All Hexied Out.

"Woody Head" headland walk north of Ilkua.
Good morning one and all. Welcome to this wonderful Monday. I just thought I would share with you my holiday sewing which thanks to the inspiring "hexie" making ladies in blogland helped me get going again with my "Hexie" quilt I started a verrrry long time ago. I managed to get all the little flowers done down one side and attached and all the fill in hexies done down each side and partway along the top edge. It was supposed to be a much larger quilt but I know if I don't finish it now it won't get done. The hexies are 2 inches finished and were a bit small for me. I would like to do a slightly larger one. I also tacked yes with needle and thread all the hexies on there papers because I could not remember what the gluey stuff was that you girls use and I doubt they would have sold it at the bait shop anyway. So I still have a little ways to go but I feel at least I may get it finished a big thanks girls!!! I also finished "My Country Garden" stticheries. Just waiting to be put together now. So I wasn't completely idle staring out at the water.
My Hexie quilt.
"My Country Garden" stitcheries finished!!!
We had a family of ducks that came to visit us every day. We counted 11 in all one day. It is hard to believe but most of them are juvenile birds with their parents and boy did they grow in 2 weeks.
THE  VEGIE PATCH! can you believe it. I even gave away some lettuce and basil. I have loads of tomatoes but not ripe yet and the cucumber plants are full of flowers which I hope means....cucumbers.
I hope your day exceeds your expectations in the most wonderful way. Me! I have to get my pancake eating and fish and chip eating body on to my Yoga mat today.....after sitting and observing some of natures most beautiful places I truly believe real life is Yoga.
Blessings Michelle xx
