Hexagons

I worked on more hexagons today.

The fabric is "Glace" by 3 Sisters for Moda. Hard to see it on my floor (that's why I chose those tiles - nothing shows! Great for dirt, not for my design floor!) I will use off white for the fill in triangles. Only about less than half of the hexagons are there. I still don't know what I am going to make, I just wanted to use this fabric.


Todays FMQ. Another feather.
My new (only two weeks old) free motion foot broke on the week end. The piece that sits over the needle screw broke off. When I turn on my sewing machine it does a little dance (re-calibrates itself) and the metal piece would get caught in the needle screw. This is the foot that goes with my machine. I am just waiting to see what the Husqvarna dealer has to say. Now the foot just sits on the fabric, fine until I get to a seam.

I also transplanted lots of seedlings today. Ran out of potting mix, so I didn't get them all finished.
Summer is coming!!!


Beautiful sunset through the baseball diamond behind our house.

Have a great day and thanks for dropping in!!

Wonderful Hexagons ...and that feather is terrific too. Looks like your garden is a great place to work in too..What are the plants?? I think thats terrible to have that happen to you new machine foot. I so hope you get that sorted...not nice!! and VERY frustrating I imagine.

I love that sunset picture. Beautiful pink. Too bad about your fmq foot. Gesh. I guess it's good to have a backup. Love the hexagons. I have a hexagon project in my future. But not for a month.

Argh about the foot. I will be interested in what they have to say, too.

I love that Glace fabric; your hexagons look beautiful!

I have a Husqvarna too, and they are usually pretty good when something like that happens. Hope they replace it for you!

XOXO,
