Hexis are in the Mail

My partner for June should be receiving her Hexis soon. I hope she enjoys them. I started making them when it was very hot and decided to think about fall and cool off a little!

Changes to rosters and members list

Hi everyone, let's welcome Beverly to the group. I am sorry, she only sent me details this morning so I have given Bev my spot on the lists and I will now be 'the spare' filling in for anyone that leaves the swap before December or misses out on a hexie for whatever reason. If you have already started your July hexie for me don't worry I will gladly welcome them into my garden.

I have re-issued the lists so delete or throw our the old ones and keep this one on file.

I am still finishing off the last of the welcome hexies and then I will pack them off with some papers and do a massive mail-out. Thanks for your patience.

From Shannon to Barbara

All the way from Idaho to Australia, these lovely hexies from Shannon.  They are made from fabrics with lots of associations to her mother and daughters for Shannon so they've become rather special for me too.  They tell a story. I really like this style of sprigged print.  Thanks Shannon.
The  photo was taken in my usual place - on the living room window ledge. It's north facing so always has a good light, even on a bad day like today.  I smiled at the potato !  If I was told I could only eat one vegetable for the rest of my life it would be the potato.  So versatile. My family wouldn't agree with me - it's all stir-fries, and salads !

My garden

I received two amazing flowers from Narelle today! Thanks Narelle! Instead of only showing those two, I decided to spread them all out and show how well they all play together, and thank the entire group! This is such a great swap. Here is my garden:
♥ Jorie


Please note the following changes to the lists. I will not send out new lists at this stage in case there are more changes.

1. Swap Selection List : It is Paula not Paul O'Connor
2. Edda H would like her preferences changed to: Reproduction fabrics for petals, all the same colour or pink floral, all the same colour with solid white or white on white centres.

New Lists

Hi everyone, I have e-mailed to all the members a new swap roster and members list. Please read it carefully and e-mail me at with any corrections.

I must apologise in advance if I have given you a previous swap partner in the roster. It was less complicated to start again and have a revolving lettering system in place. I hope you understand.

The lists are in Microsoft Word Doc and PDF. Please look in your spam / junk folder if you have not received it or e-mail me and I will send again.

Happy Hexagoning!

P.S Ten of the 16 welcome hexies are complete. I will be posting them all soon.
