We are all in Virginia today and completely unaware of the day. I called my middle child to put up the post as we are driving “in to town” for supplies. I spent many hours during the in-law Christmas sewing hexies. The dark green row is ready for assembly

It seems that I only do hexies lately. I guess I am a creature of habit. The light green row is almost done, but the dark green row is going to need a bit of work. I think it will look good though after the yellow and light green. It is easier to see the pattern with the darker hexie colors.
It was a surprisingly calm week. The kids at school all have college applications mostly wrapped up and are waiting on decisions. I went to a private college event and did a tour yesterday of Florida Southern which is most known for its Frank Lloyd Wright Architecture. That was a nice change of pace. Our neighbor put her townhouse on the market last weekend and it is under contract now, so it looks like we will be getting a new neighbor. I think we will do some goodwill shopping today for Ryan's new college apartment and see the newest Marvel movie. Having weekends is such a treat! I could do this all the time.

It is strange for me to be in the last month of the year without a nice stack of new quilts to finish up. Such is the ebb and flow though. Hexies are still screaming my name, and English paper piecing doesn't give you stacks of finished blocks in a hurry. It has been a long slow labor of love. The red and orange rows are done and sewed together, the yellow row is ready to be added! Looks like I still need a few light greens, and then a decision about dark green. Light and dark blue each get their own rows. Does green deserve the same attention? I guess I should think about the dimensions of the final quilt. That might lead me in a direction. With hand stitching, there is plenty of time to think about the next steps while zenfully sewing away the hours and days.I am so enjoying seeing everyone else finish up rainbow scrap projects. Your accomplishments bring me enough joy while I wait for my mojo to flow again.
