April Hexies Should be posted

The last day of April has arrived and all your partners hexies should be posted and your partner notified by e-mail that they have been sent. Please partners, respond to the e-mail so the sender is aware that you have received their message.

I will be posting the new lists tomorrow.

Hello all! My life has been a mess and I am trying very hard to catch up with my hexis!. Anne-Mette, I am working on yours and should be in the mail within a week. Linda McClymont (feb. swap) Yours will be mailed within a couple weeks. I would like to hear from Frances Keith who is my April partner. I can not seem to find your address.

Lots of flowers

Nice surprises in the post while I was away, these 2 flowers from Christine came for the February swap

and also these 2 from Ros for the March swap.

I spent a lot of time in the car while we were away, that gave me plenty of time for some hand sewing and I made these 2 flowers for Christine which will be on their way very soon!

Getting Caught Up

Mid-January I had the flu which turned into pneumonia, which turned into a week long hospital stay. Even after I seemed to be better, I have been exhausted! So anyway, I have finally caught up with my hexies. I just put in the mail hexies to Kate (January), Elizabeth (February), and Patti (March). I am now working on Aprils so I don't fall any more behind. Thanks for being patient and understanding with me.

April hexies for Jorie Williams

They are wrapped up and ready to go and I will be heading to the post office tomorrow.

My computer crashed and I am still waiting to get a new one and hoping to be able to safe as much as posibly from the old one.
But I need your help with a link. I am printing the hexagons and had a link, where I could find the 1" hexagons for printing. Can you help me with this link?
It would be great.

Thank you so very much for your quick answers :-) (and links). I knew, there would be some helpful quilters to help. Now I will be able to go on sewing ....

April Flowers Received

I arrived home from Sydney late last night to open a package from Lynette.

Thank you Lynette. They will look amazing in my garden.

March flowers in and out

Here are my lovely little cherry blossoms which I received from Anne-Mette (I'm very slow to blog about it, sorry)

And these are my March flowers, which I only posted out Tuesday this week (partly because of Easter holidays and partly because I'm a little slack).

I absolutely PROMISE to get my April flowers in the post before the end of the month!!!
I've finally caught up on my swaps: Bek (Feb Inchy Swap), Maggie (Mar Inchy Swap), Suzzie (Feb/Mar Forum Swap) and Jeanette (Mar/Apr Forum Swap).

I'm so sorry I was late again.

Best wishes to everyone,

To Beverley and Terry, from Barbara

On Feb 6th, just on 2 months ago I posted these two hexies to Beverley in U.S.A. but I don't know what's happened to them.  Have they arrived ?  Weren't they suitable even though they are in the chosen colours. Am I using the wrong e-mail address in my attempts to contact Beverley. I just don't know and that is most frustrating.
But my March hexies were posted just one week ago today  to Terry and should be there soon .  A message to Terry to let here know they were on there way was answered promptly so I really, really, really hope she likes her red, white and blue.

Swap Integrity Pledge

This was a pledge started by Tiffany at Lower Columbia Modern Quilting and Crafting
I think it is one pledge that we should all take so that every swap we participate in brings joy and happiness to our partners.

I, {insert your name here}, pledge to do my very best to have integrity and honesty in my swap commitments.  To be on time, to participate in discussions, and to communicate if I am going to be late or unable to complete my obligations to my swap partner.

Here are the flowers I sent to Janet in the Yukon. They have been received and liked.
