In my mailbox today

Crafters are such a generous bunch!

I keep finding inchy hexie flowers in my letterbox, which are the perfect flowers for me because I am allergic to most others.

They often show up for no reason, not as part of a swap, and it's always a lovely un-hex-pected surprise. (OK OK, that was a really really bad pun I know.) They always seem to show when I really need a pick-me-up (although I have to admit you could pick any weekday and that would apply).

Also in my mailbox today was a couple of metres of a gorgeous deep purple from Bella Solids. I'm sure you know where that will be going ... MUST resist ... MUST resist ....

Now that the purple has arrived it is so tempting to crack open a pack of Terrain fabric hexagons and get started on another new quilt, but I am determined to finish my Faux Wedding Ring first.

And I have a great idea for a giveaway which I really want to make for you this weekend. (That's what I said last weekend.) No hints, except to say "Oo la la, J'adore fabrique". OK, I give in, here's a visual hint too.
And tomorrow is the deadline for this month's swap and I still haven't done mine. I better crack on with that right now.

But before I go I just want to say a big thank you to EllieK for today's sweet flower and also to Mommaduck for her little bunch a while ago (sorry I neglected to thank you earlier) and also Doris and Shannon.
