Thanks Susan!



Wow, I got a fun parcel in the mail. Susan sent me three, yes 3 darling hexie flowers. She also included a fat quarter of some fun fabric. It is covered in bright beach umbrellas. Susan said this fabric reminded her of her beach in North Myrtle Beach.
I live in landlocked Utah so I really don't have much beach experience. The fabric reminds me of warm summer days. We have a couple of feet of snow in our front yard right now, it is not warm!
Thanks again Susan for the happy mail. It made my day!
Love, Cindy

Thank you Simone

 I received these gorgeous December Hexies from Simone Smith!  I love them!  The colors are perfect.
Thank you so much Simone, and also for the lovely card!

These are my first hexies I have received since I joined last November.
Oops...the first two sets I mailed out, I have to confess that I messed up the size of the hexie flower and petal!!!  The size of the total hexie flowers I made were 1" round.  I will make sure to mail Celine Combet and Maggie Fellow the right size flower and petals.  I feel awful an I apologize for my mistake!

Best wishes for all the best in 2016.

This month we welcome two new swappers:
Ruth Bryan joins us from Australia and Susan  Arena joins us from South Carolina, USA.  Sadly we’re saying good-by to Chris O’Donnell, a fairly new swapper who was unhappy because she had not received flowers or communication from senders. Please, let’s remember to be prompt sending flowers or letting the person we’re sending to, that the flowers will be late and when to expect them.

Just wondering, do most members  have a Facebook account. I’m thinking that it may be easier to post our flowers on facebook since some seem to have a problem posting to the blog or do not have a blog. If Facebook would be easier to use, I can set up a page for us. Please just send me a quick email letting me know if you have Facebook or not. It’s really easy to set up a Facebook account, much easier than the blog so let me know. Thanks.

The January 2016 lists have been sent by email. Please let me know if you find any problem.
Happy Sewing,

Irene
