these are the days

one day last week, i brought home a little package from the post office ... fabric samples from ButterflyKissesFabric that tammy had sent me!    they're about 3 inches square ... she sent 'simply color v&co], marmalade [bonnie & camille], tapestry [fig tree] and chateau rouge[french general].  i do like marmalade and simply color!

i had a shopping day downtown, too, and, of course, had to go by the lqs to see what i could see, and found a piece of light blue batik for a background piece, a yard of gold batik in the sale bin and a jelly roll that i had to have.

my mango salsa stars is all cut ... it's a small bit of work [it's supposed to be 40" square, but, there's so much left over, that i'm thinking i may be able to make it bigger.  maybe.  so it's not stashed yet.

and my prize from laurie wisbrun [] came the next time i went to the post office!   'olive the ostrich' in pink ... i think i'll make another hexie with it [different from thee hexie one i'm working now]; i'm really liking my hexie project!

it's coming right along,   am glad these hexies are bigger than what the pattern calls for .... the pattern is fat quarterly's quilt along project.  i've more done now than shown here.  am getting the lavender/purples done and have the blue ones cut and ready.  the hexies flowers for the vine and flower border will be smaller.  am still trying to find the easiest way to make the running stitch join. 

so, i've been busy this last week and a half!
