Thanks for checking into my wee post on my recently begun "Quilt Along" and if you hang over on IS then you can visit with this hashtag #jcqmysteryqal and you'll see some of my posts from my IS feed @carlithequilter
Anyway, I sometimes wonder why the hell do we have to all these different programs, apps and social media sites? ☝
And I get kinda cranky about it sometimes 😊 cause my life is so very busy and I'm just relieved I have my quilting that I determinely hang onto, its really for my sanity and reminder of what I am NOT doing, that I long to do when I'm fully "Retired" and playing in my own sewing room.
I have made hexie flowers before many times. And hexie scrappy blocks like this above are a fine alternative to 'full on hexie' quilts.
I have made dozens of Hexie flowers but not a full quilt. This has been a great learning opportunity.
I have great news, I'm following the #idealprotein protocol with Pharmasave and I'm losing weight.
This feather is the start of new things.
Hoping you all are having great sewing times and staying safe.

I purchased these lovely earrings from a beader I know in Northern B.C. Handmade by an Indigenous maker you can find at this link. Her work is so beautiful, its hard not to buy them all.
So there, you go, this 2020 has been a scary and interesting year. I think I've grown more this year than others for sure and I hope this finds you all well and if not, please leave me comment about your year.
I have made many quilts that are not even photographed and you have forgotten where they all actually went to in the mail or via a hug. I so...
This year end post of the most "unprecedented" year of 2020 is all about the various stitching projects I started, are in WIP'...
I just fell in love with these blocks some time back while the world was learning about COVID 19. I discovered the handpieced and applique q...
