Worldwide Friends: the last of the loot

The last two days have seen a lot of traffic into my mailbox.

Screen Shot 2015-03-13 at 12.30.38 pmFirst, I got a lovely squidgy envelope from Viv in France, with more of that fabulous Java print which gives such zing to some of the hexie flowers. She’d already contributed, so this was especially generous, and I’m very grateful.

Sue and I are organising the Foot²Freestyle Block Swap Party together, so if you haven’t had a look at what that’s all about, hop over and take a look here – we only need one or two more people to make it work. Sue’s over on the Pacific Northwest coast of the US, so we have interesting times working out when each other is awake!

Sue sent me some lovely indigo, dark red and ecru fabrics, and the floral indigo is especially lovely as it’s African, to add to the other fabrics of all nations!

Well, we’re all packed, and off this morning. The hexie kit is in my shoulder bag, the camera’s in the top box where I can get at it quickly, and my laptop’s in my pannier. See you in about 650km (400miles)…

    Best way to cool down is to send some warmth our way. It was 3°C here this morning with all cars sporting white rooves and we are down to 1°C now at 20:20hrs. May thre road rise with you with smooth and steady passage!

    Lovely loot. The weather in tending to cooler and more autumnal down here so riding should be pleasant.

      Just arrived in Childers, our usual halfway stopping point. The ride really wasn’t too bad, but I’m sore and uncomfortable in the hip department, and getting out of the bike gear was an absolute pleasure. Nice moderate 32C all the way down… Let’s see what Brisbane and then Dorrigo have to throw at us!

  4. Stay safe, and have a great time.

  8. […] hexie flowers from them, just for something different. Thanks to the help of these and an earlier second donation from Viv, the final piece of the front is going to be as interesting and varied as the other […]
