Post Vacation: Hexagons and a Bee Block

We were on vacation at Norris Lake, Tennessee last week and we had a great time! Due to the vacation home being full of family and friends I had my hands free much of the time. Trust me, I love Eli to pieces, but having time to sew was pretty nice! These little hexies rested on the swim platform of our boat... and that gorgeous clear-green water... man its to die for! And who knew Tennessee was so stinkin' HOT in June? It was over 90 every day plus humidity. Actual photos of US on vacation will be next post, I promise~

This block is for Katie - she had June in the Sew New To Me VQB. That cute car fabric is from TARGET, of all places. Katie snagged some of the Liberty of London mens boxers and chopped them up to have blocks made! Clever, eh? She's going to use all these blocks to make her 4 year-old son a quilt! I predict he's going to love it! She asked for 10.5" modern blocks like these and these. Said block is going out in the mail today Katie!

You did such a great job! I so wish I had bought more of the boxers! I just bought one pair for an unknown future project!

Cute car print, though traffic looks pretty congested, I can almost smell the exhaust ;)

We were in TN at the same time! I grew up in Clinton which is right next to Norris. I was home that week to go to my class reunion! Too bad we couldn't get together. I am happy you had a great time. I grew up going to Norris and it is a beautiful area.
