Working my way back

It has been a patch of life where the hats of Wife and Mother took precedence.
BUT I'm  back.

String blocks on phone book pages.

Ready to be squared up.

Cut into 4 3 1/2" squares

A little tin suitcase/lunch box

Lots of random hexies

TA DA !!!

The string blocks are an easy project to take to quilting. Stitch, press, stop and chat . I like how something evolves and surprises my creativity. The addition of the hexies gives me simple stitching in a portable size. Each hexagon is different some just random some of the fabrics have stories.

I have always been more intrigued by the journey than the destination.

I was hap hap happy to find lots of new posts on my blohis morning. I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed sharing with others and yeah. I acknowledge that I have been remiss in posting so

I promise to do/ strive to stop by more frequently. Maybe it will just be a hexie or two but it's a journey your welcome to share.

Enjoy Easter whatever your plans. Terry

Oh I love this idea! I'm in the process of making string blocks to get rid of my junk scraps and with the small pieces of junk I'm making hexies! You came along with this just in time! I was using typing paper to sew the strings on but I'm going to switch to the phone book or newspaper, too. Good on you!!!

These blocks are wonderful Terry!! And it's well balanced project with some machine sewing and some hand sewing. It'll make a wonderful quilt.
