Hi there! With just a couple of weeks of summer left, in these parts – I’ve been doing my best to live it up, and have fun with my kiddos. Last week we spent most of a day at a water park, and came home entirely exhausted, but full of excitement to go again – they are all at the perfect age to really enjoy going places like that, and actually have fun! No pictures though – water and electronics don’t mix, and I’m accident prone enough that it could be a problem :)


I’ve been working on this hexie table topper in the evenings. I started with the solid in the center, but I’m thinking it needs to come out, and eliminate the solid plans that I had. I love the “value” hexies, and plan to continue growing it for a while. I have the next round of deep hexies ready to stitch around already. Would you take out the solid?


I’m also collecting inspiration right now, looking ahead to a design heavy week once school is in session. I can feel my creative juices building :)

Next month, I’m speaking at the Wisconsin Quilt Expo – I’m excited and nervous to share my experiences, but really hope to encourage and excite the audience. Any chance you’re planning to be there? I’d love to know a few people before arriving!

Hope your week is off to a great start!
