Fun on Friday....

stitching fun.... the best sort!

Don't know what it is about Friday Night Sew in that makes it special.... but it is.   It feels different than a regular night stitching.    There is a sort of stitchy vibe in the air.   Makes a gal want to sit cross legged on the floor chanting a mantra while communing with the needlewomen of the world.

I didn't try that one.  Presuming I could actually get my legs to cross untangling them again may have required medical assistance!

So... I settled for a fabric strewn table....

  
preparing some hexies for sewing....


then stitching the evening away from the comfort of my recliner watching back to back episodes of ER.

This is the result.....


If you are not already stitching flowers for the Vignette Hexie Quilt..... why not?    They are so addictive.  I didn't want to go to bed last night I was enjoying making them so much.

So far I'm only using fabrics from stash.  That's my game plan for the whole project.   Hummm.... that might change when the Moda Scrap Bags I ordered get here! 

Thought you might like to see one of our regular visitors who popped by to admire the flowers.....


Honestly... he's so handsome I just can't understand why he doesn't have a girlfriend this spring!   He looked so lonesome when he left.....


Never mind.  All his pals will be back soon.  When maternity/paternity leave is up.   I feed all the birds in the garden that includes Lonesome here and a dozen of his wild Pheasant friends plus the new brood they'll bring by.  

Till next time....

Hi Josie, your hexagons look beautiful and I know what you mean about FNSI, I kept wondering about who was sewing all over the world! Quite amazing! The pheasant is very handsome, lucky you having him to visit. (Thanks for your lovely comment on our blog too!)

Great job... the hexies are coming along nicely. I'm still searching for my cardboard hexies. Did you find your pen?!

Never participated in a FSI yet but they do sound fun thinking of the hundreds of quilters all busily sewing away. Your hexie flowers are so cute. I've really got to make some.....someday.

What a cute way to photograph your hexagon flowers! There sure are some pretty colors in that pheasant!

Very adorable hexagon 'flowers'! We also had a pheasant cock in the backyard today and our little nine pound Dachshund chased after him, unfortunately.

Hi Josie,
Just found you, and am enjoying your blog. I am laughing at the pheasant, it reminds me of our favorite tv show here called "Heartbeat"! It's actually a British show but we love it...
