June hexies received

Coralie lives just down the coast from me.... well maybe a couple of thousand kilometres down the coast, but I am pretty sure she is the closest inchy hexagon swapper to me.  All this to say that she sent me lovely second round hexies for June.

One set is sewn to its flower...

It is really amazing to me how I have the perfect flowers to go with every set of second round hexies I receive.  This flower was made for me by Grit.

Coralie sent a gorgeous second set of hexies and I have a flower all picked out and ready to sew them to.... but I have lost one of the hexies....  I have shamelessly asked Coralie if she will send me another one...

Here are eleven of them all their prettiness...

And then Coralie sent me another strip to use for a third round of hexies.  I haven't cut into it yet, but here it is in all its beauty...

Thank-you Coralie!  My Grandmother's Flower Garden is inching its way into existence (Ho, ho, I couldn't help it...).

These beautiful June Hexie Flowers arrived for me recently, from Nora Brough in Canada, with a lovely matching "Country Wedding Ring" card.
Thank you so much Nora, they really brought a burst of Sunshine to our chilly Winter weather.
Best Wishes,

Swapper Profile - Diane!

This week we are saying hello to Diane...and here she is...

"Online I usually go by DianeM. 

Although I grew up in West Irondequoit, a suburb of Rochester, NY,  I now live in Northern NJ with my DH of 30 years & our 2 children ages 23 & 17. Our daughter is currently working on her post-graduate teacher's license and our son is extremely thrilled to have just finished his junior year of high school. I work during the school year as a paraprofessional at a local middle school. We just finished up last week and I am still celebrating the start of my summer...woohoo!

I LOVE all types of needle arts and all types of crafting. I am forever starting new projects & buying more supplies for more future projects...it's an addiction! I also enjoy reading, watching classic movies, and keeping up with my online friends through blogs & pinterest. 

If I could have one wish granted it would be to live on Cape Cod crafting my days away <3

-I tried to attach a picture but it 's at the bottom, I couldn't get it to attach up here with my reply...obviously I'm NOT computer savvy!"

You may not think you're computer savvy Diane, but I got your photo anyway. :)   LOOK at Diane's lovely pink hexie quilt!

Thanks for sharing with us Diane - about yourself and your fabulous quilt!  It is lovely to find out more about you.  

Hopefully EVERYONE will drop in and say hi!
