Much Work, No Finishes - Yet!

I have been working hard on some projects.  The yarn eater afghan is coming along nicely.
 I now have five rows done in a 5 x 5 configuration.  I am going to be adding to the length now.
 It is cheerful and colorful.
Many years ago, before EPP became the "IN THING", I started a hexagon quilt to be a tablecloth for my large kitchen table.  I worked on it and then it became hidden under all the new projects.  I feel the need to finish an old UFO!  So out came the hexagons and I have been working like a mad woman on it.  I am so going to get this puppy finished.  
 I still love it even though some of the fabrics are starting to look fairly dated.  No matter!  I am forging on.  I have made progress since I took these pics a couple of days ago, so I will do an update really soon.  Amazingly I found the red sashing fabric in my stash.  You can't see it in the photo but it is a red background with tiny orange polka dots.  So cool.  Anyway dear friends, thank you for stopping by and I wish you a fantastic weekend.  Enjoy the rest of the Olympics.  I always feel like I am part of history when I watch them - so steeped in tradition.  Sorry about the bad pics - taken on my phone at night.


  1. The afghan looks so nice! And keep on with the UFO! Have a nice weekend!

  2. That yarn eater design is so nice made up, yours is looking great.
    And whats not to love about older fabrics in hexis, somehow that's part of their past, present and future glory!

  3. The colorful afghan reminds me of one my grandmother made... love it!
    From one hexie addict to another... forge ahead with your UFO hexie project... I think the older fabrics add an element of charm!
    I checked out your TCS fussy cut stars as well... awesome!!!

  4. I haven't seen the yarn eater design before - it is really neat! And I love your hexies too - great feeling to be working on an older project! I have got behind in my blog visiting, it's so interesting to see what you have been up to!!
