Linda McClymont--check your mail!

Hi Linda,
I think I am a month slow but I finally have your hexies in the mail. They will post today--I don't know how long it takes to get from Utah USA to Canada--hopefully not to long!
 Hope you like them--Civil War fabrics stress me a bit. Everywhere I go I get a different opinion on what constitutes 'Civil War'. Please Linda if they are not right I would gladly try again. Because I love doing these little flowers!
Have a happy summer, I am! I am also all caught up on my hexies, at least for a day or two! Thanks all for letting me be a part of this wonderful group.
Much Love,
Cindy Harris

Catching up with thank you's ... from Lara ... part 2!

About time I posted my lovely hexies from April - June!

Lovely hexies from Karen in April - I just adore the bunnies!  And the lovely bright card will make it into one of my crafty projects I'm sure :)

May brought these beautiful hexies from Judith in Texas, there's a bit of an Aboriginal painting theme with the dots which I love - and look at that lovely Queen Mother singleton hexie!

And in June I received these very pretty hexies from Jane, along with a gorgeous quilty card reminding me of summer in our cool WA winter.

Thank you ladies so much, these hexies are awesome and a lovely addition to my garden. xxx

Flowers arrived from Germany!

Good Morning my fellow Inchy Flower Swappers.
I just wanted to say thank you all for allowing me to participate in a wonderful group of swappers.
I love sewing Hexies and I am sorry that I left the group.
I truly enjoyed all the beautiful flowers that I received and look forward to finishing my Inchy Hexagon Flower quilt.
What a beautiful garden to have from all around near and far.
Hexy Flowers from Grit
I received my last flowers from Grit and will be a wonderful touch to my garden. 
Again, thank you all from having me and I will truly miss all the flowers from around the world and my fellow swappers.

Thanks, Erica

I just got home after vacationing almost the whole month of June and found these lovely May flowers waiting for me.

Thanks so much, Erica. I really like the pretty colors you chose.


Catching up with thank yous ... from Lara

Hi everyone, I'm so sorry I've been very remiss with blogging my pics of my lovely hexies, but am about to fix that :)  And I was so pleased with myself for posting about my January hexies which I'd received from Karyli ... still time to make amends ...

So starting with February, my lovely hexies from Kathryn, and some gorgeous samples of fabric to make a few more myself - yay!

and then in March, lovely hexies from Joke, love the sunshine coloured card too :)

Thank you lovely ladies for contributing to my garden. 

Now I have to find my pics for April-June.  Depending on how successful I am I could be blogging later tonight or tomorrow.  Watch this space xx

July Swap Partners have been sent

Hi all,

I sent out the list for the July swap an hour or so ago.  If you did not receive it and think you should have, please let me know.  Also please make sure you check your partners, both who you are giving to and who you are receiving from, and let me know right away if there are any mistakes or problems.

This month we are saying good-bye to Judith, although she said she might be back soon.  We are welcoming Jenny from Queensland, Australia.  And Dawn is taking a few months off to let her arm heal.

We do have one empty spot but I believe there is someone waiting to join.  If it doesn't work out I will indicate there is an open spot on the blog.

Here are a couple of blocks I made this month which start with a middle hexie.  The block is called a Katherine Wheel and instructions for it can be found here if anyone wants to try it.  It is a lot easier to make than it looks like it would be.  :)

A block for the Simply Solids bee.

A mug rug for the Mug Rug Revival swap.

As usual Blogger has turned my pictures sideways.... Oh well.....

Thanks, Joke.  Your flowers did indeed arrive before the end of the month.   They are a lovely addition to my garden.  I love that during the summer I can photograph my hexies in my REAL flower garden.  Best wishes,  Kathie L in Allentown
