It is quite overwhelming when I think about everything that still needs to be done. If only I had the stamina to work 24/7, I'd have it made in the shade.

I continue working at piecing fabric hexagons.

They were originally slated to become Christmas tree ornaments. Now I am not so sure of their final outcome.

Either way, I love these petite patchwork pieces.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your sweet comments and for stopping by and hanging out with me. I know how busy you are yet you still make time to visit my little home on the web. I appreciate it more than you will ever know. (((HUGS))) to you, my sweet friends!

Oh, and before I go, I have one more addiction to tell you about. It is for something my hubby jokingly calls "kiddie candy." I believe that you know what he is referring to. It is the overly sweet and colorful sugary morsels that usually satisfy children.

I guess this just proves what I've been thinking all along. I am just a big kid trapped in an old persons body. I do enjoy living this way, although it does get a bit difficult to see with my head stuck in the clouds! Ha!

I hope you all you fabulous people have the most wonderful weekend ever!

I love your hexies and I too have gone crazy sewing them. They are so addictive :) They are great portable hand sewing too :) Love it as they can be taken anywhere and just start sewing. :)

My first thought when I saw the pics was "Christmas!". I wonder what you will decide. I haven't been able to do any sewing, due to the hose move. I can't open my boxes until the workmen have finished, which will be hopefully middle of October. Although I do have a box of hexies hidden down the side of my chair as a sanity saver LOL

All your stuff is so neat, Lettie. I am sure you will have oodles of stuff to sell at your shows this fall. Thanks for sharing.

Take care.

You have been really busy! I don't know how you sew that fast. I LOVE candy corn also, have been through one container of it already this season. My husband took my grandson to the store where he picked up the container and announced loudly that THIS IS GRANDMA'S FAVORITE CANDY AND WE HAVE TO BUY IT FOR HER!!! He was practically shaking when he brought it to me, he was so excited. Really, should there be calories in that?

Love the little hexies.. have you seen the new hershey kisses? Candy corn flavor! I just made a batch of sugar cookies and added them in the middle.
