Slowly on a Long Weekend


Our little section of the beach is having a busy weekend.  Yesterday there was another wedding.  We saw all the guests in their fancy wedding clothes and high heeled shoes showing up at the beach as we were walking the dog.  
 Then this morning there was a rocket launch.  It was packed!  Even Sydney had heard about it and wanted to walk down with us to the sand. 
 I spent most of yesterday catching up on a very old block of the month from Temecula Quilt Company.  I have been saving these for ages.  The first half was already cut out and in individually labeled baggies.  They just needed to be sewn together.  Blocks 1 to 30 are all done. 
 The second half still needs to be cut out, so I have made myself a little cutting station and will kit up the last 30 blocks. 
 Almost done with the light and bright green diamond hexies.  I am joining them into pairs with the setting triangles included on one end.  I'll do rows when I have all the colors ready to go. 
Finally, just one and a half sides are left on the four squared scrap quilt.  I got a good bit done while we watched Inception last night.  I probably could have finished the quilt, but the movie was very visual, so I had to pay attention. 
After all that, there is still an extra day to enjoy in the weekend!  Monday holidays are such a nice invention.  We should have them more often.  I'll be linking up with Kathy's Quilts and Oh Scrap! today.  Be sure to visit and check out scrap projects and slow stitching.

I would enjoy going to a wedding on the beach, but don't think I would wear high heels, lol! Your Temecula BOM looks like it will be lovely. Glad you have some extra time for sewing this weekend!

I think it would be amusing to see high heels on beach - hard to walk in for sure LOL
I love those green hexies

Enjoy your LONG weekend, Angela!! No slow stitching for me today. I'm in studio clean-up mode. I'm looking forward to your Four Square finish, SEW...
Happy Slow Stitching!

Lovely colours in your BOM blocks.

I'd love to go to the beach, much less a wedding on the beach! Lovely blocks in your BOM

I forgot the launch was today. Looks like a busy weekend on the beach. Enjoy the extra day off.... I wish we had more of them!

I too wonder how those high heels would fare on a beach. Your BOM is looking lovely and it is always a wonderful thing to view some hexies. Love your view of the beach.

I laughed as well about the high heels. I few light and limey greens love this hexie project. I did those tiny Tmecula blocks and gave them to a guild member (she doesn't work tiny) and I am curious to see how she sets them.

High heels on a beach? Interesting.
You made some great progress this week.

I think beach weddings are great but I always cringe when I see the bride's dress dragging in the sand or ladies sinking in the sand in their high heels - lol! Your scrappy quilt is just beautiful. Enjoy your extra day off!

Look at those tiny blocks! Wow! I love your green hexies...they're a lot of FUN! :)

Your quilts and pieces are beautiful.

Why would anyone wear heels to a beach wedding??

Susie H said...

I love all things Temecula and your hexies look very pretty too. I have a friend that lives in Satellite Beach FL and loves watching the launches too!

The movie choice for hand stitching is crucial... it has to be something you can listen to more than watch!
