Slow and Steady on a Sunday

My design wall is starting to shift from green to blue.   I am thinking of shortening the yellow row for #Fullstop and beginning the process of sewing the rows together.  I might cheat and make a few rows ahead of time so I can verify the layout.  
I outgrew the tiny bowl from last week and moved my hexie collection to a larger version.  There is something so relaxing about mindlessly prepping these little guys during movies.  They are slowly filling  a wooden bowl that my great grandmother Nora used to mix bread in the 1920s.   
And finally, I am still making progress on the Lightning quilt.  I added one more column, and might do just one more before I finish. I already have the backing fabric picked out.   
 I am linking up with Slow Stitching Sunday and Oh Scrap! today.  Be sure to drop by and check out handwork and scrappy projects.

The wooden bowl is a perfect place for your hexies!

Happy Easter to you and your family. The hexies are very addictive, we make one, then we go maybe just one more, one more and before we know it, we have grown a mountain of a pile of happy hexies. What are you making with them?

Such a colorful design wall! Love the bowl, I have one too, but need to find out which ancestor it's from. Happy Easter!

Love the bread bowl for the hexis. What a great idea. I'm still trudging away on Lucy Boston. About to hit piles and piles of the background pieces. Filling up a pretty container of them is a good idea to keep the motivation high!

Your row by row quilt is coming right along. So pretty.

You have a happy design wall there! I love your collection of hexies, too - they're going to make something fun. Good progress with your scrappy 9 patches and that red background! Have a lovely day, Angela!

How cool is that -- having your Grandmother's bread bowl. That's really nice and filled with goodness again.
