Weather Hexies - Week 8

It was a beautiful day yesterday.  I rode my scooter to my Tuesday morning Quilting Group.  It was the first time I was able to get over there on my scooter since before Christmas.

I also went to the library.  And on my way home I stopped off at the mall.  I know it is a bit optimistic, but I bought a packet of Arugula seeds.  Don't worry.  I won't plant them for a while.  But I wanted some Arugula last year and I couldn't find any.

I also bought a bunch of tulips.  Just because.

And here is my week 8 hexie rosette.

This is for the week of February 19 to 25.

5.8C   16.5C   14.6C   1.2C   6.9C   6.2C   12.8C

No freezing daytime temps.  Incredible!   But that should change in the next couple of days.  Tomorrow night we are supposed to get snow   Yikes!  The Friday morning rush hour should be a mess.

My sewing machine is fixed.  It's just perfect!  I am catching up on some of my projects.

I am linking up with Sarah did it.

Weather Hexie Week 7

I finished another weather hexie.  This is week 7 for me.  We had a few chilly days, but for the most part it wasn't too bad.

-1.8C    -0.8C    5.7C    9.6C    4.8C    -0.4C   4.5

My sewing machine was not working.  But then Deb, told me about Larry.  He fixed my machine many years ago, but I had lost touch with him.  Deb gave me his new location.  I took my machine in to have him take a look at it.  He called me today and says I can come and pick it up.  Thanks Deb!

Many Hexies

I thought I would show you my hexie project.  I still have lots to do on this.  I am just making it up as I go along.  For the past month or so I have not worked on it much.  My eyes were giving me problems, but now everything seems to be okay again.  I plan to work on it this weekend.  It's a long weekend for us.  Family Day is on Monday.  I am using a white on white background and a variety of scraps for the coloured hexies.  This is a fantastic project for using up scraps!

Sarah of sarahdidit asked for anyone who was working on some English paper piecing to join her and show their work.  I don't know if this qualifies, but I am going to link up to her blog anyway.

Feeling Under the Weather

I have been feeling a bit under the weather this week.  I don't know if it is because of a new medication my doctor prescribed, or something I ate, or a bug of some sort.  But it has not been a great week.

Keeping My Mom Warm

Meow!  It's soooo cold out.  And it is snowing.  Yikes!  I don't likes snow.

'So I will go and sleep with Mom.  I's sure she is cold too.  So this is the least I can do for her.

I loves sleeping with her.  I loves her.  She only has a hospital bed, but that means we can be closer.  As long as she doesn't move all night, I is comfortable.  Prrrrrr.

And the snow scares me.  And the cold too!  This is the best place to be.

Weather Hexies

The temperatures have been all over the place the past few weeks.  And my sewing machine isn't working.  So when I saw Sarah's temperature hexies I fell in love.  They are done in roasettes,  One hexie for each day of the week.  The colours are based on the daily temps. They are all hand stitched - so no machine is needed. Sarah has been doing them for a long time.  But I just couldn't resist.  So I started with January 1st.  I now have 5 rosettes made and another one is coming along nicely.  Mine are all based on the metric system.  Celsius as opposed to Fahrenheit.  But it works.  I haven't chosen a background fabic yet.  But I have marked them with pins so I will remember where they go.

I made a long scarf a few years ago.  Sorry I can't find it to show you.   It was also based on the weather - a few rows each day based on the temperatures.  I really enjoyed making it.  But knitting is not my forte, hexies are!  So why not, I asked myself.

Felline Friday. Groundhog Day! - No! No! That should be Felix Day!

Meow!  Oh, look. Mom!

The sun is shining,  I sees my shadow.  You knows what that means.

I predicts 6 more weeks of winter.  Well at least 6.  Maybe more.  Who needs a groundhog when you've got a Felix?
