Hexie happiness and FNSI results

A lovely surprise arrived in my letter box, from Lynette.  She thought I might like some hexies for my pink and red hexie collection...and I do like them, in fact I love them.  She also included some hexies for me to sew if I am having a bad day and am stuck in bed.  Such a wonderful and kind thing to do.  I'm so sorry I don't have your email address, Lynette, please get in touch...I'd love to make a couple for you.
I'm lucky enough to attend classes with lovely Di Ford Hall and I'm making her beautiful quilt Rotherfield Greys.  I'm up to the hexies on the fourth border and I started making them last night as part of Friday Night Sew In organised by Wendy at Sugar Lane Designs.  Many many thanks to Wendy for organising this fun event for us.
These are 3/4" hexies and they seem so big because I've been making lots of 3/8" lately.  I need a couple of hundred so I'll try to grab some time to make some more over the weekend.
If you'd like to learn a bit about Di please follow this LINK.
Did you Di Ford Hall has designed her own fabric range and there is a beautiful free pattern available at the Andover Fabric site?

Just go HERE to download a copy.  If you check out the Free Patterns section you will find a whole lot more fabulous free patterns.

I'm not feeling brilliant today so I'm going to lie on the couch, watch my favourite gothic horror show ...Penny Dreadful... and make hexies.  Should be fun.
Hope you have a fun day too
