Lesley, if I was a child, I'd want to snuggle up in one of those beautiful, colorful "blankets" immediately!  (even if it is nearly 100 degrees here ;-))

Nice job!

Nancy,

If you are cutting the 2 1/2 inch squares for 1 inch hexies from a strip, you might try this to make life a little easier:  cut the length from the 2 1/2 inch strip at 2 5/8 inches.   That will allow you a little extra 'fudge room' when going around the longest diameter of the hexie.   I am able to do that will all the white background hexies and it makes folding a little easier for me.   The 2 1/2 inch square works, but it is just a little easier at 2 1/2 X 2 5/8.

Today is so blasted hot here in the state of Nebraska!  Feels like a blast furnace outside so this old girl is staying inside with the a/c.  Daughter has started her junior year in high school and hubby is busy with the farming and golfing this summer.  I on the other hand have been scouring many books and magazines for patterns to get started on.  Have a feeling this may be the winter for a lot of sewing!  You know that feeling you get that says,"watch whats coming?"  That's the feeling I have.

i really don't have much newsie news so...........HappyQuilting All!

Donna B:
Also, did that huge T-Storm miss you last night?  

either it missed us, or I missed it.  What I did see looked far away, south east of here.  We got some rain, but not a lot.  Much of Oregon was under severe thunder storm alert.

I used google, but am learning some things from my daughter, like to self-clean the oven 1-2 days after it was last used.  And the cookie sheets I bought today, (cheep walmart ones) may need to be dunked in the creek.  then they will really need washing to avoid giardia or ecoli.   and porcelain sink is impossible.  So I bought a couple plastic basins today.  If it was a stainless steel sink I could do something about it.

the McCord air force boys were showing off over the house this afternoon.  Flew over 5 times, sometimes upside down.  They are amazing to watch.  Last time he did a quick tip of his wings at me.  No one else around, so it had to be for me, right?

I wouldn't even know where to begin to make a kitchen kosher.  Good luck and have a good visit with your family.
