Hexagon Wednesday

BooHooHoo. Sniff! My hexagon box is empty. I am feeling so forlorn right now. I'll have a good cry and then get on to cutting more fabric for making more friends. Surely they'll appear by the end of the day. Am I wishing too hard?  I think I'm starting to feel better already. What do I spy with my little eyes, peeking at me from around the corner?
Why it's one of my friends! I had faith things would work out for me today. Since I have one friend now I know there will be more friends to show you next time. Please visit me again to find out who appeared. By the way, If you are wondering why all the threads, it is because I sew it the English way and the paper is still in.

Santa Came Early
 My DH came back from the mailbox and handed me this envelope. I thought "I wasn't expecting anything". I opened it and found this inside. Was I amazed!
I had read other blogs and how quilters were receiving gifts just because of a small favour or act of kindness done for someone they did not know. How touched I was that it happened to me for such a simple gesture I willingly did. It was Leona that sent me the unexpected gift and I will treasure it always. I thank you very much, Leona, for your kindness. As I told Leona, butterflies have been on my list of quilts to make so as I am making it I will be thinking of her.

Very cute hexie peeking out there. :) My hexie box is also empty. :( Lovely surprise you received in the mail.

If it's time to refill your box, that means you've been a busy hexie maker. My box is either full or empty, and right now it looks like yours.
Surprises in the mail brighten any day.

Love your little flower and your special surprise! Also, is that a finger pincushion in your box? I'm thinking I'd like to try using one of those when I do hand sewing especially for the hexies.

Great flower and don't you just hate it when all your little basted hexies are gone. Surprises in the mail are always fun, any mail from friends is a welcome sight in my house.
