Making a tad bit of progress w/the "Scrappy Grandmother's Flower Garden" with 7 new blocks added :)

Not the bestest picture in the world, but I'm quite obviously, not the bestest photographer in the world!!

I've also got oodles of hexies ready for more blocks :)

It appears that "hexies" are the only "sewable" something that's compatible with this injured foot of mine, so "hexies" it is!!! I tried to spend some time in the Sewing Room over the Holiday weekend, but standing on my feet "cutting" and "ironing" just didn't work out, especially after doing laundry and grocery shopping, so it was back to the couch for me! God willing, the cast comes off in 121 hours, but whose counting (LOL).

"Every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything." (Hebrews3:4)


  1. Love it. I'm thinking of doing a "hexie" quilt but my pattern's a bit different. I like the "quilt as you go" idea. I did get my DNP sandwiched and machine quilted. Not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Now I'm working on the binding.
    Hang in there --- it's only 120 hours now!

  2. I love this quilt! I just don't know that I have the patience to work with all of those little hexies! Can't wait to see the finished product.

  3. Gorgeous quilt! I have the hexie templates but have not even tried one!
    Counting the hours with you for the cast to come off :)

  4. oooh, Jan, that GFG is sooooo purty !! You're making me want to get back to mine !! I love the SCRAPPINESS !! Isn't it just too addictive !! ENJOY, dear friend !

  5. This is awesome, Jan, I want to make some hexies too, just afraid I wouldn't ever finish!

  6. Jan I am catching up and wanted you to know I have been thinking of you as I go from pillar to post....
    Tomorrow is your big day for the cast to come off - woo hoo!!!
    Your Scrappy Grandma's Flower Garden is beautiful. You are a goof to worry about your photography .... It is beautiful. Well Done and look how you have made lemonade out of lemons!

  7. Catching up with you. Seems I don't get enough blog hopping time. Fun to see your stuff.
