Hexies in My Real Life

Encouraging Words of the Day:

I'm back in my "Real Life" in El Paso, Texas now, back from the beach and a marvelous vacation in Virginia, USA. I'm madly typing my blog post trying to make the last day of Anthea's "Piece Yourself Together" linky at "Hibiscus Stitches."
Here are my half-inch hexie flowers:
When I got back to El Paso, I also had these beautiful flowers waiting for me in my mailbox.
These gorgeous flowers are from my swap partner in the "Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap." They came from Karyli in Idaho, USA. Thanks so much. They're perfect!
Off to try to make the linky deadline so ...
that is all.

Hexie Flowers on the Beach

Encouraging Words of the Day:

This Tuesday finds me "Piecing Myself Together" at the beach.
 
Oh yes.
But remembering it is Anthea's "Piece Yourself Together" linky time, I'm late because I think it's Wednesday but I also think the linky is still available at "Hibiscus Stitches."
Here are my half-inch hexie flowers:
And yes, "that is all" because I think there are Margaritas waiting for me on the beach!

Piece Yourself Together Tuesday

Encouraging Words of the Day:

 
Happy Tuesday! Once again it's time for Althea's "Piece Yourself Together" linky at "Hibiscus Stitches." Please click on the photo link below to see what others are doing with their hexies.



Still working on my "Ranch House" hexie wallhanging but it doesn't show much progress so I'll wait until next time to show a photo :) In the meantime, here are some half-inch hexie flowers I've been working on during road trips.

Short post today so that is all.

Piece Yourself Together Tuesday

Encouraging Words of the Day:

Happy Tuesday! Once again it's time for Anthea's "Piece Yourself Together" linky at "Hibiscus Stitches." Please click on the photo link below to see what others are doing with their hexies.



I've been diligently working on my "Ranch House" hexie wallhanging even though it may not look llike it.

It was getting hard to sew hexies onto it so I took out some of the little papers as Needled Mom and Althea suggested and it's definitely working better.
Also completed are these flowers for my swap partner at the "Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap." She requested flowers in bright blue with white centers.
And finally, the saga of 1/2-inch hexies continues. I now have 350 completed so I'm about half way there. Here are three of them. I love those little elephants.
That is all.

Wednesday Post for a Tuesday Linky

Encouraging Words of the Day:

When it's Tuesday in Texas, USA, it's not Tuesday in Australia. I think. Anyway, Anthea hosts an EPP linky for us on her Tuesday in Australia. Here is is already Wednesday in Texas and I'm barely now posting so I can hook-up to Anthea's linky.

Here's a photo of my big project in progress:

This part is not that much fun as it's hard so sew all these hexies together but it's getting there.

And the accumulation of half-inch hexie flowers continues. Here are 3 more:

Thanks, Anthea for providing the linky. Click "Hibiscus Stitches" to see what others are doing with their EPP.

Hill Country Wildflowers and Hexie Flowers

Encouraging Words of the Day:

Well, the 2nd Tuesday of the month, the day when Anthea of Hibiscus Stitches provides a linky for us to share our hexie projects, has arrived and almost gone. I'm writing this as I sit in a hunting blind at our little Texas ranch. We're hunting feral hogs. So far, no luck. Of course, I'm looking at my iPad as I write this instead of looking out for a feral hog to wander by. But, I digress. Earlier I walked about the ranch admiring our beautiful wildflowers and thinking about Anthea's hexie link. I sewed up a couple of flowers for my partner in the "Inchy-Hexagon Flower Swap."

Here they are in front of a Prickly Pear cactus flower...

and another of them with the "Mexican Hat" wildflowers as well as a few cactus berries.

Then I saw these beautiful little yellow wildflowers, the perfect place to photograph these three little half-inch hexie flowers for my life-long project of making enough half-inchers to make a quilt some day.

Thanks, Anthea, for providing the linky. Check out Anthea's blog to see the hexie projects others have made.

That is all.

Hexies, hexies

Encouraging Words of the Day:

Today is the Tuesday that Anthea from Hibiscus Stitches has her linky where we can "show-off"

our English paper-piecing.

I've been working on this wall hanging like forever. My sister Ida made the little house in the center to depict our little ranch house. I've been making hexies and stitching them together off-and-on for two years and decided that it was time I really got it put together. This is what I'm working on.

I'm trying to fill in all those holes and make it look pretty. Hmmmmm, better keep working on that....

 

Other than that, I got a few little half-inch hexie flowers done.

 
And finally, got these flowers done for my swap partner in the "Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap."
She asked for flowers in bright colors so I hope she likes these.
That is all.
