These beautiful hexies arrived this morning. I love how bright they are - just like the glorious weather we have here in the UK at the moment. Thank you!

July hexies received and sent

I have received beautiful hexies from Jane Kerr for July, thank you so much Jane they are lovely and look really good in my garden.  Sorry I haven't loaded my photos yet.

Also, I posted hexies for July to Debra Henrie in USA yesterday - delayed slightly by a stopover visit from the grandchildren.  Their daddy is away in Oman and mum was at work so we had fun with them.  Debra, I tried e-mailing you to let you know they had been posted but it bounced back, so maybe your e-mail address on the list is incorrect?

Just Because Hexies

It also appears, looking in my folder of photos, that I've been in the hexie swap for 12 months!!  WOW it doesn't feel that long.

Hexies from Croatia arrived

May Hexies from Stanislava Simon i Croatia got lost, but today I received these 2 new lovely Hexies. Thank you very much, Simona!
Hanne in Denmark

Many thanks Plus hexie flower thank yous.

Firstly I want to say a big thank you to those who left lovely understanding comments for me.  

I am still trying to get my prescription changed...who would have thought it would be so difficult, it is just a change of dosage amounts afterall, not overall dosage.  Anyway once changed and I start sleeping, may be I will be more up to concentrating.  have printed off some templates to start cutting out.

I have Three Large thank yous for some flowers.

Firstlky to Lynette in Australia for my May flowers.

Aren't these just fabulous?!

Secondly thank you to Patti for my June flowers and the lovely little card that I can use again.

These are great as well, and do have yellow centres despite the photo appearance.  They will also make a wonderful addition to my garden

Thirdly thank you to Marie from Denmark

The owl card is also great - very much what I feel like in the middle of the night...wide awake, but not functioning!

Hexies from Anna Schuring

Thank you Anna for the beautiful hexies and bonus fabric! 


From Quiltjane to Shannon

Thank you Quiltjane for making these for me. My partner way back in August left the group and did not make flowers for me before she left. So Quiltjane to the rescue. I love them, cool 30's fabrics. 
 Isn't this a fun card that she sent me? So summery!

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Thank You Anna Schuring

I received hexies from you today but not sure if you sent to the correct person.  They are lovely!!!! I'd be happy to forward them to the correct person if you'd like me to.  Just let me know. Jan

June Hexies for Joke

I just put your hexies in the mail today. I hope you like them! Hopefully it won't take too long for them to reach you.

The Cloak of Shame

I am currently wearing the cloak of shame I have got so far behind with the hexie flowers that I am thinking it might be better I pull out as of August until I have caught up.

I have no real excuse, I just can't seem to get myself motivated to do any hand sewing, cutting etc at the moment.  Whether this is due to the medication I am (now on highest dose, plus something else to counteract some of the side effects) or due to the absolutely rotten weather we are having here, but I really am struggling to get things done.  The flowers aren't the only thing that seem to be suffering.  Whilst I feel bad that I am behind, I don't seem to feel bad enough for that motivation and guilt that normally drives me - this I think IS due to the medication.  So for those who are STILL waiting for there flowers...I think I am at least May, June and July behind - if I also owe April...please do email me and let me know as I'm really not sure where I am at now and I WILL get them done as soon as I can get my head round things.

I have received three lovely sets of hexies the last week, so I will post photos and thank you's for them tomorrow when I can get some photos taken.

I will also email Jane with this information so she knows where I am at.

I can only say sorry, and hope to get them done soon.

Getting ahead of the hexis

Life got a little hectic the past few months with the transition to a full-time job (hooray!) and a teenager and taking on a farm business and ... and ... and ... All the hexis I owe are in the mail and/or have arrived at their destination!
These two are for Joanne in Australia. This was my first attempt at attempting to match a fussy cut on all petals. I didn't realize the secondary star pattern would emerge, pretty cool. 
The cute scotties and birds on floral backgrounds are for Rosalie in Australia.
The above went to Edda in Iceland (pinks) and Kristina in Missouri (purples).

Kate' & now

I got it wrong!!!!

In my last post I said that I hadn't received my April flowers - I got it wrong!!  My apologies to Elizabeth who sent me two beautiful flowers.  It was the February flowers I didn't get, and am not expecting any more, but I shall make them myself.  Once again, sorry Elizabeth for that booboo of a mistake!

Karen W - July flowers

Hi Karen

I will post your July flowers today :-) I hope you like them.


July hexies for Susan in Mississippi

It's not often that I get a U.S. partner in the swap.  Since I did for July, I couldn't help but make some patriotic hexies for Susan.  They'll be on their way this week.  Celebrate!!  Kathie L in Allentown

June hexies flying to Australia

Lara asked for red and purple for her hexies so I went through my stash and found some fabrics that i hope were a good choice. June was the month of the Jubilee celebrations here in England so I *had* to use my London fabric with a crown! I hope these 2 hexies will fit in Lara's garden. They are on their way now (posted on Friday)
