taking shape

had an opportunity for some slow stitching yesterday; pulled out the hexie project to take stock of progress and do a bit more....you can see have started sewing on the spacer row and what a difference it makes just in this little section! 



starting to look like a real antique quilt and couldn't be happier!   who knew the little hexies and i would bond, but we have!  in addition to this sewing, finished 2 june blocks and more will be tackled today.   was feeling the urge to start a couple of new projects, but have quieted that feeling by looking over some UFOs, a sure fire cure!  ***  summer's arrival has brought consistently hot days ahead, so should be more sewing progress to show--with more finishes???  that's the plan....

  4. All those lovely Civil War neutrals in the spacer rows are so dreamy. Well the whole thing is, too.
