Monday Morning Star Count

Ugh,  guys, what have I done?
We decided to take a last minute trip to Kastro/Killini to visit our cousins who are beach camping.  It was so last minute that while I remembered to bring my epp travel sewing kit, I completely forgot to pack deodorant and hair gel...
Anyway, here it's Monday and I have no way to post a decent Star Count!  I'm trying blogger's 'post by email' feature for the first time, hope it works.  I'm writing on my phone from a hotel in the middle of (very pretty) farmland, without wifi, of course.  This one blog post is eating  up my entire data package, I'm sure. 

So, let's see if I can get pics in this post.. sorry, no inlinkz linky, I left the password to my account at home. If you want to share your progress this week,  please leave us a link in the comments and I swear,  I'll get off my lazy vacationing a** and put together a real post for next week.  Xoxo.

    I also happen to have posted four days in a row, so if anyone is interested in seeing those post, please take a look back. I'm trying to post more often, though I doubt I will post more than twice a week usually. I was just on a roll this week. This is Terri from Hexy Lady.

My Travel Quilt Story

**ETA-- Check out my completed Travel Quilt #3 here**

I don't know about you, but I check my blogger stats a couple times a day.  It's nice to see how readers find me, who has linked to me, and where they are.  In the last week though, there's been a gap, a hole.  I usually have at least a couple hits a week from readers in Japan, this week-- none.  Of course with such tragedy, I can't expect them to take time out (and use valuable electricity) to check in on my little ol' blog here, but still, the absence makes me worry about them even more.  I was thinking about how I can go back to  posting more about quilts but still satisfy my need to talk about Japan.. 

Victoria took this great photo of me at her retreat last weekend and I've wanted to write a post about it, and then it clicked, "Oh Yeah~" let's go back to the quilt that started me off on my EPP obsession..
Here we go.  Travel Quilt #1, aka "Ayane's Star" See, I was going to J…

12 Hexies Blog Hop!!

Hexies!  Hexies!  Hexies!

What's not to love?  Even though I fell in love with EPP through 60 degree diamonds, once I started to hex seriously, I found that they're so soothing.  When basted to templates, they are perfectly contained little morsels of my favorite fabrics, portable, pleasing, playful..

Today is my day on the 12 Hexies Blog Hop and I've got a little tutorial for how to make a pin cushion with just 8 hexagons.  Though this is my tutorial, I can't take credit for coming up with the shape/pattern of the pin cushion.  I actually saw it on flickr ages ago, and in the comments of that pic, the poster referenced another blog post that she was inspired by.  Really folks, it's 8 hexies joined together.. there are only so many ways to do it.  But they go together so nicely and you can turn them into a really substantial pin cushion, so let's have a go at it--
First cut and baste your hexies.  I'm using 3 5/8" squares on 1 1/2" paper hexagon …

Monday Morning Star Count, November 30, 2015

I have not even sewn one stitch this week.  I did manage to find my cutting table and mat, and it was nice to see them after what seemed like too long, but I didn't cut anything.  I didn't press anything.  I didn't do much other than ponder how I will organize my new space.

If you have stitched though, please tell us!
