Hexagon fabric and Moki!

I went out shopping today and treated myself. To me a treat is walking around the store and loving a million things but making excuses why I shouldn't buy it, lol. But I did find a material to go with my hexagons and on sale, love those sales. I wanted to go with a dark tan, but this color works with the fabrics I am using and will give a little more color for the holidays. What do you think? I can't wait to start adding this to the outer edge, but need to rest my poor fingers.



Then I found some nice basic tan floral, always need lights to mix in with the darks and on sale, who can say no to a few yards.
I found the black fabric and thought it would be perfect for a border on a mermaid piece for my bathroom. So now I need to come up with a new idea and make one.



And last but not least, there is Moki, gotta love him.
I think my rug needs a repair, I made it about 30 years ago, does that make it an antique, lol.
He seems to like the hole, great place to stick his head into.

And to answer a few questions. The mini quilt on the bench is one I made up with scraps. Just sew some squares together, hand stitch with black floss, add a border and an easy table or bench topper;) And for the scrap eggs becoming hearts, I made some last year with crazy quilting. Another easy and fun way to use up scraps. You can see them Here!

One of these days, I am going to make a hexagon piece. I always enjoy seeing them but just don't take the time to make one.

I love the fabric choice for the hexagons! Thanks for pointing me in the direction of the hearts! Your rug reminds me of the one sitting in my bedroom that I've been meaning to repair!

Pleased to hear that you have been out and about and who could resist such beautiful material. As for young Moki..... well, you never know what might be hiding under your rug..... might be a water spout !

It's so good to see that Moki looks so happy :-) x x x

The fabric you found is perfect! So glad you talked yourself INTO buying it! ;-) Moki looks so cute with his head under the rug... is he sleeping like that? Love the wayned cotting on the wall too!

The weather vane fabric is so unusual and beautiful!
I loved seeing Moki! He's so stylish wearing your rug! I'm mean seriously, not every cat can wear and rug and pull off "The Look" like Moki can!
