I am the Keurig-master at Chez Depre

Every morning the Keurig gets a workout.   IMG_20131111_064134

It is timed to turn itself on a 5:00am..but trust me the on button is pushed way before that most days.

Several cups of coffee are brewed before Paul is out the door at 6am.

But I have noticed that apparently I am of a higher skill set then dear hubby…as I am the only person who knows how to fill the water reservoir on the Keurig. Note the water level in the picture indicated by the spoon, this is how I found the Keurig after someone brewed their cup and was out the door.  I have come home from being on the road for three days to the water even lower than it was this morning.   I have filled the water pitcher and placed it in front of the Keurig only to find it gently pushed to the side and another cup brewed.

He cracks me up.

But then again…I do not know how to take the garbage out either.  (ok I do..but I can count on one hand how many times I do this task a year).

So I continue to be the Keurig-master at Chez Depre as long as he keeps me in k-cups.   🙂

Looks like we have a cover for Pieced Hexies Deux.  Yes that is now officially the next book’s name. Title approval was obtained last week and this weekend my dear editor sent three cover choices to me for a looksey.

There is some tweaking that will be going on but I feel confident I will be able to share it with you soon.



And heads up…I will be kicking off preorders on …..BLACK FRIDAY! 

I have an awesome deal for you my faithful readers and friends.

I can also start sharing some of the book designs.

As you may know there are 10 new Pieced Hexies Designs in the book…and this time around we put SIX Star Patterns in the book!   These STARS are named (in alphabetical order) Bonnie, Cathy, Diane, Elaine, Linda, & Maggie.   Named for a group of very good friends and my Great Aunt Elaine.  Or Aunt Mitzie as we called her, who left this earth the day before her copy of the newly released Pieced Hexies hit her doorstep in Texas.   She was so proud and happy for me.   For those of you who are fbook friends you might remember her posts to my page ALL IN CAPS…lol…she loved her iPad.    I hope she can see the design in heaven.

I am currently working on a wall hanging that will show off 4 of the stars (well I am choosing to do one design four times at first) as applique to a pieced background.   As I have said your entire quilt does not have to be Pieced Hexies…..although I do have a new project as such in the works too.     The “to do” list is long.


So I better stop typing and get back to sewing.


And for the Molly Fans I have heard you.  Here is your “Molly Fix”.

She was slightly annoyed as she was in the midst of her early morning bone chew when I asked her to look up.

Enjoy your day,





p.s. Don’t forget to leave a comment if you haven’t already so I can get you approved in my comment spam-a-nator system.  There will be a giveway on Friday’s blog and your comment wont post until I approve…so if you get “preapproved” it will make life a tiny bit easier on Friday if you don’t mind.   Thanks!

    I know about filling the water reservoir on my Keurig too! Funny, mine even flashes a bright blue but no one seems to see it flash except me 🙂 So excited to know a new book will soon be out, I am happily stitching some pieced hexies for a Christmas quilt, planned to be finished for Christmas 2014 (way too many to go for this year. Yes, my To-Do list is waaay too long too. Thank you for your wonderful designs and inspiration 🙂

    I am hoping that I am approved. I am making pieced hexagons as fast as possible and doing some applique till a pesky tendinitis appeared in my wrist. Not much sewing going on at my house right now. (sad face)
