Summer Sewing

 
It's been hot and humid here. I guess summer has finally arrived.  I've been working on a few quilt tops that may turn out to be gifts so I can't post them yet. Due to the heat, I've been working on smaller, somewhat cooler, projects! This is my latest hexagon.  I love working with stripes! I thought it gave the hexie quite a bit of movement!

 
I also started another shawl. I have no idea why! I just love making them! I'm using a book that uses sock yarn to make all the shawls.  I have plenty of sock yarn! This shawl won't be terribly large so it shouldn't make me any hotter in this weather.


Here's the book, if anyone is interested.  There are some really beautiful shawls in this book.

Still trying to figure out how to continue machine quilting my Blogger's BOM.  I should practice the ideas I have but I decided to sew the quilt tops instead. There's only so much time! Hope everyone keeps cool!

    I love the lacey pattern in your shawl. You'll never have cold shoulders again. :-)

  5. That's a cute little hexie! It puts a smile to my face. :) Love the pattern for the shawl, very beautiful. I'm still stuck with the Blogger's BOM quilt too, can't decide how to quilt it.

    1. I'm trying feathers in the set in triangles around the pieced blocks. Notice the word, trying! I love making sampler quilts but do not like quilting them! Too many decisions!

    1. It's cool and raining today but still have high humidity. It's easier to take than that heat! It's so nice to work on smaller things when the heat gets unbearable!
