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.
