October flowers from Croatia

Gorgeous hexie flowers arrived for yesterday all the way from Simone in Croatia.

A lovely postcard as well...that unfortunately naughty little dog got hold of, hence the missing top right corner!

Thank you they are really lovely.

Hexies coming and going

I've received these great hexie flowers from Natasha (Canada), Shannon (USA), and Mommaduck and Ellie K (from Australia).

Thank you all, they are all great. My hexie stack is growing into a fantastic "cottage garden" of all sorts of different florals and colours.

Also, I'm pleased to say that my October hexie flowers for Karen will be posted tomorrow. Just scraping in by the end of the month (again)!

October hexies from Ingrid E

Thank you, Ingrid, for the bright flowers you sent for October. They are the cheerful colors that I love. The postcard made it easy to locate your island in relation to Kobenhavn, which is the only place in Denmark that I have visited. Many thanks, Kathie L in Allentown, PA, USA

November flowers from Anette

Two lovely flowers came yesterday from Haderslev to Samsø.
Thank you Anette,they are just as I want them to be.

Farewell Hanne W

It will be sad to say good bye to Hanne. She has been with the group for a long time. Hanne will be hanging up her hexies at the end of the year. Hanne has kindly committed to making her November and December hexies before she leaves. In Hanne's e-mail she also mentioned that she had not received her September and October flowers from Cynthia and Marta. I know Marta bowed out this month But I am not sure if Marta sent her last hexie. I will fix that up for you Hanne.

Finally ......

.... I'm getting back on track!

@Sunny S -- Your October hexies will be going out in the mail tomorrow morning!
@Nita B -- Your September --- yes, September -- hexies will also be going out in the mail tomorrow morning!

@ Barbara T.  -- Sorry I'm so late in letting you know I did receive your replacement hexies for August.  Thank you so much! 

@Anne-Mette -- Thank you for the October hexies!  A wonderful addition to my Civil War Hexie Garden.

Now I just need to wait for the November list so I can get moving on the hexies and maybe, just maybe, get them mailed out in time!

Happy Quilting!

Hexies from Canada

These wonderful hexies arrived a few days ago from Coralie in Canada -sorry I only just got around to posting a picture of them. They are great, I love the fussy cutting on the pink one and this is my first purple one. Thankyou so much Coralie, I love them and they will look great in my hexie garden.

September Hexie Flowers arrived

Beautiful hexie flowers and lovely goodies have arrived from Rosalie H. My quilting group oohed and awed over them. Thank you! Coralie in Canada

Welcome hexies received

Lovely welcome hexie flowers were received some time ago from Leslie L. Thank you so much.

October Hexies sent

Two hexagon flowers were sent to Pat B September 30. I hope you receive them soon. I have been making duplicate flowers to keep myself, as I make them for my swap partner, to help my garden grow and I discovered that one of the ones I made was smaller than it should be. I could not find a source of hexie papers locally so I printed off the internet then ironed freezer paper on to make them stiffer. I guess it shrank it - I don't know. I have now got a good supply of papers gotten on a trip and I will make hexie flowers to replace those I sent out to my partners in August and September. Just in case they were smaller also. They will take a while, but I will get them to you.

Coralie in Canada

My latest hexies

It has been awhile since I have been able to post, but I wanted to share these beautiful hexies I have been receiving:The pairs from top to bottom are from Heather of The Patchwork Heart, in the UK, (the second pair I regret to say that I lost the envelope for who they were from, and it isn't written on the back. Please comment so I can thank you!), Lynette in Australia, and Susan in Mississippi. Thankyou ladies, they are all so amazing! I can't wait to put them all together to make something fantastic.

I have fallen a bit behind in my own hexie making, but I am back on the bandwagon and stitching them as fast as my fingers will let me! If you are waiting on hexies from me, rest assured they will be on their way soon!

October hexies for Joke

Here are the flowers I sent in Joke in the Netherlands this week. I hope they make a swift trip across the Atlantic to one of my favorite European countries. I've never been there in tulip season, but hope to one day. Best wishes Joke, Kathie L in Allentown

Thank You for All the Wonderful Comments!!

Thank you to everyone who took the time to leave a comment about the back side of a hexie!!  I hope it helped others as much as it helped me!!  I was so worried that the flowers I was sending would be inadequate but I see now that it's all good!!  Your comments were all so great!!!  Kris

Question for All the Hexie Makers!!

Hi Everyone -

I was taught to make a square and then wrap the square around the hexagon template and sew it down and then sew the hexagons together.  But as I receive flowers from my partners, I see that most of you have cut the piece of fabric into a hexagon itself and then sewed it around the template.

My question is - does it matter?  And if it does, what measurements do I cut the fabric in order to wrap around the template properly??

Thanks to anyone who has the time to leave a comment!!  I look forward to your answers!!


My October Hexagons Arrived Today

from Patty Carbaugh down in Florida!!

Thank you, Patty!!  They are gorgeous and will be a wonderful addition to my garden!!

Beautiful Hexagons !!!

I received three gorgeous hexagons from Rosalie today.  
She is VERY good at making them, and sent a cute little fabric remnant and a card with a kookaburra on them all the way from Australia !!!!

Thank you Rosalie 
I am so happy ;)

Farewell Marta and Jennifer D

Sadly Marta and Jennifer D will be leaving the swap. I have not indication from Marta if she has made her hexies for September and October. I have e-mailed Marta and have had not response. So if you are reading this post Marta, please tell us if you have sent your last hexies.

From Paula in Melbourne Australia!

Here are hexies from Paula O'Connor in Melbourne Australia! They are very Shabby Chiq! They look wonderful in my garden! Thank you Paula!
The dingo book mark is cute, but makes me think about the movie with Meryl Streep about the Dingo which stole and killed her character's baby, was based on a true story if I remember correctly.
     It is a long weekend here in Canada, it is our Thanksgiving!
Enjoy your weekend where ever you are! 
Take care, Leslie

Thursday, October 6, 2011

I posted these on Monday and they only had to go to another suburb in Melbourne so I'm hoping they have arrived and that my October partner Doris likes them.

I'm patiently checking the letterbox each day hoping my September hexie flowers will turn up.  Hopefully my partner is just running late and no evil hexie thief has stolen them.

Again huge thanks to Jane for organising this hexie flower fun for us.  I love being part of this group.
