Hexie madness?

I decided on bright and cheerful for Wednesday's flowers this week.......
......as all of the others I have done lately have been rather blue....

 This happened because I came away from home unprepared for a longer than intended visit.

I had a cute little tin of creams and beiges prepared so that I could make this background----
More on this project later - once I have planned the next step!
 After a few days it was getting too big to be a handbag project... so what does a good keen girl do...?
Yes, you're right, in desperation (grin) I visited a quilt shop. I wanted some hexie flower fabric and was surprised to find only one fabric in the shop that I thought would go with my previous fabrics!! Of course I bought it and was able to mix it with the odd prepared hexie I had in my other tin.

And aren't I a spoilt wife - the MOML came to my rescue and posted down my box of hexie stuff..hence the cheerful hexie-flowers and a happy me.

I love all the hexie but must say the bright ones are my favorites.
How nice of your MOML to send up your box of fabrics.

Leeanne said...

Thank goodness for your hubby! He might not do you know what while your away, but he made up for it by sending you your hexie stuff to cheer the day!

Wonderful hexies. Your garden is growing by leaps and bounds.

So nice to see bright and cheerful flowers this morning, as the weather outside is frightful, we are having a spring snow! The blue flowers are beautiful too and I really like the cream/beige combo.

Renata said...

Deine Blumen haben so tolle Farben! Gefallen mir total gut!
Und die Pferdebox - herzallerliebst!

Viele Grüße!

Your flowers make me think of spring -- too bad I have a new snowfall outside my window. lol Well hopefully next week it will be Spring inside and out.

Birdie said...

Love all your flowers, but the red and pink are great.

Where would we be without those hexagons Raewyn. They are just the best portable project ever and I think I will be making mine forever. Nice to see your progress.
Love Shirley.

Marieke said...

Indeed: bright and cheerful. But I also love your blue once. And what's a woman got to do? You can't help it! :-)

Leeann said...

He probably thought postage was cheaper than sending you to the quilt shop again! That beige project looks interesting, I'll have to stay tuned to see what you do with it.

LuAnn said...
