Here's a sneak peak of your December hexies which I made over the weekend.
The forecast for Melbourne (Australia) for Saturday was 41 degrees celsius (106 fahrenheit) so I spent the day hand sewing making, among other things, these hexies. I sat under the air conditioning vent with my two dogs laying on the cool tiled floor beside me. Sunday's forecast was 37 degrees (99 fahrenheit) so more sewing was done and definitely no housework. Melbourne's weather is so unique as by 6pm the cool change had come through and it was back to 19 degrees (66 fahrenheit).
I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Safe New Year.

you.... My sewing kit is back out in NOT MISSING..... but IN ACTION!!
We had Iceland-like aka ... ice covered trees here in my section of Oklahoma City last week..... Beautiful as I look at the glistening ice.... a little saddened at the breaking of tree limbs...... but impressed at God's great grace in allowing the tree to bend, break a little..... but to survive - thrive and provide cover and beauty in the coming seasons of life.... My metaphor!!!
So, to Mizzy "D" of Buckingham United Kingdom (I think it says) YES, YES , YES indeed my hexies are lovely. I even get excited over the postage stamp... like none other I;ve ever seen. Places I hope to travel to.....
A Big - Belated Thank YOU...... and lots of love to my Inchy Hexagon Friends.!!

These hexie flowers came to Texas all the way from my September partner,Michele in Wisconsin, USA.
And then there was another envelope which came to Texas from further away. Here are these lovely flowers from Sara in the UK, my October partner.
I'm off now to do my own sewing.
That is all.

I have enough flowers for this many rows again, but I may make it another flower wider. I haven't decided what I am going to do with the edges yet. Karen at Faeries and Fibres has a tutorial for adding a border for a hexie quilt. And somewhere I have seen a tutorial for finishing the edges without a border, but I can't remember where. I am getting ahead of myself, because I still have lots of stitching to do before I get there. But I do have a bunch of flowers already put together so I am just working on adding the green pathway now and it won't take forever (I hope!!).
Hubby and I attended the annual pumpkin carving party at my friend Donna's on Friday night. Here are our funky and fun jack-o-lanterns.
Hubby's is Alfred E. Newman. Mine is just a flower. I won first prize - I've never won before - and got a cute little carving set as my prize, I'm all set for next year's contest!!
I hope you had a wonderful Halloween, with lots of fun costumes and decorations and not too much candy! Since NO kids came to our house, we have a box of chocolate bars that I am sure we'll be eating ourselves.. :(
