Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap September 2016 Lists

Wow!  It’s September already.  Where did our Northern Hemisphere summer go?  It seems like we were just celebrating the beginning of summer.  I know some of you are looking at the end of winter and are looking forward to summer.  Can you tell that my favorite season is summer?
 
This month we welcome Tessa Johnson from Iowa, USA and Debbie Sprague from Florida, USA.  We're also saying good-by to Lori Jones from Tennessee USA.
 
On another topic, as we all know, all things eventually come to an end, and I am at the point where I have more than enough flowers for my Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt and will be leaving the group.  So saying, I’m hoping that one of you will be willing to take over organizing our monthly flower swap. Please let me know if you’re interested.  The  system I use is not difficult to use as long as you’re familiar with Excel. Of course,  you’re free to work out your own system.  I will stick around through the end of the year  but if no one comes forward by then I guess the group will have to shut down. Please let me know if you’re interested.
 
The September 2016 lists have been emailed to you. Please let me know if you find any errors.
Hugs,
Irene

IHFS August 2016 Lists

Hello, August!
It's hot in Texas!  We're still enjoying summer in the USA. I hope everyone is enjoying the weather, wherever you are and also enjoying your sewing. 
 
A couple of reminders:  The flowers you sew should be of 100% cotton. If you use scraps, which is perfectly fine, just make sure they are 100% cotton. I know that sometimes "life" gets in the way of our sewing. It happens to all of us but please communicate with your swap partner and let them know if their flowers may be late and when they can expect to receive them.

The August 2016 Lists have been emailed. Please let me know if you find a problem.
Happy Sewing,
Irene

IHFS July 2016 Lists

Welcome July!
This month we also welcome Lynne Thiessen from Canada to the Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap.  We're glad you're here.
 
The lists for July have been emailed. Please let me know if you find any errors.
 
Speaking of errors, for some reason, there were a few errors in our June lists.  I had Michele BaDour and Helen Turner sewing flowers for themselves instead of each other.  I have corrected the error but am sending them their flowers, no need to send to each other.  I hope you like the flowers I'm sewing for you.  
 
Enjoy July and happy sewing,
Irene

OMG, it's May!
















OMG, it's May!  This is something I am just now realizing on May3rd and that's why the "Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap" lists are late. This month we welcome Shelley Melnyk from Ohio, USA to our group. Glad to have you, Shelley.
 
The May 2016 Swap Roster and Member Lists have been emailed to you. Finally. Please let me know if you find any problems. Just a little reminder to use 100% cotton scraps if you're going through your scrap pile or even purchasing new fabric.  Also the hexies are to measure 1 inch on each side.
Enjoy your sewing,
Irene
