i ♥...

vintage hexies!!

I made these sweet mini 3/4 inch hexies from the vintage feedsack squares I had found at one of the antique shops in Iowa.  I love how they all look together!

Now to decide what to make with them.  What do you think...a pillow, mini wallhanging, or maybe stitch them together and put them on a canvas board to hang?

Pillows, oh yes, cheek pinchingly cute pillows! 

These adorable pillows I received from the last two Pillow Talk Swaps!  Aren't they so cute, and they look like they were made to go together!!

Little Red Riding Hood's Victorian house.  Kylie created this adorable paper piecing and turned it into the sweetest pillow.  I love the sweet fussy cuts and the lovely floral and polka dot linen!!  It is a work of art!

Amanda and I had done a little side swap for my other X and + pillow from the last round of the Pillow Talk Swap.  This is the sweet pillow she sent me.  I just adore the LRRH embroidery and the cute patchwork border!  So cute!

strawberry picking with my family!

This last week-end we went strawberry picking!  It was the last week-end the strawberry u-pick was open so it was a must!

Though, I think the kiddos ate more strawberries than they picked!  :)

We ended up picking 2 large bowls of over 20 lbs of strawberries.  Most of them have already been made into freezer jam.  YUM!  :)

i ♥...

 the beach!

After strawberry picking we headed to the beach in Sequim and had lots of fun!  It was such a pretty day and was perfect for the beach! 

We did a little hike down to the beach to the Dungeness Spit.  The Dungeness Spit is a large sand bar that goes 5 miles and at the end is a light house.  We got there too late in the day to hike it so would love to go back soon.

It was quite a fun filled week-end and couldn't have been better...hand stitching, strawberries and the beach!!    I've also been working more on my diamond star hexagons too, so hopefully this week I can make some more progress to show you.  I'm also hoping to get back to sewing a few Farmers Wife blocks.  Have you seen Kristyne's?  Oh my...it makes me want to get mine done now!
