2014 The Hexie Blog QAL

July Ice Cream Block

2014 Hexie BOM

The block called for two ice cream scoops and I did try my block both ways, but ultimately decided on one biggggg scoop of ice cream.


On another food note, Big Mick harvested some of his Jalapeno peppers and stuffed them....yum!

Life on the Bayou........

Many of you knew Susan from Life on the Bayou .  No I did not know her personally, but  just from her quilting blog.

I cherished all the words of faith she posted as she took us with her through her courageous journey as she faced cancer with her unstoppable faith.

Her sweet husband posted today and mentioned the song below as one of her favorites.

Susan you will be missed.

Hexagon Weekend by Angie

I'm still working on my July Hexie for The Hexie Blog.  I was going to have only a single dip for my ice cream, but am going to try the double dip suggested.

This is way I'm so behind on my projects

Mick, Mom, and I went to Tio Dan's on Friday for our very favorite Puffy Tacos followed up by Round Rock Donuts......Yum.
Mom had one taco and one donut
I had two tacos and two donuts.
Hmmmmmm........I think I need to switch to Mom's diet....giggle.
She's 1/2 my size or in other words...I'm twice her size.

Designer Mystery 2014

Designer Mystery 2014 BOM
Magical Anna
Designed by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts
The BOM is from 

They may have sold out of this Mystery already.  I couldn't find a direct link.

This block was a little scary.  You make four hour glass patterns and then cut some off.  It fit to the snowball block perfectly.  No reason to fear.

Here's the video for block one.


My quilty partner was laying down on the job.  Well at least she was 'sleeping' on fabric.

Awwwwww....Mom don't wake me up with that flashy thing!

I got Big Mick a new camera for Father's Day.  I saw it on another bloggers blog.  Sorry I can't remember who, but if you visit you'll know you made a good recommendation....:)

Here are a few of his first photos!  Looks pretty good to me.

The Ben Franklin Mystery

Block 22

Ben Franklin Mystery Quilt

As Erik says on his blog,
It's never to late to join.

My four Grandkids are here for their "summertime visit".  Big Mick took them to the movies today so I get to play on the computer.....:)

My daughter planned a trip for all of us at the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort while my son and his wife were off the see the last of George Strait!

Everyone had a fun time floating down the crooked river.
Well not me....grin.  I lounged around and had a fun time at the Cabana Bar.  Some lady in the pool area ordered a "Hot Cabana Boy" "drink" by that name.

Most of the kids had their photos taken on the Longhorns.
Mick and Scott spent the first day golfing.  It's a lovely course.

So much fun!!
