St. Patrick's Friday Night Sew In Report

I had a great FNSI.  Finished work on time, did the grocery shopping, got home and went to my friend Linda's house to watch Jeopardy, our Friday routine, and started sewing while there.  Then I went home, hubby cooked dinner and I continued sewing.  You would think I would have had time to finish the darn hexie flower quilt... NOT!  But I did get a decent amount done.  And I was in the spirit of St. Patrick's day with all my green!

Green borders added to these two flowers that I had already joined to the main quilt...


And then I started working on the last row...


I'm excited enough about reaching the end of the main part of the quilt that I have started thinking about and planning the borders..... yes this baby is going to have a couple of borders, so there will be more hexie sewing to show.  I hope you aren't getting bored with it yet. :)

We have a new bird feeder.  We have had so many birds visiting that we needed it!  Pine Grosbeaks, Red Crossbills, Redpolls and the odd chickadee.  This morning Harry, the Hairy Woodpecker stopped by to feast on the suet.


Although they spill many seeds on the ground and will feast on them there.


Although the squirrel doesn't like them munching on what he considers to be his!!


I hope you had a productive FNSI.  Please stop by Wendy's blog to see what everyone got up to.

  1. How exciting that your up to the part to begin thinking about border hexies!!! That is progress!! Thanks for sharing the great photos - it's different seeing the photos of bird feeders with snow on the ground. Cute squirrel - we don't get them here - we get possums instead lol

  2. Your hexagon flowers look lovely Janet. How lovely having all those little birds visit and the cheeky squirrel. We don't have squirrels here in Australia.

  5. You must be pleased to be nearing the end of your hexie quilt. You're getting lots of birds. I haven't seen one redpoll this winter.

  12. You are doing so well and it looks wonderful . We dont seem to have as many birds this winter , never saw any Grosbeaks, purple finch or redpolls . Strange as we had so many last year .
