I’m seeing hexi’s everywhere!

How about you???

We stopped at Walgreen’s this afternoon to pickup Zyrtec, of course I have to look around a little, and low and behold I saw these.  I think I’ve eaten this type of chip at Retreat in Texas last year.

Anyway, let me know where you see hexi’s these days, besides your sewing basket of course.

Have a nice weekend!



First I want to thank those who took to time to comment on my pink and brown Pinwheel blocks.  I’ve tried a couple more things, not crazy about either of them, probably the fabric I grabbed.  Will put this on the back burner until after Spring Quilt Market.  Too many other obligations popping up to ‘play properly’.

I probably grabbed the wrong indigo print, will try this again on some of my other indigo prints and see what happens – I’ll have time in about 3 or 4 weeks to look at them again.  And another thought has occurred to me . . .

so one more attempt, I tried it on a favorite green piece - nope bad choice on my part

I think the resting time is in order, I seem to be making it worse!

I do have a couple more pictures to share – the first is the classroom for the first workshop in VA, it was in a church classroom, see the lovely hanging decor made by the children – so cute!  However I did keep walking into them, no harm done though.

There was also a little road trip Tuesday afternoon, I got to see Jinny Beyer’s Studio – it is a very sweet shop with wonderful extra items for sale besides all her lovely fabrics.  I did buy a couple wooden things, one a small cutting board and the other an inlaid box.  When they arrive (had them shipped), will take pictures and share later this week.

After the little shopping excursion we went to the Old Brogue Irish Pub, it is in the same area as Jinny’s shop.  Really good food before the program presentation Tuesday evening.

dinner here on Tuesday before program


I arrived in Omaha Wednesday afternoon, Russ and I did a little grocery shopping and determined that steak on the grill Wednesday would be quick and easy and delicious, we also grilled asparagus and had french rolls and dipping olive oil.  One thing I really like about dinners like this is the leftovers.

Thursday evening we had a beautiful salad with leftover thinly sliced steak, oven roasted asparagus, french rolls and dipping olive oil.  You do this don’t you?

OK, the confession is, beautiful meals don’t happen everyday.

Tonight I’m making tacos with ground beef – easy and still yummy.

It has warmed up today to 82 after having the furnace on for a few cool rainy days, it is fine to move the setting back to AC.

Happy Stitching!


Aug 19th, 2011 dinner – big yum

Don’t you love this time of year, well if you have a garden you do. And lucky me I have a gardner, my DH, Russ. I don’t garden, but I can be pretty good in the kitchen. I should have arranged this on a pretty plate, but this one will go in the dish washer, that can be a ‘good thing’.

The tomatoes are Brandywine (heirloom tomatoes), thinly sliced fresh mozzarella, fresh chopped basil, chopped Proscuitto (from a speciality store in Omaha), fresh ground pepper, sea salt, drizzle of ‘good’ olive oil (William Sonoma, kind of $$, but oh so good), and a drizzle of ‘good’ balsamic vinegar, oh my a REALLY big yum!

I just want to share some of the good things of summer with you today.

Re: Blogging
I know that when I post to someone else’s Blog, I normally get a reply from them, I certainly don’t expect one, I just want to make a comment about their post.
So when you add a comment to my Blog, please don’t expect to hear from me about your post. OK?
I doing good to ‘Blog’! much less write a reply.
I seem to be buried in email, so . . . I’m not answering, please don’t take offense, just think of it as taking control of time.
Thanks for understanding!
Hugs – enjoy this lovely Sunday evening!
PS – we are inside, there are gnats swarming outside, no breeze to move them along. Oh well!
