Thanks to Deb R

Two of these earthy country flowers are from my January swap partner, Deb R, and two are for my January partner ... Deb R again.

(Sorry to spoil the surprise Deb, but I always forget to post afterwards so I'm doing it now while it's fresh in my mind.)

Thanks Deb!

Hello and thank you to Rosalie!

First of all, I'd just like to say 'hello' and a Happy 2012 to everybody - this is my first hexiswap and I'm so excited to be here - I just LOVE hexagons!

Here are the lovely hexis from Rosalie - they are so beautiful, thank you so much.  Yours hexis should be winging their way from the west coast to the east as we speak.

Hello and Goodbye

I have just sent out the swap roster for February. I have created an Excel spreadsheet with your swap partners from Dec 2010. I did not know if everyone has Excel so I have sent in PDF format which everyone should be able to read on Apple or Windows with the free Adobe Reader application.

This month we have three new members. Please welcome:

  • Debra Henrie USA
  • Kate Lyons Holestine USA
  • Lara Geach AUS
We currently have 62 members so the Swap is definitely closed from today. 

Gemma Mateo from Spain will be saying goodbye this month. Thank you for being a part of the swap and helping our gardens grow.

Hexie Status - Sent and Received

First, thank you to Frances M-K for the beautiful hexies and card.   These were my hexies for November 2011.  My December 2011 hexies are still MIA.

Here's a sneak peek at my hexies I'll be mailing on Monday morning.  These are November '11, December '11 and January '12 hexies ... I won't say who's getting which ones so you'll be surprised.

Looking forward to the new year and all the wonderful hexies to come!~

Happy Quilting,

Eagan MN

My own hexis

I requested my hexi flower blocks to have black and white petals and red centers. I wasn't sure how that was going to look so I whipped up a couple.
They are definitely eye-catching! Now I'm anxious for my garden to continue to grow.
My hexagon should have arrived last week. I hope you enjoyed them Beverly

I'm new to The Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap this round and these are the first flowers I've ever created.

Welcome Hexies

I want to apologise as I am a bit behind in my welcome hexies and sample packs. If anyone has not received a sample pack, please leave me a comment below.

I do these as a simple gesture to welcome new members and unfortunately they are done only when I can fit them in to my busy work schedule.

Dec. Hexies

Many Many thanks Shannon for the beautiful Hexies!!

Inchy Flowers for November

I received these two beauties for November from Paula.  They were nicely wrapped in tissue paper, but I tore them right out of there.  :)  Thanks Paula, they are lovely!


Memory hexies for Christopher

I would like to thank all the wonderful people who have so far sent me one or two hexies in memory of my son , Christopher, who sadly died in late Nov. I have tried to send e-mails to those I can but if I haven't please take this as a BIG thank you. I am touched by the hexies and by your condolences. When I get the energy I will add a C to them all, ( as you can see one has it already as Paula did that for me on hers). They are all so beautiful and will fit into a quilt beautifully. As I associate butterflies with Christopher now a garden is the right place to have memories of this wonderful young man. I'm sure a butterfly or two will make it into my garden as well.

December hexies from Kris arrived in the UK

I received a lovely package from Kris in US for the last day of the year. I got 2 lovely hexie flowers as well as some spotty fabric to enlarge my garden and some cute hexie templates. Her patchwork card is really beautiful as well!
Here is a picture of her lovely package:
And if you want to see a picture of our beautiful Christmas surprise, our darling new daughter, you can head over to my blog.

November and December

It's all a bit of a blur really....

I posted on my personal blog that I'd received my December flowers the other week, but then found my real December flowers on the kitchen table and discovered the others were in fact my November flowers... So here are photos of both lots.

I love them all.  The sunflower one reminds me of some underwear I had when I was 18 which was blue gingham with sunflowers on it!!  And those owls are just so cute.  The pink and red ones for December are so pretty!  Red is very Christmasy and pink is my favourite colour.  So thank you ladies for some lovely flowers.

I posted my November flowers the week before Christmas and my December ones last Wednesday so I hope they all arrive safely soon.
