May flowers arrived

Last week i received my May flowers from Erica. Thank you so much Erica they are lovely.

Bright and Happy

Last week's mail brought me flowers from Jane K, my April swap partner.  Aren't these flowers just the cutest?  The purple with the happy flower center makes me smile.  And the music notes with the red center makes me want to dance - well, at least sway to the music.  Thank you so very much, Jane!

May Hexies for Anna

Theese 2 Hexies are on their way to Anna in Holland. I hope, they will grow in your garden.

I'm a slack swapper...

but I have been communicating with my partners if I haven't posted by end of month, so I guess that's a small saving grace.

I am overdue on sharing photos of flowers I have received, so here are my lovely flowers for April, from Anna.
Lucky me also got some fabric pieces!

And my May flowers from Lori, lucky me (again) got THREE flowers!!
I'm loving watching my garden grow.  It will be so beautiful when it makes a quilt.
It's also fun seeing people's interpretation of my colour preference.  I had a picture in mind when I wrote it, and some flowers turn up looking very different to that picture, but they are all so lovely and will make the final garden so much more varied that I could have imagined!  I guess that's part of the fun of having other people make us flowers, we get flowers that are totally different to what we would have done ourselves.

I'm still working on my April and May flowers for Susan and Celine.  I had the fabric all cut out and sat down to have a sewing session but then realised I'd run out of my hexagon cards so am waiting for my delivery from Possum Blossom.  Your hexagons are coming ladies, I promise!

Delayed April Flowers for Joke and May flowers received !

Hi Joke!  edits below added May 18, 2012.
I'm sorry these are delayed!  but here they are in Canada's red and white colours!
I will add the info you request on the centre.
I should have these in the mail to you in the next few days.
I tied myself up in a big project with little payoff, never again, yes Hubby, I learned my lesson!
Yes, my May flowers are next..... they will probably arrive after the end of May.
I also received these lovely flowers from Cynthia with this cute card!
Thanks Cynthia!
Dawn also sent me some lovely flowers for March, I think, but I have them hidden away securely as we are selling our house and I am showing off my sewing room, LOL, so didn`t bring them out for a picture.

For anyone new to the Hexie swap, please see the tutorials Jane has listed in the upper right corner!
I know we are all doing these in our own way, but maybe the tutorials will help in a small way.
You will see in my red and white flower above, I sew with silk thread so you can't see it, and join my petals together in a circle.
Then, with the centre part, I sew around the inside of the petals and then sew the last of the petal together.  I found those black bulldog clips or paper clips, help to hold the petals out of the way as I work along.
I also use the black clip to hold the 2 petals together as I add the new one to the circle, really helps to decrease my thumb pain and stiffness!
PS:  these instructions for making hexies are just what works for me.  There are in NO WAY meant to point fingers at anyone else's style or technique.
Just wanting to share and make mention to the tutorials Jane has posted on the above right of the blog.
If you are thinking I was complaining about anyone in particular, I sincerely apologize.  This was not my intention.
Take care, Leslie

May flowers from Anne-Mette

Thank you so much for the spring flowers, nice and bright on a rainy day!

I was just looking at the blog and noticed that Cynthia Landrie has made flowers for Kate Holestine, who I am supposed to send flowers to in May.  Cynthia's name is just under mine on the list and has accidentally gotten her partner wrong.  Should I make flowers for Doris Gloger ( who is her May partner)?  I have made flowers for Kate, but have not yet posted them.  I could make ones for Doris and then she would not be disappointed. Please let me know Jane.  That might be easiest.

March hexys received

I have received two lovely hexagon flowers from Jane, made by hexagon flower angels.  They are in place of March flowers which did not arrive.  My partner had left the swap, and her name was still included in the swap.    I do not have a picture, but will post one later.  Thank you Jane.
