Encouraging Words of the Day:
For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. ~ Jeremiah 29:11, NLT
It's "One-Flower Wednesday" and I am managing to post my flowers on time today. We traveled to our little ranch last week and it was SO cold that we barely managed to put feed out for our whitetail deer. It got down to 23 degrees and that is in Texas, for crying out loud. So we packed up and drove back to El Paso after spending just 5 days there. It's barely a little warmer here. I sound "all whiney and cry babyish," I know, since so many of you are under snow and really cold weather. Where are you spring? I'm definitely ready for you.
I had these gorgeous flowers waiting for me in the mailbox when I got back. They're from my partner for January in the "Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap." All the way from Rosalie in Australia:
I asked for "surprise" flowers and Rosalie came through like a champ and sent not only the 2 flowers required, but 3! I especially like the flower made up of fabric with pictures of hexie flowers. Rosalie also made a little refrigerator magnet out of one of the hexie patterns and included a bookmark made by her friend. What a lovely surprise. Thanks so much.
And now for the flowers I sewed this week?
These brings my total up to 173 flowers. Are you wondering how many I'll need to make a quilt? Well, my friend Josie from "Insanity Defense" suggested I go to Cd Designs to find out. Thanks, Josie. I found out that for a queen size quilt I'll need 7,391 hexagons. Well, divide that by 7 hexagons per flowers and that comes to 1,056 half-inch flowers, minus the 173 I have completed = 882 more flowers needed. Maybe I should consider a double bed sized quilt? Nevertheless, I guess I better get back to sewing more flowers so for now...
