Where has the YEAR gone?

I see I haven't posted here in the last year. I think I have lost interest in posting. I have started many things, finished very few. My latest project is making Scarves for Special Olympics. I didn't get in on this until just a few weeks ago so won't get many made but it is something I look forward to doing for next year once they announce the colors. For now I will see how quickly I can get some done for this year.

I've finally got the hexies out again and made a little progress in January. See that red centered one? It has given me all kinds of fits!

One of my favorite things EVER

Does anyone know the pattern for this quilt? For almost 10 years, nearly every time I visit my daughter Deana, she puts this quilt on my bed. It was given to her by her mother-in-law around the time she got married. It is the perfect weight and yellow is my favorite color so it just makes me feel happy. The last time I was there, I took pictures of this one and the one I call "my quilt" which also came from D's mother-in-law. Maybe sometime I will show it off too. The little white square is the center of a block. I tried to get a close up so that it would be easier to tell what the block looks like.

*** Update***

I am sitting here this evening looking at several varieties of this quilt online thanks to my daughter Deana. She saw my post and sent me the links to them. It is called Pineapple Log Cabin.
I never even looked it up or asked her about it. I just took the photos and blogged about it. You have to love communication in the 21st Century. :) Thanks, D.

Pot Luck Dots

This is my offering for the GHQA2 Pot Luck. Congratulations to Valentina for winning. I can't wait to see what she does with all of them. She mentioned that she is thinking about embroidering the center dot with the person's name and location on them. I think that sounds really cool!
