Kindred Hexies

 I am really enjoying being back to blogging.  :) Thought I would show you my Kindred Hexies.  My SIL, Kellie and I are both making a quilt with this shape.  I have a bunch of them prepped and have some already sewn together but not shown in this pic. 
 These are about 4.5" long so when sewing you see a lot of progress with them.  I'm just using scraps on them.
 I have a bunch of them prepped and ready to sew.  This evening I did sew a few of them as I relaxed on the couch trying to deal with my blood pressure issues. 
 Speaking of blood pressure issues, this is what I am dealing with. 
 Richard was off work today and he stayed close by to keep an eye on me.  He and Hunter were right outside building a swing.  :)  This one is sold to one of Richard's coworkers at the hospital.  Richard told Hunter that if he did half of the work with him then he would give him half of the money.  Hunter was all for that!  LOL!  Richard made me a special swing a little while back and I just love it.  It's not like this one and it fits me perfectly since I am short.  LOL!  He measured and made it to fit me.  He also made one like this one below for his mom for mother's day.  My mom already has a porch swing so she didn't need another one.  :)  The swing below is made from Cherry wood.
 I've also been keeping a close eye on my Kiowa Blackberries.  They get up to 3" long!  Right now they are looking pretty good.  We also have a huge path of regular blackberries and raspberries.  I can't wait for them!  When I am up to it, I will walk up there and take a few pics for you.  :)
  I guess that is all for tonight.  I will probably sew a little more on my Kindred Hexies and then go to bed.

Sending well wishes to you, I'm a fellow short porch swinger and I love to sit out on the swing.

That is a lot of hexies, my friend!!
Have you tried many of the BP meds? I have a friend with BP like that and they finally found one that helped bring it down. Hope you can, too!
That is a wonderful swing--talent appears to be spread among all your family members.
I love blackberries--3"?? WOW!

I'm still chugging away on my hexagons too. I love yours, it's going to be a fabulous quilt.

I'm very envious of your berries. They are rare and very, very expensive where I live.
