Hexie Flowers From Far Away

We've been traveling but when we got home, I found these gorgeous flowers waiting for me in our mailbox:

These hexie flowers came to Texas all the way from my September partner,Michele in Wisconsin, USA.

I think they're so pretty and love the contrast in the two. One flower in those beautiful browns and the other with its sunshiney center and the little confetti-looking print. Thanks, Michele.

And then there was another envelope which came to Texas from further away. Here are these lovely flowers from Sara in the UK, my October partner.

What a coincidence, another lovely brown and 2 sunshiney yellow centers PLUS another flower with a confetti-looking print. I love the colors you chose for me. Thanks, Sara.

I'm off now to do my own sewing.

That is all.

Grandmother's Flower Garden update

For a while I've been meaning to show an update of my Grandmother's Flower Garden, but I've had a row to attach and I kept waiting to get that complete.  Well, I finally finished it at our Craft Club get-together this morning.  So, ta-da!!  Here is my progress to date.

I have enough flowers for this many rows again, but I may make it another flower wider.  I haven't decided what I am going to do with the edges yet.  Karen at Faeries and Fibres has a tutorial for adding a border for a hexie quilt.  And somewhere I have seen a tutorial for finishing the edges without a border, but I can't remember where.  I am getting ahead of myself, because I still have lots of stitching to do before I get there.  But I do have a bunch of flowers already put together so I am just working on adding the green pathway now and it won't take forever (I hope!!).

Hubby and I attended the annual pumpkin carving party at my friend Donna's on Friday night.  Here are our funky and fun jack-o-lanterns.

Hubby's is Alfred E. Newman.  Mine is just a flower.  I won first prize - I've never won before - and got a cute little carving set as my prize,  I'm all set for next year's contest!!

I hope you had a wonderful Halloween, with lots of fun costumes and decorations and not too much candy!  Since NO kids came to our house, we have a box of chocolate bars that I am sure we'll be eating ourselves.. :(


October Flowers for Carrie in Colorado!!

Here is a little sneekie peek ~

Carrie asked for batiks or prints in the Editya Sitar style.  Hope you like them, Carrie - they are in the mail to you first thing tomorrow morning!!

Sneak Peak for Melody

Hi Melody
