Sorry it has been a while... First a big thank you to Joke who sent me some lovely flowers, they were worth the wait, thank you so much

and also to Cathy who has sent me those gorgeous flowers for January.

I am only missing my December flowers from last year now.
And tomorrow I will post my delayed flowers to Dawn for January. We live in the same country so they should hopefully reach her quickly.

Thank you hexies from Edda

Thank you Edda for my two beautiful hexies all the way from Iceland. It was a pleasure being part of the hexie swap and sharing flowers with you.

February hexies sent and received

Today was the day I sent off my February hexies to Lara in Australia.  Here's their photo.

When I returned home from the post office, I found my February hexies from Judith in Texas had arrived.  They fit the bill for bright and colorful, which is what I asked for.  Thanks, Judith, for these and also for the fat quarter you enclosed.   Kathie L in Allentown, PA

I just returned from a 3-week long trip and had hexies waiting for me in the mail. Both January and February hexies had arrived. These are the January hexies from Grit in Germany. She also included a cute card and bookmark. Thanks, Grit. They are perfect.


And for February, Gayle from Ohio sent me THREE lovely hexie flowers in case I didn't like one. How generous your are with your time and hexies, Gayle. They are all beautiful. Thanks so much!

An update, and Jan & Feb flowers Received.

I am way behind again...owing January and February Flowers and possibl7 some from last year - if you haven't received flowers from me and should have, please don't be afraid to let me know.  I am hoping once I am completely off my currently medication that I will have more motivation and energy.  Unfortunately at the moment I am suffering from almost daily migraine/headaches and as such they are not conducive to sewing, but I WILL get them done I promise, they will just be late.

In the meantime I want to thank Linda for the lovely flowers she sent  me in January, not two, but THREE! and a lovely little pin broach.  Thank you Linda, they really are lovely and will really help my garden grow well!

Secondly just arrived and wrapped in such pretty paper were the flowers for February from Kris.

Not only the flowers but a piece of her hand dyed fabric.  Thank you very much Kris, they are wonderful and I love them.

Thank you Patti

For your pretty Hexies and your lovely hand-made card.

Susan L. here is a peek at the hexies which are on their way to you.  Sorry to be so slow!

January Flowers for Leslie L.

Here is a sneekie peek for Leslie - they are on their way to you!!

hexagon size problems

When I joined this group, I could not buy hexagon patterns locally.  I printed hexagon patterns from the internet.  Although the patterns measured one inch, I discovered that they were actually slightly smaller.  It could have been caused by the printer I don't know.  This may be a possible reason that Jane is finding some of her flowers to be smaller.
I replaced all of the flowers that I had made and sent out using those computer printouts, after I managed to find a source in Canada for the hexagon card stock patterns.  Thankfully I didn't have to replace many flowers.

Hexies are in the mail

I finally finished my January hexies for one of our new swappers, Judith from Texas.  They are in the mail today and hopefully will reach her soon.  Here is a sneak peek.

Hope you like them Judith!

February list sent

Hi all,

I've just sent out the February 2013 lists.  If you did not receive it and think you should have, or if you see anything on the list that looks incorrect, please let me know as soon as possible.

We have said good-bye to quite a few participants over the last couple of months.  Cynthia Landrie, Geniene Barbour, Hanne Hector Schroeder, Doris Gloger, Dawn Goodan, Deb Pflager  and our beloved Jane Davidson have all opted to leave the swap.

I have accepted two new people into the swap.  Please welcome Judith Reynolds who joined us in January and Nora Brough who is joining us this month.  I have also told a third person who enquired about joining that she can join in March is she is still interested.  There is one more spot available is anyone has a friend who is keen to join.

I have been trying to get the group a little more cohesive.  I have sent e-mails to everyone.  I heard back from Anette Johannsen, Beverly Kirk, Joke Roodenburg and Shannon Wagstaff - who I had not included in the January list because they hadn't responded.  All four are keen to continue on and assured me they are either caught up or will get caught up and will let their swap partners know they are going to send the hexies.  I haven't heard from Barbara Turner, Janelle Bidois Debra Hendrie or Natalie Sloley and am removing them from the list.

I am really pleased that there seem to be more posts showing flowers sent and received.  It would be ultra nice if we tried to comment on others posts showing their flowers.

Jane Kerr forwarded me a question that I don't have an answer for - can anyone else give her some advice?

"I'm beginning to add outer rows to my hexagon flowers and have found that a few of them are smaller in comparison. Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

These I will have to set aside for individual projects.

Those that are using thinner papers, is that making the difference?

Thanks for your time ."

And last, but definitely not least, I was overwhelmed to receive some lovely hexies as a "thank-you" for taking over coordinating this swap.  My post mistress said to my hubby "Janet gets such pretty mail."

Thank-you so much Jane Kerr for these lovely hexies...and the super pretty envelope and notepaper...

And thank-you Gayle Arnold for these beautiful hexies and the pretty envelope (and the stamps - I love getting stamps on my mail and I save them all :))

XO to all.  Hope you have a good month of hexie flower making...
