January Sneekie Peek . . .

for Sandra in California!!

Sandra said she had no preferences for either the petals or the centers, so I hope these little flowers will work well in your garden, Sandra!!

Geraldine Clancy-Tipton

Dear Geraldine--I am finally getting caught up on my hexie making. Thank you for your patience. Your hexies will be in the mail this weekend!
Again I am sorry.

Thanks Pat Battison!

I received two beautiful polka-dot hexies. One blue, one pink. Thank you Pat--they will be a great addition to my 'dotty' garden. Please forgive my lack of a photo. But they are beautiful.
Thanks Pat!

Irene Vigil and Jan Manley--check your mailbox!

Ladies--please forgive my lateness buy I have your hexies in the mail.
Thanks again Irene and Jan for your patience.

Flowers from Rosalie in Australia

I had these gorgeous flowers waiting for me in the mailbox when I got back from our recent trip to the Texas Hill Country. They're from my partner for January and came all the way from Rosalie in Australia:

I asked for "surprise" flowers and Rosalie came through like a champ and sent not only the 2 flowers required, but 3! I especially like the flower made up of fabric with pictures of hexie flowers. Rosalie also made a little refrigerator magnet out of one of the hexie patterns. What a lovely surprise. Thanks so much.

These bright flowers are just what is needed at this time of year.  The cold weather and snow may be outside my window, but it is a summer garden on my window sill.  Many thanks,  Kathie L

Oh Dear, I'm Behind in Posting this Stuff!

Those last three months sure whizzed by in a hurry.  I had the best of intentions of getting these posted much sooner.  Now I'll just include everything in one post.

I have Kris Y. to thank for these beauties.  I asked for bright colors and she did not disappoint.  These were for November.

 These batiks came from Maree G. in December and I couldn't be happier.

Finally, these came from Karyli for January.  Polka dots!  It's like she read my mind!  I love polka dots.

Last, but not least, remember the giveaway contest Janet was holding for comments on the blog?  I was the lucky winner!  Woo-hoo!  I love my new glue pen.

Thank you so much to everyone.  These have been my first three months in the swap and it's been a great experience so far.  I'm so glad I got to join!

December and January

My December and January flowers have been sent and may already be at their new home.  
I was not sure if my colors for December  to Dawn, were ok so I sent one more 

For January, to Edda,  I think these Civil War  are true fabric reproductions.

Did my partners like? I would like to know......

Trouble with
