One Flower Wednesday from a Slacker in Texas

Encouraging Words of the Day:

Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. ~ Philippians 4:6, NLT

I've been on a 2-month hiatus. I mentioned on the last blog post I made on September 18, that I was in a bit of a blogger's funk. Well, yes indeed, I just dropped out of the blogging world; no posting and no reading blogs. I have not been ill or anything like that. Nothing was wrong with me except that I just couldn't find the time to write up a blog post. I felt guilty reading all the posts of those of you who were managing to get this done so I dropped out until I got my mojo back. I found that I wasn't sewing much either without reading the ideas of my blogging friends and I missed your input. We've just left California after spending 2 weeks there with our daughter and family. Now we're off to our Texas Hill Country ranch to hunt for a couple of weeks before returing to El Paso to get full-swing into our Christmas preparations.

That said, I'm posting on "One-Flower Wednesday" which has long been a favorite of mine. Karen provides a linky for those interested in posting the flowers they make and I was pretty faithful in sewing my little hexis although I didn't post them. Here are six of them.

This first set of orange flowers came out a little blurry in the photo and a lot ugly in that navy blue with circles. I don't know why that looks so awful in the photo. It doesn't look that bad in "real life."

I think this next set of three looks pretty good. I really like that precious little white chicken in the blue hexie flower.

There were two hexie flowers and several hexie templates waiting for me in my mailbox when I got back from California Just look at the beautiful colors in the flowers sent to me from my September swap partner in the "Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap. Shannon, they are gorgeous and I thank you.

Now, I'm off to pack for the ranch. I'm taking my Christmas fabric to finish up a little Christmas quilt I've been working on and hoping to finish before Christmas so I can display it for a while.

That is all.
