Desert flower

Thanks for bearing with my on my impromptu bloggy summer vacation. Between the heat, travel, family and just being crazy busy my poor corner of the internet got a bit neglected. Fortunately the making of the hexies plugs along (I'm somewhere in the neighborhood of 385 triangles finished and many more in progress). I even had time to photograph another batch on a recent visit to my parents in the Pocono Mountains. 

I'm in Phoenix, AZ today where the high is a mere 106F/40C. At least we missed out on last week's 117 degree day! (Though we were in Austin, TX where the temps were barely more than 10 degrees cooler.) Oddly enough, even after all this heat I'm not ready for fall. Endless summer, baby. Here's a beach hexie for you. The sand feels at home in the desert where I am today.

The fabric is a scrap of an Amy Butler print that I got from Handcraft Workshop, a lovely sewing shop in Mount Airy. I highly recommend a stop in if you're in the Philly area.

Hexie count: 37
