Rainy Queen's Birthday

It's a long weekend here in Australia. Even though we don't have our own Queen, we're part of the English Commonwealth and celebrate the Queen's birthday holiday.

The weather hasn't been too kind and it's been cold, overcast, drizzling and now raining for the last few days. The kids have been happy to sit and watch Scooby Doo DVD's (yes, it's our new craze) which means that mummy can snuggle up with the kids and make hexies.

These are the hexies which I've made over the past couple of days


I think this one is my favourite. Pink spotty fabric reminds me of icecream and fairy floss.


Today I plan on working on my Terrain Starflower blocks... and maybe a few more hexies later on :-)

  1. Love the colors of your hexies. I've seen several references to fairy floss lately. I wonder if that 's what Americans call cotton candy. I'm off to do a Google search. Enjoy your snuggly weather.

    Yes fairy floss is cotton candy.

  3. Hasn't the weather been awful?

    Being empty-nesters, he has been pottering, I have spent a lot of time with my crafts: sewing blocks on the machine or knitting in front of the television; and in reading blogs and drafting some posts of my own!

    Bring on some winter sunshine!

  5. I am loving those colours in combination in your hexi flowers - and those fussy cut hexi's for the centres! Gorgeous!!!
    I am hating the cold up here in Darwin atm, so I don't know how you're living over/down there! I am loathing the fact that we have more louvres than walls here atm!

  7. Those are so pretty! I keep seeing Hexies and yet I have not done a lot of them in my "quilting life". I need to get into the swing of things, don't I?

  11. I love the springy look to your hexies.Your description about hand sewing and snuggling with kids and DVD's made me reminiscent of countless hours of Batman, and Disney movies while I hand quilted little mini quilts and snuggled with my boys. :) Enjoy it! Too soon they grow up and just want you to take them places!!

  14. The hexies look great. I beg to differ on Australia not having a queen tho. Back in the seventies it was made official that QEII was the Queen of Australia. When I became an Australian citizen I had to renounce my allegiance to the Queen of England and pledge allegiance to the Queen of Australia, which was a bit weird considering they were one and the same person.

  15. Those hexies are SO pretty, as someone who has always had a plain centre in my hexies, I am starting to change my mind! I saw some on a blog that were made with 7 different fabrics and they looked great. :)
