Hot!!

I'm on vacation this week and it is hot!! We're just taking day trips. We spent the day in Boston yesterday. We did some shopping and ate out. I managed to finish this hexagon last night. I feel it's a cute little reminder of the baby quilt I made a few months ago. I love those little dresses! Doubt I'll get too much sewing done this week. We're going back to Boston tonight to see the Red Sox! Hope it isn't quite as oppressive by then. I'm hoping to hit a couple of quilt stores this week. My husband never minds driving as long as there's some nice place to eat.

Here's the last look at my Lil Twister quilt. My mom has it now and she loves it! She thinks the air conditioning makes her legs achy so she can use this to warm them up! I'm happy she likes it so much. She spent years helping my dad make alterations on clothing and has never enjoyed sewing after that. She likes what I make but has no interest in taking up sewing as a hobby. I can't blame her.

Enjoy the week! Stay cool and I hope to be able to post something by the end of the week!!

  1. That little dress fabric is so sweet! I've always wanted to go to Boston. I picture it very charming and classic. When I was little I loved the movie Parent Trap, the old one, and the mother is from Boston. Hope you have fun on your vacation adventures!

  2. I love those hexies. They are so stinkin' cute!

    I apologize for not commenting recently. I have had computer problems.

    I hope you enjoy your vacation. I was born in Massachussetts but haven't been back since I was about 6 months old.
