I'm Back!!!!

I'm finally back online! My phone and internet came back on around 3:30pm today! But my phone has gone back off twice since then! They are coming back out Friday to work on all of it again! I guess that is one of the disadvantages of living in the country! But I would not trade it for anything, I love my country living! Amazing how clean that my house has been without phone and internet! Hubby even thought it was cleaner!!!! :)

Anyway, I have been trying to stay warm, it has been very cold here for Kentucky! Thank God for a fireplace! Of course, we have electric heat but the fireplace really keeps it warm and cozy in here!

Hunter lost another tooth! That makes him two!

Also I recieved a nice package from my dear friend, Michelle! She has been working on a hexagon quilt, she has a beautiful photo of it on her blog. I wanted to make one, but needed a special ruler, the closest place that I could buy one was Hobby Lobby and that is about 90 minutes away. So what does she do? She sends me one! And tons of other goodies! If you look close in the photo you will see a Cross necklace and it is made out of horseshoe nails! How cool it that? Also the second photo it a really pretty t-shirt!

Now here is the quilt that I needed the ruler for! I dont' have the rows sewn together in the photo but it is so simple to put together! All cut from 2 1/2 inch strips.
I have been working on my applique quilt too. The pink and green flowered one, I have a photo of it a couple of posts back. I think I am up to 16 blocks, that have all of the pieces ironed down and part of the stitching done on them. Not sure how many I will stop with.
I guess that is about all that has been going on, other than the regular farm things! I'm just glad to be back online!

I'm glad you liked your goodies. Your hexagon quilt is going to be awesome!

Missed you - glad to have you back among us once more.

Hexagon quilt is turning out great.
Making one is on my list (of course, there are lots on my list).

Take care - hugs from oklahoma

So glad you are back!
The hexagon quilt looks great! I would love to see a pic of the quilt under it! (I see little parts of it, but not the whole thing, looks gorgeous!)

Hi Kristie, I am so glad to see you back. I have missed reading your posts. That was really sweet of Michelle to send you all those goodies. Hunter sure looks proud of that hole in his mouth. LOL Your hexagon quilt will be gorgeous. Hope your phone and internet keep working for a while.

I have only just made it back too Kristie, it took us 3 days to get home, we had to stay at a neighbouring station for two nights and then borrow a 4Wheel Drive to get in to our house!! It is good to be home... I am sewing tomorrow!!

Yvonne said...

Gee I didn't write that very well did I? We couldn't get home because our station had 12 inches of rain while we were away for the weekend! There, now it all makes sense, gggg.

Your hexagon quilt is going to be so your start. Will sure enjoy watch that one grow.

Glad to have you back online :) I like those Hexagon quilts. Our group did some and we used fabric with pictures of stuff to make an eye spy quilt. They turned out cool!
