Hexie and Horse

After a late night (meeting) last night and 100s of follow-up phone calls this morning I decided to chill out and have a quiet afternoon ....
I did two things I haven’t had a chance to do for a while — make a hexie flower and ride my horse….I thoroughly enjoyed both activities!! (my first new hexie-flower for quite a while L)
Don't you just love it when you can combine two interests!
I’ve also finished my Quilter’s Poem, something to look at when I don’t feel like cleaning windows and just want to sew!

I’m still working on Block One of the friendship Stitchalong I’ve joined – I hope to complete it tonight and send it on SOON!!
Until next time, happy stitching everyone, and thank you for visiting,

Indeed: it is wonderful to be able to combine two great things: horses and hexies. Enjoy them a lot: your hexie looks and so does the nose of your horse! ;-)

Wonderful flower! Wasn't hard to sew while riding the horse - lol! Ok, question. What is the Friendship Stitchalong?

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

boy are you a "trusting" soul---putting that Hexie right there--surprised the horse didn't grab that and eat it--thinking it was a real flower!!!!
Hugs, Di
