Some years ago I made a box with very small hexagons appliquéd on as decoration.

What would be better keeping my Hexies now than this box?

Hello everyone! and apologies

Hello Inchy-swappers!

My first post here is one of apologies.  I am behind with my hexagons due to unexpected deadlines and illness.  I've never fallen behind in a swap EVER before and I'm feeling rather guilty.

This is a quick post to let you know that I've finally caught up and your hexagons are in the post.

Janet (Caribou Crossing Chronicles) your new, replacement hexie is in the post.  I really botched Janet's hexagon but ran out of time over Christmas to re-make it :o)

Leslie (Les Quilts) your hexie has been posted this week too.  Sorry that it has been posted so late in January.  I very relieved that it is STILL January though *grin*.

Joanne (Possum Blossom Patchwork) your thank you hexie is winging it's way to you.  Thank you so much for the hexagon templates!

AND, I've already done my February hexie for Edda Bjork Hauksdottir (Solblomaakur) and it has been posted too!  YAY!!!

A big THANK YOU to Hanne Wolff (Hannewolff) for your gorgeous pink hexagon (January swap).  Hanne's hexagon was sooo perfect.  I feel very embarassed at how amateur my own hexagons are *grin*.

I'll post some piccies soon, thank you everyone,

Butterflies from Elizabeth

Today I received my February hexi from Elizabeth Kenny. Elizabeth used fabric that reminds her of water and our gardens need lots of water. She also sent me a butterfly that will definitely find it's way into my garden. I think I will sew it onto the centre that way it won't get lost in the realm that is!!!
Thanks Elizabeth and I am glad to be one of your first...
Cheers Geniene

Bee surprised

A surprise arrived in the post today from Elizabeth K. Elizabeth had made me a thank you flower and added a little bee. She said, "We need bees to keep our gardens growing from year to year". How true. Thank you Elizabeth, I love the flower and the busy bee.

January Flowers

My January flowers for Joke and Joann at Possum Blossom Patchwork. Sorry ladies, I sealed them up and promptly forgot who's was who's. Hope you each like the one you get! lol This one is made from a lovely batik, much brighter than the picture:)
This was an attempt at having each petal the same. Unfortunately, I messed up and ended up with three petals each of two different patterns. I still think it looks nice and I hope the recipient loves it anyhow.

January hexagon arrived from Australia to Denmark

I got this beautiful January hexagon from Quilt Jane.
Thank you so much.

February List

I will be e-mailing the updated members list and draw list out today (The kids go back to school next week so it will be hectic around here). Please delete or throw out any old lists.

A member has asked me to prepare the draw list for a couple of months as she is going on holidays, so I have picked partners up to June 2011.
Please contact me if you don't get the e-mail with the attachments. I will be sending the lists in both Word Document and PDF format.

Leslie's January flowers

Good Morning all! 
This is really cool!  I like the idea we can post on here too, will give Jane a bit of a break I think.

This one is going to Janet at CaribouCrossingChronicles.

This is my Thank You hexie going to Joanne at Possum Blossom Patchwork

I'm looking forward to receiving my next group of hexies too, only received
December and Jane's welcome flower to date!

In the post

For all our new members, your welcome hexies and sample packs from Joanne have been posted. Due to the flooding in my town and the rest of Queensland, your parcels may take a bit longer.

Beautiful flower from Jorie

Thank you Jorie!  The colors are perfect.  I'm really enjoying seeing my garden grow!

Two for You and one for me

My lovely flower from Lene.
Lene and I are friends, and we decided to swap ekstra flowers i november, as we first got on the list from December. And the I had to make another one for Lene in December!!!

Hexagon sample pack

I made this Hexagon flower for Joanne from Possum Blossom Patchwork to thank her for the paper and card hexagons sent to me earlier. I like the flower fabric of the petals - they remind me of spring, which we are looking forward to very much here in Denmark.

Jorie's January Flower

I have finally posted Jorie's flower!

I have had it in the envelope for a week, but the flooding here in Queensland made me postpone sending it until I thought it would get through without to many delays.

A Hexy Flower History

First Jane sent me a 'welcome' flower....

so I sent her a 'thank you for welcoming me' flower.....
but then I realised I'd pulled the papers out so I sent Jane a 'sorry I pulled the paper out' hexie....
then Jane sent me a 'December Swap' hexie......

then I sent a 'December swap' flower to Joanne

And that was 2010 in my Inchy Hexie Flower Swap world.  Thanks Jane I love being part of this group.
