The short of it is this – in April I finished my three year quest to finish the Attic24 Hexie afghan, in May I renewed my passport in anticipation of traveling to Russia in Oct for a missions trip, in June we marked the 8th year since the passing of our beautiful baby, O, in July we celebrated the wild man’s 7th birthday with a DME2 minion cake and my darling hubster and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversay, and in August I started and finished my very first quilt!
Where to start? Let’s go crafty! The hexie…oh, I was determined that this was the year it would finally be finished! It had been languishing in a bag for so long I forgot the pattern and had to refresh my crochet skills before I could begin in earnest. I had about half of it completed and I wanted it done! So it went from this:
With my little helper:

While I’m not thrilled with the binding I really can’t complain for my first ever quilt! My corners will improve!
A few other projects I’ve sewn this summer:
Pot holders and an oven mitt:
Whew! Think I’ll leave off for now and continue next time with my random summer catch up!
God bless and stay safe!
