It's a good thing I am a woman and can multi task, because I am turning it into an Olympic sport here in our house. Getting ready for our holiday, doing the usual like feeding the masses, and laundry, grocery shopping... oh... and cutting the fabric for my September Brit Bee blocks.
There has been some indication that a few in the bee would like a hint. Ha! Well, I will tell you this much. It involves my new baby - Go! Baby that is. We have been spending a lot of time together today.
I have been cutting over 30 different fabrics and a charm pack. Did you know that it takes a lot of hexie cutting to get enough for 12" blocks? And did you know that the Go! Baby can cut very small hexies?
How many of you believe that I went with hexies? How many think I am winding you up? How many think I am having fun with this?
I am certainly telling the truth about the fabric. Here's a sneak preview.
And if you think I am joking about using the Go! Baby - here are some of the scraps.
Now I really had better go sort a suitcase or two. A holiday to take. Places to go and people to see. I will be able to access my Google Reader and will continue my voracious blog reading, but I will not be able to access my email if things go the way they did up north. So thank you for any comments you leave in the coming week and apologies that I cannot reply.
Cross your fingers the sun shines on us. Would love a day or two on the beach that didn't involve layers upon layers of clothing.
Hi Susan, hope you have a good holiday and the weather is good to you. LindaReplyDelete

I'm going to trust you, and believe that you wouldnt be mean to us... so I'm going to wish you a very happy holiday :-) Hope the rain dont drop and the wind dont blow and the sun shines its heart out.ReplyDelete
The baby Go! is a wind-up after all! Have fun; missing you already! xxReplyDelete
Have a wonderful holiday - I've ordered sunshine for you, let me know if it doesn't turn up!! P.S. I'm not in the bee so you could tell me...I promise not to tell ;o)ReplyDelete

If you don't want piles of clothes on you should be going to the nudist beach at Brighton!! Ahh - too cold!ReplyDelete
Enjoy the IoW and chill in a good way with glass of wine and I-pad!
I've never done a hexie! Two ways of looking at this..if you're winding us up, phew!! on the other hand, if you're telling the truth, I am forced to learn a new skill :) Have a lovely time , Mrs xReplyDelete
You can cut hexes with it - now I am green with envy. Have a lovely holidayReplyDelete

Oh you look like you have been having fun and adding to your stash to replace today's cutting! Looks fun and the hexies do look so beautifully cut. Enjoy yourselves - I'll miss you!ReplyDelete
