Hexie Flowers Sent and Received . . .

I got my February flowers in The Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap completed for Karyli on Saturday (last day of the month but it was still February) and they go in the mail today ~

I am trying really hard to keep up with this swap this year as last year I was not such a good girl.

I am glad, though, that I am not the only one who gets a bit behind!! :-))  I just got my September, 2014 flowers from Beverly K. in Oklahoma!!  But they were sure worth waiting for!!

And, she included a darling note and a gorgeous blank birthday that I can sent out!!  Thank you, Bev, I love them both!!

Charity Quilt

This is the time of year I usually make a charity quilt for the Children's Justice Center here in Logan. This year, I asked Tammy over at Two Tangled Threads if she would donate the quilting for this year's quilt.

Instead of saying yes, she suprized me and said she has a twin size quilt that was made to be a charity quilt but that she had yet to find a home for it.  Soooooo . . . . .

she gave it to me to be donated for the annual dinner and live auction.

Thank you, Tammy it is a gorgeous quilt 
and you are wonderful!!

Just Plugging Along!!

I have had a chance to work on my Bunny BEARS needlepoint ~

I found a great green for the wide border and I think it is going to be perfect.  Plus, I got all the little flowers done!!

I also got a bunch of the mystery charms made into 9-patches ~

They are pretty wild, so I am not sure what to do with them yet.  I might cut them into vanishing 9-patches or make snowball blocks to alternate with the 9-patches.  Janet O. over at Rogue Quilter made that fun suggestion.  I have so many 9-patches that I may be able to make 2 quilts.

Some of the mystery blocks were the same, so I made a seperate top from them.  It is about 28" x 28" and so I was thinking I would put flannel on the back and turn it into a diaper changing pad.

Next, I got my November Inchy Flower Hexagons done for  Cathy C.  She wanted light to medium pinks, purples, blues and mauves with yellow centers ~

And then I received my December flowers from Paula O. in Australia ~

They are fabulous and they will go great in my garden!!  So nice to be getting some things worked on !!

Tonight Was Quilt Guild

and it is just amazing how wonderful the Row-a-Long Challenge is going!!  This month I got to do Judy B's and each month it gets harder and harder to figure something out because all the previous rows are so fabulous!1

Here is the row I did for Judy's quilt ~

And here is how her quilt is coming along!!

We still have February through April so they are going to be wonderful.  I can't wait to show you mine in April!!

Slow Sunday Stitchin'

My little antique needlepoint is moving right along - slowly, very slowly!!

I like the color blue, but it is not one of my first choices, so I tried a limey green for that blue border - see the little section on the bottom right corner.  I love that it is green, but I think it needs to be a darker green, so I am going out tomorrow to see exchange it with a green that has more pop!!

Also, I was scrunging around in a closet in my basement and came across this pile of charms.  I have NO idea how old they are and really have NO idea what I was going to do with them as there is no rhyme or reason to the fabric selection.  Hmmmm, something very scrappy perhaps!!

Hope you all had a lovely Sunday!!

September & October Flowers On Their Way . . .

tomorrow morning to Beverly K. in Oklahoma City, OK for September.

Beverly wanted blue and white with yellow centers!!  These were really fun to make!!

And October Flowers to Anne-Lise in Denmark ~

Anne-Lise said she din't have a preference and that anything was welcome.  So, of course, I made her some bright Kaffe Flowers with green polka-dot centers!!

Playing Major Catch-up

You know how sometimes doing something just isn't fun anymore - sometimes because it is something you have to do and other times it is because you have done it so many times, it is no longer fun.

Well, that is how I have been for the past 6 months with making my hexie flowers for the Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap.  But I am making amends and I completed two August flowers for Joke R. ~

I hope she likes them as they are on their way to The Netherlands tomorrow morning!  She wanted light-colored, solid centers so she can embroider the sender's name and date there.  Tonight I am starting my September flowers and will have them all done through Janauary by the end of the month!!
