Hexies and Flowers

I have been super busy hand sewing.  I pretty much fell in love after I finished my Hexagon mini last month.  It is my relaxation and take along project for the summer.

I can't show you a whole bunch of the project because it is for one of those great little blog hops at Sew We Quilt.  There hasn't been a sign-up for it yet, but I am going to be completely prepared for it when it comes.  Here are some pretty summer solids that I am using with my hexagons.

I am also busy working on my yarn stash.  After a lost tote of yarn was found in May, (let just say it was missing for awhile) was found, I decided to make another afghan.  It is all the remnants of previous projects that I have made in years past.   I am hoping that I will have enough yarn to finish it all up and finish it by October. 

Here is how far I have made it.  Row 72.  I only have 68 more to go.  So,  a little over halfway.

It is an old pattern out of a magazine that my grandma made many an afghan out of.  She would finish one of these in a year.  I now understand why it took so long to do.  It is going to be quite large since it is done with double crochets.  And I am going to rid myself of that tote of yarn!!! Yeah! 
Now,  I thought that I would leave you with a little bit of my summer blooms. 

Have a great weekend!!!
