Well, the wedding went off wonderfully and the happy couple is honeymooning in sunny Spain...and I am happy that they are happy! I was told I would feel let down after the event but really all I felt was tired. Everyone seemed to have a great time. It was a fun wedding. No pictures to share yet, but when I do get some I will post them.
However in thinking about this perhaps the let down phase was the last 2 days where I just didn't seem to get anything done. Oh, I returned some shoes, and some capris and a lampshade but I didn't even go into my sewing room... until today!
I sewed up some more of these hexagons and pondered what I want to do with them. During the initial gung-ho phase I was going to make a really BIG quilt. However those feelings have dissipated and I'm contemplating just working with the 60 some odd blocks I'll get out of cutting the one 25" repeat. That many hexagons will make a nice size lap quilt, or if I use this kind of layout...
I could make a BIG quilt with the amount of pieced hexagons I already have. I found that layout in a new book called The New Hexagon by Katja Marek - Bev's Modern Vintage Hexies and you can see the book here.
I also like this layout which is also from The New Hexagon book...
It takes more hexagons than the first layout but it is different and interesting. I need to mull it over a bit. These are two of the blocks I made today... LOVE the spin!
I have a ton of things I want to get done now that the wedding is over... there is still the plumbing issue in the basement that needs attention, and I want to have some carpet installed in my son's room and my sewing room, and I have to clean out the garage which I should attend to this weekend as I could unload some of that stuff in a garage sale next week,and I need to make eye exam appointments for me and my son, and there are about a bajillion quilting, cross stitch and knitting projects I want to get to. When I think about everything I want to do I'm tired before I get started...LOL...I think I need a nap.
It is going to be a busy summer! Bring on the warm weather!
