One Flower Wednesday and Other Stuff

I have been busy with my hexagon quilt. Last Friday I showed you the inside of this block. This is all I got done this week. Once the piece gets bigger, it takes longer to go around. Six more hexies are needed for each round. This is where I am at now. Still lots more to go.

It has been snowing every few days since the beginning of the year. My backyard is covered in snow. I took these shots from the doorway. It is too icy today for me to walk outside. I am too afraid of falling. It's dark and gloomy. The snow just keeps on falling - tiny flakes that are almost invisible.

I started a new BOM. I know that I promised myself I wouldn't do that, but I just couldn't resist this cute block. I am going to do it all in black and white.
And speaking of black and white... Here is Oscar. He kept putting his nose into my camera lens until I finally relented and took his photo. Now he is purring! He's so vain.

My internet provider is acting up lately. If it seems that I have not been visiting your blog or not leaving any comments, it is because I only have a few short moments when it works. If this doesn't get better soon I guess I will have to phone the cable company and find out what is going on.

I think that BOM will be spectacular in black and white!
A little snow every few days here too. I wish the sun would come out and make the ice melter work faster.

I love that BOM and I know what you mean about starting another project. But, it is awful cute.

Love those Hexies Hetty! I also love the black and white bom. My goodness you have been busy. I guess when the weather is yucky the best thing to do is stay inside and quilt away!

Midas says hi to Oscar!

Great hexagon star! And I love the black/white stitchery with blocks around it. Very original!
Great winter pictures. We haven't had snow for quite a while now.
