I finished my hexie for today, sorry the photo is not the best. 

I have had a very busy day teaching CPR at the hospital. Those Annie dummies are new and stiff so by the end of the day my hands are sore and tired. Makes sewing and knitting difficult. I am so grateful for the use of my hands to do the things I love.

Here is some of the pretties I bought last week-end at Connie's. Not sure how I will use them but I am sure the end product will be beautiful.

I have my triangle quilt on the machine for quilting and man-o-man this quilt is big for my Bernina. Took me a couple of hours to get this quilt "adjusted" so I could manage some fine quilting that satisfied me.
Hope to get some quilting in before bedtime. Until later have a wonderful evening.

Your hexie flower colors are so pretty. I like that shade of red.

My neck and shoulders start hurting whenever I see a photo of someone working on a big quilt with the sewing machine--just like I do. Saves money and gives a great sense of satisfaction, but oh, the aching shoulders and neck! The triangle Q looks great.
