Hexies and a Name!

Finally I've found a name that sits just right for my little crafting cabin!  It's taken quite a long
while ........... So, welcome to ............." The Beehive"!  What do you think??  When I was thinking of  various names, it occurred to me I like to do numerous types of craft in that little space .....  At times it is overflowing with creativity  ............  I'm also very, very keen for my little cabin (aka: Beehive or "The Hive"), to look cute and have flowers  which will also attract the small birds, and the bees for pollinating the "kitchen" garden that will be growing around it!   That's when it occurred to me that I'm usually busy as a bee ....... Therefore, having a beehive to Bee Busy crafting in, creating Sweetness galore ...... it just  makes perfect sense to me!!!
   Sew...... Meantime  I've been busy getting some of the large hexies made up for the table cloth I'm making that will go onto the table in " the Bee Hive"!  And finally, I've got a Hexie post in time to link up with Anthea who host the EPP.   I'm so happy that some of you have decided to answer my call for some signature blocks which will become the centres of some of the flowers. 

 I'm also thrilled that even those who were a bit u sure of making the finished Hexie, still made an embroidered centre and sent that with enough fabric surrounding that I'll be able to make them into Hexies!  I've been working on a few different colours to surround the signature blocks that have already arrived...... From France, Spain, USA, and a couple from other areas of Australia.  the centre of the cloth has my blog name, and the plan is to surround it with flowers - each with a centre that is a signature Hexie from friends who read my blog.  If you'd like to make a signature Hexie for me, please send me an email or leave a comment  or read this post about it here.  For more info about the signature hexies go here.    
FNSI was postponed last week, and instead a virtual sew in is being hosted by Wendy over the Easter weekend ......... Can't wait to check out all the blogs to see what everyone is doing..... I'll be busy with all sorts of things going on in and around the Hive!

Time for some homemade pumpkin scones and a cuppa!



Take care xo
