Yikes!  Cardstock does sound like a good idea now.  Shocked

Bit slower than I planned, but I decided to stitch up all the hexies that needed stitching before I sent everything in one fell swoop.  All packs now assembled, addressed, and hopefully ready to go in the post tomorrow morning!  ^_^

(Although I might see if I can rustle up a bit more card for bracing - I still haven't forgotten/forgiven what happened to CraftADDchick's first envelope last time....)
I missed the last swap; what happened?  I've been trying to decide on the best way to send them.  Quaggy's arrived in a regular envelope without incident, but I'm worried about doing that for the international packages.

Check out this abundant selection that quaggy sent.  Thank you so much!

My uncle has a place just south of Dallas, and that's where we stayed on the way to Austin.  Clara got to meet a lot of critters there, including Belgian horses.  I had to step away, because they thought I was giving them a snack.  Shocked


The scenery there is so different than what we have in Missouri.  Definitely no cacti or palm trees here!


She wanted to go on a ride along but settled for just taking her picture with this officer (she's up by the light bar).

Whatthepuck, I'm so sorry to hear about your kitty.  Saying goodbye to a family member is just the worst.  Sad

We have been having adventures (along with a few misadventures), but I have been so lax about posting.  I'm sorry, PFD!

Here's Clara under the arch.  She is lucky that she's young and selfies taken under the chin aren't a bad thing.


The Mississippi was still up, so Clara couldn't get on the cobblestones at the river ( I did find some for her on higher ground later).  She's on the riverfront with the Eads Bridge behind her.


Does anyone else remember these?  I used to get these as a kid and noticed they were available again.  So bad yet so good!


On the way to Austin we passed through Dallas.

I have everything cut already, but I'm waiting to send everything at once.  I'm hoping to get Amazon's hexies stitched today or tomorrow so I can mail by the end of the week.

Clara and I are still knocking about!  We have been to downtown St. Louis and last week we were in Texas.  I will post a few photos in the next couple of days.

I had an interview on tuesday, got to sign the contract on wednesday and had my first day at work today!
Congratulations on your new job!!!  Whatcha doing? (I hope it's OK to ask)
Thanks, I'll be helping people with their housekeeping (mainly cleaning, washing, some cooking if needed). Most of the clients are elderly people or people with disabilities.
Noble work, indeed!  Before my father in law passed he had someone come in a few days a week and help with light household chores and laundry.  It was such a big help!

Bellydance picnic (it was quite warm!)

I met her in Austin this past week at ABDC!  I was so busy getting skirts made at the last minute I didn't get to check in here.  Too bad, or she could have made two LV scrapbooks this round.  Grin

You guys!  Don't make me the tiny hexies...I admit I was rushed in doing my questionnaire so I cut and pasted from something else!  Just make the 1.5 hexies!  I need to check everything...I am traveling in July so I need to get everything cut before I go or else I won't make the deadline...I am going to do my best not to do duplicates...I don't mind them myself since everything I do is scrappy or used in other projects!
I started cutting for you in multiples of 2.  I misread and thought you wanted 2-6 of each print.  I will cut the rest of the 3.5" squares as singles but will send what I already have cut if it's OK with you.

0,5" hexies, I thought Amazon Warrior was crazy last year with her tiny 3/4 " hexies and now some people want even smaller ones Cheesy

I didn't ask for stitched hexies this year, because I found out it's easier if you use one standard sized template. The first few rounds I didn't notice the very slight size difference in templates, but after several rounds it became more and more noticeable. One person last year used bought templates, white ones with a hole in it, and they seem to be the best size. Do you happen to remember the brand name of those?

I bought a punch that will make uniform 1/2" hexies, so that's why I went with that.  I think I'm going to make a color wash something (wall hanging?  runner?  quilt?), but I'm not 100% on that.  I also thought about putting diamonds between the hexies; who knows what will actually happen? LOL

I asked for fabric only for the reason you cited.  I was afraid that I would end up receiving slightly different sizes that I would have to make fit.

I have been gone without my Craftster password and couldn't log in.  The suspense was killing me!  Shocked
I got in late last night, so I've got  a bit of catching up to do before I begin to play.  I can't wait to commence digging, though!

Aspenwall, I don't have a favorite collection.  I've always chosen fabrics individually rather than as a group.  I do tend to like Tula Pink, Alexander Henry, Bonnie Christine, Paula Nadelstern, and Dear Stella.  Please do not consider this a shopping list, though.  Tula and Kaffe are the only designers I can recognize; I don't even know who I have in my stash (ironically enough neither of these).  When I purchase any fabric I look at color and pattern before the selvage, so I'm not really brand or designer loyal.
