The first stitches of 2011.

I hope that you and yours had a lovely holiday season and are enjoying the new year. I've been a dangerous combination of lazy and busy, accomplishing almost nothing creative in the past month or so. Would you believe I can't remember the last time I bought fabric? For shame!
My UFO pile has grown to monstorous portions, so it's time I get back in the swing of things.  I was invited to join a talented group of girls over at the Bee Hexed In bee on flickr.
Last night, I pulled fabrics for Brooke's block,

and made hexagons for the first time in a long while.
My right thumb is really out of shape!

Speaking of hexagons, I haven't given up on the hexagon charm quilt, but I have to be honest, I really got sick of working on it and it's been intentionally neglected. I need to get it out and take stock of where I am. I have more than enough hexagons made, I just need to sew them together. Maybe some longer stitches are in order.

Before I go, I want to apologize for not responding to comments and not reading your blogs lately. I've read every comment I've received and appreciate them all, I've just been swamped. You guys are the best!
