Piece Yourself Together Hexie Flowers

Encouraging Words of the Day:


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.

We've been on the road lately so I was able to get some hand-sewing done on my lifetime project of 1/2-inch hexie flowers. When last I showed you what I'd sewn together, there were 25 flowers. I now have 65 flowers and the piece measures a measley 21" X 31".

Upon returning from our travels, I was excited to find two packages containing flowers, both from fellow stitchers in the "Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap."

Geraldine, my November swap partner sent me these lovely flowers. I really like how she combined the different patterns/prints in the second flower. They are both perfect. Thanks so much.

We have a new member from Russia. We sent each other test snail mail to see how long it would take to receive something from each other. In about 2 weeks, I received these flowers. I love the cheerful yellow centers and those pretty prints. Thanks, Debra

And finally, for my December partner, I've completed these flowers which will go in the mail tomorrow.

My partner is Debra who is asking for small prints in the petals and black and white stripe, checks, or lines for the center. I hope she'll like what I chose for her.
That is all.
