Wonderful weekend

This weekend has been wonderful.  Have had some warm summer days.  And I have been able to enjoy some time out on the porch. Hope summer has come to stay now, but I have my doubts.  The weather has been very unstable lately.  Lots of rain and wind, so we just have to enjoy the summer days when they comes.


But early in the morning when there is still shadow on the porch, I have spendt some time in mys sewingroom adding more borders to my Phebequilt.


Can’t believe how far I have come now.  Only one ohio star border left to make. 


Perhaps I can find some time this week to cut the pieces for the blocks.  But most interesting will be to see if I have enough fabric, or perhaps I should say, have the right fabric for the triangles.


Having a wonderful time out on the porch. My favorite dish to eat when it is summer and I can sit out on the porch is schrimps.  And my sewing is not far away.

Saturday evening was the first day this summer that I could sit out on the porch until late evening.  And dressing hexagons is perfect to do in candle light. 


Prepped a lot of hexagons this weekend.  Love when the hexagons are dressed and put in small plastic bags in my tin, ready to be sewn together. So easy to bring along with me everywhere.


More prepping.


And my sewing room is a total mess.  Fabric all over the floor.

lots of stitchery going on on your porch, here we are still not having nice hot weather, well we did have 3 sorry 2 days last week but back to cold and drizzle again.
A lovely range of fabrics in your quilt and the hexies will make a lovely project, wonder what you are planning with them.
Had a giggle at the cartoon, that is me fudging my blocks together know the feeling very well.

Your Phebe is lovely and I see you are working on prepping a Stonefields block. I suspect those hexis may be for the border. Good idea to keep up with those. I am 2/3 of the way through the blocks and finished the flying geese but way behind on the hexis!

Phoebe is looking amazing! I have the pattern but it will be a while before I get started on it, let alone get as far as you. Just lovely.

You are making great progress on your Phebe. I have yet to start mine.

I love how your Phebe is coming together! I may have to add this to my 'someday' list. I keep saying I won't, but then I see yours and LOVE it. Also your hexies are looking good - something to work on in spare moments.
