August for Karyli

Hi Karyli!
  Just wanted to let you know that your August Hexies will be on their way in the morning! I hope these fit well into your garden. One thing I learned this month is that I do not have much yellow in my fabric stash! Why? I don't know. I love it! I hope you enjoy.

Sneaky Flower Peek to Edda !

August Hexies !!   Remember the name/label Idea....??? LOL   !!!

Why stick a little name tag into back of hexie...???

Why might this be of increasing importance to me..... a woman of 60 yrs??? LOL...   Well -- a to and from sticker comes in handy!   I sit at my desk at work and I am able to be tiny name tags.....

Thanks to Pat Battison (UK) for her lovely hexagons -- I know they were blue and yellow !

 I cherish your note-card....   tucked pretty into my purse for several weeks.... a good feeling!

But a'las -- I don't see the hexies.....I placed them into my big (unsewn) basket of hexies..... I'll have to look since memory has poor recall among the flowers...... JUST lots of JOY of Swapping!

Thanks, Coralie!

These lovely flowers arrived in the mail this week. Coralie from Canada is my August partner. Coralie said she made the one composed of stars for Texas. That's quite appropriate since we're the Lone Star State and the other made up of browns and grays for the up-coming fall season which will soon be upon us. Thanks, Coralie. They'll look great in my "Flowers of the World" project.

Greetings from Germany, Grit

Thank You Ana from Portugal!

Look what was in my mailbox! Two beautiful polka dot flowers to add to my garden and a beautiful cork postcard. Thank you Ana--you made my day!

July hexies from Erica

I just returned last night from a sailing trip,

and found my July hexies from Erica in the mail.

I had asked for one or two sets of 14 hexies to use as a second row on my flowers.  Erica sent me two sets of beauties...

And I spent the afternoon adding them to flowers...

Aren't they fantastic!!  I need to start to figure out what my layout is going to be.

August Flowers to Portugal

From Peggy  - Sunny - Schroeder to sunny Portugal two fabulous hexie flowers. I love red and I love Yellow Roses! My garden is still a little one and not yet decided on the colour to the background, so my flowers are resting until I have more and can start putting them together.

Thanks Sunny!

August Hexies from Simone Smith

These lovely august Hexies were sent to me from Simone Smith, I love the pretty fabrics, they will fit into my Garden Quilt  beautifully, I have started to put my Quilt together now.
Thank you so much Simone.
Best Wishes from Rosalie.

Keeping the US Postal System Alive and Well..... I Hope So!

I've always thought of my circle of influence as small but great in some mysterious way --- like a pebble tossed into the pond: my handiwork spreads abroad!  So much for the philosophy of my sending a simple set of handsewn hexagons to my girlfriend Celine in the UK! 

I think I overlooked her in my December 2012 list --- and I've just not been able to rest easy.  She wanted polka dotty-dots!   Here goes!

Please forgive my dis-organizational skills!

I don't think I have ever actually posted, feeling somewhat computer challenged. But I have really enjoyed being part of this swap and group. I live in Indiana, and my favorite part of my hexie quilt are the ones that I have received from many of you. I'm sorry I haven't taken the time to post. I have just sent June ( Shanon Wagstaff ) and July( Susan Linn ) is in the envelope. Next, I will conquer posting photos.
