Some 'Scrappy Hexy Quilt' Progress

As I mentioned in my previous post, it was nice to have a break from working on my Scrappy Hexy Quilt... I'd been working on it fairly consistently for some time & it was good to have a change from those six-sided darlings!
I also made reference to plodding... well good for me, I have plodded Tuesdays block into place on the quilt (in the top left of the pics)... and even started stitching together another block while watching Jaws2 last night. (It's not so much a scary film, but corny in how much the size of the shark changes and how fake it looks, & how ridiculous the whole film is!! )

My evenings are very quiet at the moment... mrHS is on an overseas work trip until the end of the month, and the "kids" are busy with their studies, so I can watch telly & stitch to my heart's content... this should give me fab plodding opportunity! Nothing like a good instalment of 'Death In Paradise' or 'Murdoch Mysteries'.

Kids... what on earth should I be calling them?! They are now 17, 22 & 22... they're beyond being referred to as "kids" 😃

You kids will always be kids. After almost 30 years of marriage, I still think of my husband as one of the kids. Your hexie quilt is coming along beautifully. I really like the white hexies bordering the blocks. --Andrea

Nice to have quiet times to relax with what you love...like those hexies. I remember when my grandson turned 11 and wanted me to say kidsit instead of babysit because he wasn't a baby anymore. I had to smile.
