December Hexies :)

These December hexies will be out in the mail soon - done with just an hour left in December and 2011 hehe.

Happy New Year!!!! Bek xxx

Nov, Dec Hexies in my Growing Garden!

Happy New Year!
Here are pictures of the November hexies from Janelle.  Aren't they cute with the Fussy Cutting?
Here are the December hexies I received.  The Christmas Hexies came right before Christmas from Lynette in Brisbaine!! These are very Shabby Chiq!  I love them!
I also wanted to share my hexies from the past year!
I have 15 in total!  I am in the initial dozen or so who joined up at the beginning of the Swap in November 2010!  (The light was poor and the picture is a little blurry!)
I just love it, I find it only takes 3 evenings watching TV to make 2 hexies.  Plus it helps me to use up my stash!
I have set up a container with 2.5 inch square packages I cut up from leftover fabrics from projects.  I find it so handy to quickly whip up a pair of these beautiful little flowers!  I have a few fabric packages to make some of my own hexies too.
Here's a toast to YOU as we continue on on 2012!

Have a very Happy Hexie New Year!
Take care, Leslie

Missing hexies maybe?

Hi everyone, hope you enjoyed a wonderful Christmas and I hope 2012 proves to be perfect for everyone of you.

Like Patti, I'm wondering if my hexies from Paula (November) or Jane (December) are on their way.  I'd hate you to have sent them and think me rude for not acknowledging them.  Hopefully I'm just being impatient (and I do realise December is not even over yet) and they will arrive safely.

It would be great if people could just quickly send off an email to their hexie recipient at the beginning of the month saying something like

Hi, I'm your swap partner this month and your hexies will be on their way next week...


or whenever it will be.  Or you could let the person know you are running a bit behind and their hexies will be late.  That way no one will be going out to their letterbox expectantly each day but will have some idea when their hexies will arrive and can keep a lookout for them.
I'm going to do this each month from now on.

I try very hard to be a good swapper and really want to do the right thing.  I think we all need to get together and sort out the issue of missing hexies before we lose more members or leave others disappointed.
I know we all want to see our hexie gardens grow in 2012.
Hugs
Melody

Surprise Hexies

I received these pretty hexies from Anna, just because.  And she also sent some fabric, which will no doubt become hexies, too.  Thanks Anna!!

November/December Hexies - Sending and Receiving

Jacqueline M - November Hexies --- I will be mailing your hexies out this week. I've had them done but the holidays hit (Thanksgiving and Christmas) and all good intentions went out the door!

Edda B-H -- December Hexies --- I assumed I had someone else's name and made hexies for them only to realize this morning that I was incorrect! So..... I will be remaking hexies for you and getting them out in the mail within the next week or so.

Frances K. and Natasha S. --- The roster indicates that you had my name for hexies for November and December. I wanted to let you know that I have not received anything yet. Hoping they did not get lost in the mail!

Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year!!

Thanks.

October, November & December Flowers from UK have you received them?

Rather concerned that I haven't heard anything from my October, November and December swap partners to whether they have received their hexagon flowers.  Please let me know if you have received your flowers as they were sent out a long time ago now and you should have received them.

Extra Flowers and Some from October

I wanted to thank the two gals that sent me flowers this month. Here are the flowers I sent.
The first one goes to Irene V. She said she likes surprises. I hope this is a surprise. The petals are made with a vintage sheet.
This next one goes to Doris G. She asked for pink floral with a white center. I made nightgowns for my daughters with this fabric. I hope it adds to your garden.

The partner I had in October got behind. But these were like an extra Christmas gift. I love them. Thank you!

False Comments

Someone called Derry has used Jane's site to post several comments.  This is merely an advertising ploy for her non-quillting site.  Normally it's great to read genuine comments then pop over and see what other people are doing in their handcrafts.  However these kind of nonsensical comments deserve to be ignored.  Hitting her link only boosts her numbers.

The day before yesterday I found these lovely pink flowers from Lisa in the mailbox along with extra squares for a couple of more flowers. Thank you so very much, Lisa the fowers are just perfect.
I would like to send a big thank you to Jane for organizing this swap and also say bye bye to all of you as I am leaving the swap. I hope my December flowers have arrived by now.

A 'Just because' flower from Elizabeth


The postman brought me the most lovely surprise - a flower made by Elizabeth. It is such a beautiful and thoughtful gift from a most loving and selfless person.

In her letter, Elizabeth tells me that she has received many memory flowers from the group accompanied by prayers and good thoughts. Elizabeth will embroider a 'C' for Christopher in the centre of each as she places them in her garden so she will know they were made for her precious boy.

Thank you Elizabeth.

Thanks, Janet


These lovely November hexies from Janet have traveled from Canada's Yukon Territory to Pennsylvania in the USA. They are lovely and bright. The fussy cut one (with frog legs, I believe) is outstanding. Thanks, Janet.

Thank You Marie & Anne-Mette

Thank you

Many thanks to Karen, Dawn,Anette and kathy who have sent me some beautiful hexies in memory of my son Christopher. I am going to embroider a "C " in the centre of them so I can know they were for him. I will photograph them when I have the energy to do so. Thank you to all those who sent messages of condolence via the village quilters blogspot as well. It has been a big help knowing so many people care. Elizabeth

P.S Jane your hexies for Dec will be in the post in a couple of days so watch for them

I sent these dark red and cream hexies to Dawn in England as my October giftie. Dawn let me know by e-mail that they had arrived safely.

Thank you Christine, Thank you Nita - from Barbara

Recently I had received these two lovely toning hexies for November from Christine. Thank you.  The colours are just beautiful.

And earlier I was given a very generous collection for September from  Nita.  I have good reason to remember the day the parcel with its sweet little Russian doll arrived.  So thank you Nita for all the gifts, the doll, the hexies and the cuppa'tea.  I am now going to have that cuppa.  So, Cheers, Nita !
