Coming up for air...

I've been Missing In Action from blog land for a little bit, while I have my Head Down and my Foot to the Pedal finishing some Christmas sewing.... but the urge to blog got too strong today when I was stitching a couple of hexie-flowers... being a Wednesday, I decided to join in for One Flower Wednesday.
Here are two Christmas flowers I made today...


....and backed with felt...two gorgeous wee drink coasters.
Thanks to Melody at The House on the Side of the Hill for this great idea :-)
And thank you to Karen at Journey Of a Quilter, for hosting One Flower Wednesday for us keen hexie-flower-addicts :-)

Time for Head Down and Foot to the Pedal again!! See you all soon — (and thank you for visiting),
And if I don't get back to you in the next few days....
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, to you all and your families.
and thank you for all your blogging friendships and happinesses :-)

(Missing all your blogs but I'll be back and catching up soon!)

What nice hexies. I like how they look in your tree. Great idea with the felt backing.

Hi Raewyn, I though you were going to say head down bum up doing something farmy - so glad to hear you've been busy sewing - the best kind of busy! For that finishing touch re the coaster/tree decoration - if you had a card with a window opening big enough that you could dangle the coaster inside it - perhaps with a removeable hanger - it could then become the ultimate... Xmas card, tree decoration and then ever so useful coaster... the perfect gift!

Susan said...

Very pretty flowers! I just came across those fabrics in my stash today, too!

Hello there Raewyn, I have loved seeing every hexagon you have made this year and the new ones are no exception. The coasters are a great idea, clever Melody and the fabrics you have used are so pretty. Wishing you a very happy christmas.
