Well, no work on my hexagon today.  I am going to have to put it aside for a few days while I finish my granddaughters Easter dress.  I finished the smocking over the weekend and today it got a steam bath to set the pleats.  Here is a picture of it in its blocking stage.  Kelsey is a sweet little thing and loves all of the dresses Nonnie makes for her.  She can rough it up with the boys but enjoys being a “girly” girl too.  The dress is snow white with pastel Easter baskets.
This weekend my grandson Brendan had his 7th birthday.  He had a Davy Crockett birthday party.  The picture is of the coon skin cap cake that my daughter made.  She is very creative and talented but doesn’t know it. Since she has a hard time with the sewing machine, I think she is a great candidate for hand piecing.   She will be delivering our 3rd grandchild at the end of March.  I am working on a baby quilt so that is another reason the hexagon has been shelved.
