting in the quilting queue.

I challenged myself to make a grab a button for my blog tonight, I read through a couple of tutorials which made it sound so simple, but its taking ages to get it right!
Don't suppose anyone will grab it, but it will look nice hanging around the side of my blog, just got to figure out how to set up the links for it, a couple more hours and I should have it sorted LOL!!
This post is linked up with Freshly Pieced and Esther's blog!

Happy sewing!

First of all I have to say I love the way you have organized your hexies. Being I just started doing my first hexies yesterday - and have decided I'm hooked on doing a lot more of them, and what a wonderful way of organizing them all.
Second I love love love your quilt and your feathers are not at all bad. I have to dive in someday and try and I'm sure I can't do half that good. I know I am going to draw them on first or they'd be a total disaster. LOL Great job and lovely lovely quilt. : )

Oh your hexies are lovely! I gotta be in the mood for them, which isn't often, but sure admire when others do them! Nothing quite like them is there??
