TBT

last week at the laundromat, was browsing thru their collection of vintage magazines and stumbled onto this, a definite cringe moment for someone in the news of late....


i am NOT taking any sides in this issue, rather feel disappointed (and forewarned) recalling some wisdom about sins committed in secret...can you read it?  about halfway down the page, a quote from bill cosby, "a word to the wise ain't necessary; it's the stupid ones who need the advice."  this from the april 2004 issue of woman's day....so sad indeed...cannot imagine the conversations that transpire in that household.  *** and why no sewing projects you ask?  shhhh, finishing up some secret christmas sewing, my only handmade gift this year and it's almost done, which is good....LOL

hexie progress

this now and then project is progressing albeit slowly...


the main colors of the quilt are blue, pink and brown, so had to go back to the stash and pull fabrics in those colors.  at about 190 rosettes, it's a long way from being a flimsy but it's a nice travel project to have ongoing.  and i took vic's advice and am using scrappy rather than plain muslin for the connector sections.  they look like they will work out okay....finishing up my one holiday sewing project today and tomorrow; lists are made and all is in order for a very low key holiday.
