Hexies and Blocks

Posted by Peggy McCall on January 21, 2014

I have been pulling out my hexies in idle tv time and continued to fill my container:

hexies and freiend 001My little kit is always ready for me, wherever and whenever!

I also have a friend, ALWAYS in my chair. Pye seems to like to be squished next to me.  He also likes to put his chin up on my lap table:

Any ideas?

I am linking up to The Needlework and Thread Network.  WIPs I have a few and they do!

  1. My cap is on but I still have not come up with an idea of what this is…..hum…I’ll have to sleep on it.

  2. Your little hexi’s are adorable! And how about that paper pieced block…. Is it books on a book shelf?

    Yay Lorna! Thank goodness that someone can figure it out. It is unfinished but I am making more and seeing where the project takes me.

  4. so organized with your hexis! cute helper you’ve got, very important to have friends around.

  5. Great to be organized….i like the colors in your second block

  6. Wow! we sure do have similar thoughts! I too have a hexie project — infact it has been in progress at least 3 years now! And I did not imagine what the block was, so being a bit of a cheat, when I visited yesterday there were no comments, so I came back today to see if someone else had got it! And is PYE named after Pyewacket, of Bell, Book, and Candle movie fame?

    Hi there Susan, :)…yes Pye is short for Pyewacket and named after the Siamese cat in Bell, book and Candle. He of course is not a siamese but he was my dad’s cat and when my dad passed, I took him and he is attached to me…in fact, sometimes I am sure he is my father’s eyes. My family has always had siamese cats and their names were Pyewacket and Nicodemus. Yes, books, I am making shelves of books until I get enough of them.

    Thanks Marjorie. I am working on another block which I will show next week.

  9. Hi Peg. Love your hexie project, and your new book project, too. Tigger says hi to Pye. We have another much younger tabby in the house now, too. A baby Tigger if you will. He’s very active, but loves to help with my quilting, too. Actually, more trouble than help, if you know what I mean.
