What have I Done This Week


I have covered some half inch hexagons,


made 5 Klosjes, bringing my total to 93,


made some sausage rolls to have with soup on the weekend,




have almost finished the applique on border number two of Swan Lake,


and had the rare pleasure of seeing son number two dressed up in a suit!

Delicious looking all of it. Son number 2 looks wonderful in his suit. Much prefer to see a man in a suit. Those little hexes look good and Swan Lake is just so gorgeous. I am loving your colours.

You've been VERY busy! Those sausage rolls look fabulous! I love your Swan Lake.
What a handsome man!
I see that my newest post doesn't show up on your feed either. Any idea? This is the first time this has happened to me. Must be a glitch w/blogger... or maybe I have not done something properly. Love your hexies! :)

Robyn said...

Hi Sue-Anne,
I've been thinking of you today.

I wondered how your shoulder is going and I was doing a little bit of Klosj-ing so I was thinking of other Kloshers :-)

Love what you've done and your son looks very handsome and very happy too.

The sausage rolls are making me drool and so is that stunning quilt... Wow!!

Wow great production !
You started your hexies bag ? I have choose only neutrals...perhaps too much !!! I love your choice of fabrics.
Now, I don't know if I continue with my first choice.... aaaaaaaargh !

Great hexies! Loving the applique quilt. Don't handsome sons make you feel proud!

Tineke said...

O, you had a great week! Good to take a picture of your handsome son in a suit....I should have done it three years ago at the graduation ceremony. It might take a loooooooooong time before I get the chance again.
Enjoy your soup!

Mayleen said...

You have gotten quite a bit done this week and as an added bonus, got see your son dressed up! Looking forward to seeing your little hexies made into the bag. I went to a shop here that I thought carried the purse frames but totally forgot to check for them when I got there! Too many other goodies to distract me, I guess I will just have to go back!

Karen said...

Lots done at your house this past week. You have quite a variety of fabrics on your hexagons. Some very interesting ones. And I have told you before that I really like your applique project but it is worth telling you again. I like your applique project very much.

Marieke said...

Wow! For your son! ;-) I always like a man in a suit (well, not all of them, come to think of it, but you know what I mean). I just love your fabric-choices: for the hexies, for the klosjes (especially the left top one) and your swan lake! Can't wait to see the end result on that! Enjoy your weekend!

Lori said...

What a fantastic week!! You have a good looking son too. Isn't it nice to see them dressed up?

Notjustnat said...

I think you did a lot this week. Yes, how is your shoulder? Hope it's getting better. What a handsome son. I bet he know you were going to post it on your blog! Hugs Nat

Barb said...

The Swan Lake border is coming along fantastic. I love those little hexagons! It's going to be a spectacular heirloom for sure. 8)

PS Showing a picture of your sausage rolls is just plain mean. They look so good!!! And my post-hemorrhoidectomy diet is so restrictive right now. Can't have anything too binding or too cleansing, and I have to count fiber grams like a maniac. Sigh, they look really really yummy.

Broderie and The Kingston Girls said...

all the pictures look so yummy in such different ways. love all the things you are sewing, the sausage rolls look really good and very tempting! and well a man in a suit!

Karen said...

You have had a busy week Sue-Anne and such a handsome man in a suit!

Hihi, mothers and sons, especially dressed in suits, they make you all wobbly inside don't they?! My son has his birthday Wednesday next: 25!! How time flies, still remember the day he came upon this earth: 35 cm and 1210 grams. Now 188 cm tall and ever so handsome in his suit hihi!! Those saucage rolls look yummy!! Happy sewing, hugs, Daniëlle

Elyte said...

Caylee @ Domesticity Evolving said...

I just love your Swan Lake quilt. I can't wait to see it finished. After seeing yours, I had to order a Dancing Dollies pattern just to have something to aspire to someday. Sausage rolls look very yummy, hope you'll share the recipe here some time.

Leanne said...

I am still amazed with your swan lake quilt and number 2 brushes up well LOL. It is nice to see our boys looking smart every now and then.
