March hexies have arrived!!

These are the wonderful March hexies I received from Joke in the Netherlands.  I know they were late but they were worth waiting for.  Thank you Joke and thank you also for the extra fabric, which I can use to make a couple more flowers for my garden.
I still haven't received my April flowers but am not expecting them now, as my swap partner for April has since left the swap, ah well, I will make my own April flowers!
I sent my June flowers to Paula in Australia earlier this week so I am now ready to start on my July flowers, it feels good to be up to date!

I can't believe I was so far behind . . .

. . . but I think I'm caught up now!

Hexies went in the mail this afternoon to the following people:

Leslie Legros (February)
Cynthia Landry (March)
Edda Hauksdottir (April)
Erica Tahbonemah (May)
Lorraine Tyler (June)

Now that I've received July's list, I can get my hexies out to Doris Gloger in the next week! 

I apologize for not getting these out sooner!  Maybe now I can stay on track!!

Have a great day!


Flowers received for May and June

Flowers for May and June have arrived.
Those little hexagon flowers do bring happiness.  I have received very pretty flowers from Joke R and from Kathryn L.  They both very kindly sent a gift of fabric to make another flower.  I do not have a photo as hubby has my camera right now.  That leaves only one month of missing flowers - April from Jacqueline M
Thank you so much ladies, I love them all and I am so happy.

More pretties

These are my June flowers from Ros.  I just love how dainty the pretty fabrics are.  Thanks Ros!

MIA Hexies

It saddens me to say that many people have dropped out of the swap over the last few months due to the disappointment of not receiving their monthly hexies. Some poor recipients are missing 5 months of hexies.

I have made a few extra hexies this month to send to people who did not receive hexies from their partners over the last few months and probably will never receive them.

While I try to replace all missing hexies, it is quite an extra work load for me. I have been thankful for the hexie angels that made me many to distribute in cases like these but even with these I am way behind. I do wait until I have exhausted all avenues of communication and realise that these people shall never receive their hexies.

Sometimes our lives get complication and very busy. If you feel you cannot make 2 hexies a month and have them posted and make contact with your partner, then e-mail me and I will remove you from the lists. You may wish to leave altogether or just for a couple of months. I ask you to complete a lll outstanding hexie flowers, up to and including the month you finish.

On the rare occasion, hexies can go missing in the post. Important things to know about posting your hexies. Anything you post overseas must have a customs declaration form. A letter can be held up for weeks if there are other objects inside that customs have to check. Make sure you declare everything inside the envelope i.e 2 paper/fabric hexagon flowers, card

We quilters and crafters are a great bunch of people who care. Make your hexies with love and send them as a precious gift to your partner each month. You will be surprised how 2 little hexies can bring so much joy.

Happy hexagoning, Jane x

To all of you lovely "Girls"

I have been a part of this swap for a year now, just counted my hexi's - 25 - and I have startet to put the flowers together.

Watching soccer european championship in television with my husband, I started. Very nice time in the living room, my husband shout at the television (the players) and I shout when I get the needle in the fingers.

BUT - what I really want to say is:

Im proud, that so many "girls" are being a part of my quilt, and proud to be a part of all your projects. I allready have a name for my quilt - Flowers of the World - that sounds good i think. :-)

I know I know, i need lots of flowers - so thank God - I have to stay in this Swap for years. I wish you all a good Summer and all of you down under a good Winter.

June Swap List

Hi everyone, the June swap lists have been e-mailed. It was sad to see Linda G, Jorie W and Elizabeth K leave the swap. Thank you for your flowers and you know you are always welcome back.

Please remember to contact your partner and tell them the status of your hexies. I know life can get busy sometimes but it is important to get your flowers done every month and off to your partners. I know I get excited when mine arrive.

Take Care, Jane

From Heather to Barbara

These pretty Hexies arrived today from Heather in the U.K. 

Winter has arrived here but my growing pile of hexies makes me think of Spring.  So thank you, Heather.
