One-Flower Wednesday and My Jane D-12

Encouraging Words of the Day –
Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. - 1 Peter 3:3-4

Today is One Flower Wednesday   Each week, Karen from "Journey of a Quilter" encourages us to  make at least one hexie flower to add to our garden.  Works for me so here goes two hexies done.

And here’s a block for “My Jane.”  This looks like it was hard to do (looked hard to me) but it was actually easy paper-piecing with the little squares appliquéd on the corners. 

I’ve been playing catch-up the rest of them time.  I finally made 4 blocks for the Block Lotto.  This month the block is called Eclipse.  These are 4 blocks placed next to each other to form the circle.

And then what else did I do?  It seems like I’ve been busy.  I had a wonderful lunch today with my sister.  I also spent some time with her in her sewing room.  Talk about someone who is accomplishing a lot there and blogging about it as well.  She’s planning a giveaway soon so keep checking in.  Of course, I’ll be posting about her giveaway when it actually happens… Waiting…waiting… Here’s a link to her blog:  "My sister made me do it..."  

Here are the giveaways I've run into:
KD-Quilts is having a giveaway.  You could win a copy of Electric Quilt 7 (EQ7).  This giveaway ends Wednesday, January 11, at 8:00 pm EST.  Man, you're barely going to make this one.

Love Affair With My Brother is having a giveaway.  You could win a sample pack of Aurifil thread.  This giveaway ends Friday, January 13, at 11:59 pm PST.

"the plaid scottie"  is having a "Mega Scrap Giveaway." - ends January 15th.

That is all.

I love those little hexie flowers. One of my sisters follows my blog and has her own. I don't even dare to mention that I have a blog to the other sister as I fear she would take over the comment department

Cute hexie-flowers - love how you fussy cut the blue one. I like your DJ block too - I have just started Farmers Wife and I can see how some of the blocks in these quilts are real challenges!!

Your flowers are so different from each other, both beautiful! Thanks for the lotto reminder. I forgot to put it on my calendar, but I still have time!
