Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people. Eleanor Roosevelt

Good morning! I've missed you all! I'm the one at fault. I don't seem to have my act together. Things in my household are all up in the air, or more realistically, on the floor and in every room.
Good news is, the Daughter is moved in. Bad news, so is must of her stuff. We are all trying to marry two households. I assume (we all know what this makes me) we will be doing this for months to come.

Maximus and PugsLee are getting along, as well as can be expected from an only elderly fur child and a puppy.

I'm hoping with the changes around here, that I'll get back into the swing of things. I haven't touched my machine in weeks. I did do a little appliqué. Just a little.
Right now it's more important to have clean dishes and laundry than it is too find time to sew. But cross your fingers for me. All work and no sewing will make me a "B" to live with.

I received the next BOM package. In it I learned that those little hexies I had made, really were too little. They forgot to include them in the last pack. But I'm going to use those little hexies somewhere. I had a lot of fun making them and they are so cute, it'd be a waste not to use them.
Also here is the newest block I'm working on.

So we come to the end. I hope to see you all later this week. I'm really trying hard to have something to show you. Till then...

Your comment about your daughter and all her stuff reminded me of a book that I really like: "It's All Too Much!" by Peter Walsh. He is great. I bought his video too. People have such an attachment to their stuff. However, they seldom realise how rewarding it is to let it go. It's not about having stuff; it's about enjoying yourself in your space. Having too much stuff is actually depressing because it literally weighs you down. Anyway, your daughter might enjoy his book.

I love your applique, esp. those little hexie blocks! :o)

It makes me laugh that even when you have nothing to show, you've got plenty to show. Your little hexes are adorable and the applique is so sweet. Glad things are settling in well enough. Take care!

Your little hexie flowers are verhy pretty Brandie. Things will settle down soon and you will find some time for sewing, I'm sure.
