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

Thank you, Di Sercombe, for the gorgeous March hexie flowers. I love the colors you chose and the "Sewing Machine" card is adorable.

It's finally spring in Texas!  There are wildflowers growing everywhere.
Hello, April!
Here's to a new month and new "Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap" lists.  March was a quiet month, no new members and no members leaving.  The April lists have been sent by email.  A little reminder:  we're making 1-inch hexagon flowers for each other. (That is 1-inch on the side, not across.)  Please remember also to let the person who sent you flowers know that you've received them and let the person you're sending know that their flowers are on the way.  I find that Facebook is really a fast way to communicate so check out our Facebook page if you haven't done so already.
Enjoy your sewing!
Hugs,
Irene
