Diamond Hexes

Day 17 already and in two weeks it will be 2018

I'm going to turn 60 next year, that just don't seem real. What is 60 suppose to feel like because I sure don't feel like I'm 59.
Oh heck, I always said I refuse to grow up....a kid at heart.

I said I would show more of Mom's Mosaic Diamond Quilt 

I have 19 now done and a boot load more.

I have found the fabric to use for the background hexagons.
It's one of the Grunges, a mix of grey's with hints of beige's.
A really good match I think.

Looks good doesn't it.

Then today before we went to take some firewood to my parents,
I started on one of the gifts I want to give to the girls.

It is bowl holders to use in the microwave. I have been wanting to make something like this for a least a couple years now.
I am tired of burning my fingers getting something out of the microwave or trying to do it with pot holders (that doesn't work well). 
I came across this method and liked it the best. 

They are reversible 

  And very easy to make.
Seeing how fabric and batting are a 100% cotton they are safe to use in the microwave.

I'll start with sets of 4 for each girl (and myself)


  1. Your hexies look great. I like the gray sashing. The bowls are on my list too. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  2. I don't feel 59 or 60 yet. But, I'm actually 72. Guess age really is just a number.

  3. I agree with Donna age is just a number I turned 65 this past year and I do not feel like it. When I think back to how "old" my grandma seemed when she turned 65 what she did, wore, etc she seemed old - I still do all the things I have always done, dress the same way and act the same way I did when I was 50 or youger

  4. That grunge background looks perfect!

  5. I too will be turning 60 next year and have decided that it doesn't matter. You are as old as you feel and I still feel 21.

  6. Where did you find the pattern for the bowl holder? I am needing to make some of those for gifts. Thank you so much! Merry Christmas!


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
