My lovely friend Sheila, sent me a gorgeous table topper for Christmas along with these pretty purple blooms.

Another lovely friend, Lynda(no blog), sent me this project holder for my birthday. I just love it & have a project already in mind to store in it. :)

Here is a full view of both outside & inside. Along with the holder was included some hexagon templates. Lynda must’ve read my mind as i need some 1” templates for a project from Natalie Birds Tis the Season stitchery book. Aren’t i lucky to have 2 such lovely friends. :)

As it is Thursday i’m a day late with posting my hexies. I was going to stop at 100 with the 1” hexies & decide whether to add a path or not. I’ve not counted the hexies for a while & decided to do so today. The count for the 1” hexies is at 107, bit over the 100 i know. :) The 1/2” hexies are at 66 & the 1/4” are at 22.Picture 079 Picture 080

The 1” & 1/2” hexie blooms,

& the 1/4”.

I decided this year not to make a gingerbread house but to make a star tree. I really hate the recipes supplied with the cutters. I managed to get the dough to work in the end but the stars didn’t cook properly. I think my oven was going out on strike with all the cooking it did on the 24th. Lol. With a bit of determination & luck i managed to get the stars stacked & decorated.

Ah, how nice of your friend...that looks like a great project holder. And as always I love the "baby" blooms!!

I can't believe how many flowers you have made! I love all your gifts and the star tree is wonderfully different! Wishing you a very happy New Year Jeanette!

You've got some great presents from your friends. I really love the projectholder.
And the hexieflowers you've made are so nice (and so many...). A pleasure to look at. As is your star tree!
Best wishes for 2011 Jeanette.

You've made soooo many flowers. That's amazing! Such nice pressies too!! I like your star tree a lot! I think that would be a fun little project to make with my girls.

Hi Jeanette, I don't know why I haven't come across your blog before. I was born in Ipswich but moved away many moons ago. Live in Newcastle now, but still have cousins up there. :-)
I have been making hexie flowers for a craft forum swap, they are quite addictive. I also love Bronwyn Hayes stitceries. I plan on doing Jenny Elefantz BOM and Vicki/Dawns BOM as well.
I am a follower of your blog.
Bye for now, Sandy.
