Friday Night with Friends...

First Friday night of the month is FNwF in Blogland and after missing the August one, I was determined to join in this month!
I continued to work on my hexie flowers for an Instagram swap that I signed up for. The plan had been that I would work on the project while we travelled so that when we arrived home, I would have them all ready to post. Didn't happen did it? I needed better light and my magnifier was definitely needed, neither of which I had with me, so progress was extremely slow. 
I had glued a number of hexies to the papers whilst on holiday so have been doing a few stitching sessions this last week. Last night during FNwF saw the most progress...but still a lot to do. The flowers in the foreground were a request for 'mix it up'; others wanted the 'petals' cut from the same fabric and the other pair were 'eye spy' with 'mix it up' petals. 


The flowers ( we have to make 2 for each person in our group of 17 people) have to be sent to the members of the group by September 30, but I had received some before we left on our trip on July 22 and there were another 7 lots waiting for me when I got home last week. They are all so beautiful; the fabrics used are so pretty.

First photo is the hexie flowers I received in July...


And the ones which arrived while we were away. It was like Christmas opening all the envelopes! :-)



We had to list the colours/ themes etc that we wanted. No surprises...I asked for blues, teals and purples :-)
Oh well, instead of writing about stitching these, I'd best get on and stitch some more!

Exciting to have all those gorgeous hexies arriving in the mail. So can you send them off as you finish a set, or do you have to send them all at the same time? You'll get them done in time, you're good at deadlines:)

I've enjoyed your holiday posts but it doesn't take long to get back into the routine when you get back does it? All of the hexie flowers are pretty, yours and theirs.
Have a nice weekend.
