I was not amused!
My sewing room is also the dining room. To be able to feed nine people in there involves removing all my sewing gear. Not like with family where you can slide some of it into corners, but like with guests where it all has to go. Every. Last. Scrap! Himself saw his life pass before his eyes I do believe. He must have because that would explain why he did the extra grocery shop today. And bought me wine. And took Emily to her dance class.
I have a dining room again. Hmmmfff! I have no sewing to show you. Double hmmmfff! This would all be one long rant if not for the post man and the generosity and joy that the lovely blogging world brings forth. The post man and his wonderful deliveries soothed this savage beast.
First I opened an envelope that proved to be from Lynne. Back before the FoQ she challenged anyone attending to take photos of her best buddies there and to post them on Flickr, which I duly did. I did it because it was fun. I didn't expect anything in return but Lynne, in her generosity, told those of us who did meet her challenge that she was posting out 'a little something to each of us'. Uh, a little something! I beg to disagree because this is a big something. I got all this in the post from Lynne today and I am truly gobsmacked and grateful.
These Anthologie Fabrics are gorgeous as the heavier weight variegated Aurifil thread. All I can say to Lynne is a most sincere thank you. Hope I can make something with these to do them justice. I am in love with the leaf print, third from left!
The other envelope I received contained more bee blocks, this time from Fiona, who makes the most wonderfully colourful creations (and I secretly idolise her for it). I think it was her ability to use perle so well that got me wanting to try it. If you have never looked at Fiona's blog then get on over there and find out what I am talking about, please!

I leave you with two possible layouts for my hexies. The first photo was my original plan, but once I laid it out I wasn't so sure. The second photo is the alternative. Could you please proffer some opinions? You've got plenty of time before I will have a chance to sew them together on Monday. Thanks!
