Aaaargh! No TV!

For some reason, there is only snow on the TV-screen tonight :-( Hate that! But it will give me some time to work on my newest project, a hexagon-flower pillowcase! The kids have so many huge pillows to play with, and some of them are in desperate need of a face-lift!

I am late sending some fabric to Tia :-(
But since I'm late, she'll get these 5 fat quarters added to what I was planning to send. I am buying fabrics for a new Plain Spoken, and was buying solids for that. So instead of buying FQ's, I got 50 cm of each so we could each get a FQ.
Aren't they great? I am really excited about collecting fabrics for this quilt -can you tell?!
I got these four beautiful 6" squares as a bonus-prize from Jen at Crafty Giveaways! YAY! They are stunning, thank you so much :-) If you haven't been to her blog, go right now!!! She's giving away lots of wonderful stuff every week... Too good to miss!
And I apologize for taking all the photos on my newly dyed sofa....I just love it so much :-)

Ooh - such pretty colors! And they look gorgeous against your new turquoise sofa. Isn't it wonderful when a project turns out so excellent?

your slipcover looks amazing, and i could see why it would be the backdrop to all your photos.

I love those colours that you have picked out and I loved your box with all the fabric.

your box of hexagons are so neat... a question... how do you cut haxagons? plus make sure that all are te same size? I already had difficultly with squares... :)

You have bought so good colours! I´ve still done more painting than sewing. Have a nice weekend!

I'm so glad your squares made it there. I asked the guy at the post office a few times, "Are you sure it will be okay in just this envelope?" Thank you for posting to the flickr group. I can't wait to see your flowers!

I think your Hexagon-flower pillowcase is going to look great! You have chosen pretty colours!
My latest quilt would look perfect on your new turquoise sofa-cover!!!But I'm sorry to tell you it already has an owner!

Thank you all for the nice comments :-)

@Jen: I was so happy when the squares arrived! I have made one attempt at a flower, but undid it and ironed out all the folds..... That was definately a redo :-) Your tutorial is great and very detailed, I just have too many thumbs!!!

@suzie: LOL! True, it would look good :-) But then, that quilt would look good anywhere!
