Slow Stitching + Stash Enhancement

It's bitter cold in Wisconsin today.  I hate frigid weather (the wind chill factor was -26 F this morning!!-- yuck!), but I love that it is making for a quiet urgent care clinic.  I work x-ray every Sunday at urgent care and it's usually crazy busy.  Quiet shifts are something to relish!!  I brought my EPP hexies with me and am able to get some slow stitches in. =)

I don't have a plan for these.  They are just scraps that I wanted to put to use.  I'm thinking (but not sure) about ringing each one with grey hexies and creating a mini?  I don't know!  I've appliqued a few onto pincushions.  Maybe I can add them to totes or zippy pouches?  In the meantime, I'm focusing on the process.

My big Lutherdale Retreat is coming up this week.  I don't have my project list fully figured out yet.  Maybe I will start 'Hillside Houses' by Pretty Little Quilts?  Just in case, I put in a big order of Moda Bella Solids! I have a lot of cool blues, greens and purples, but was lacking in the warmer tones. The yellows are remarkably similar-- I didn't have my color card handy when I ordered. =( Whatever isn't used in this quilt will be a nice addition to my stash!

I've been wanting to make a few scissors cozies from SOTAK's pattern.  Last Saturday, I finished one and hope to make a few more at retreat.

Linking up with Molli Sparkles Sunday Stash and Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching.


  1. Your hexies are adorable! You have quite a great set up for traveling. I am glad you had a slow day at work--stay warm!

  2. I love your colorful hexies! How fun to be able to EPP at work. Stay warm!

  3. Don't you just love making all those pretty hexies? I know I do. Beautiful fabrics.

  4. Those hexies are addicting. Lovely, rich colors.

  5. I've been eyeing the Hillside Houses pattern too!
