Thank you Terrie, I liked the way they came up with the hexie by marking the circle. It also explained that the triangle inside the hexagon is the size of triangle I need. This is a really big helper. Thanks for posting this link.

Just thought this may help with the hexies.

Anne,
Thank you for the links. I do have the hexagons but to make the thimble holder necklace I need the triangle, half hex, and diamond. I have been searching on the internet. Which I will continue to do. If I can get it in a jpeg I can send to my cameo silhouette and it will cut out for me. It was just so dissappointing not to even have the choice to print my own or purchase. Usually you get the pieces to make the pattern. Oh well, I think I will send her an email and let her know I was shocked by this. She does not even state how she measures the Hexagon, diamonds, and others. I have seen them measured across the top edge, across the middle from point to point. I am assuming hers is across the top since the website she sends you to has theirs measured this way.

Very useful links Anne thanks for that. Robin, I would not go buying any more things just to make hexagons. You can print the sheets that Anne provided the link for directly onto fusible appliqué sheets and away you go. Very disappointing not to get even one template with the book. :huh:

Hi Robin, I don't know if this website will have the hexies you want docs.google.com/file/d/0B2MpICRS1jdvR2xqeGNPcDZXU1U/edit?pli=1
It has all sizes of hexies that you can print off.
Hope this helps
Anne

Happy Wednesay everyone.
Yesterday I spent part of the day rearranging my sewing room. I am trying to get organized, but I sure make a mess in the process. I need to start sewing more of my larger blocks as well as working on a new Tiger Tile Scene on my embroidery machine. I have been fustrated with the fabric pulling and causing wrinkles when I am stitching something that is dense. So I heard from one of my yahoo groups that "Terial Magic" is suppose to do the trick. I have soaked the fabric already and it is all dry, so I will be pressing it today. I followed Anita Goodesign's instructions and then used temporary spray adhesive to make all the layers like one piece of cloth instead of three. I will take a picture of before and after on the same block to show how it works.

I got my books from Cheryl L See "Not Just Hexies" and I am a little dissappointed. She does not give you a template for the size of hexagons, triangles, 1/2 hexagon, or diamond. She uses the order number from another company that you can order your paper pieces from. I am going to continue to make the 1" hexagons and go ahead and order the other shapes so I can make some small projects with my hexagons I have been making. It is like getting a new toy and you can't play with it because there is no batteries! Since I have never made the hexagon's until I saw the show I feel that I have to order the paper pieces so I make sure that I have the right size.

This is the picture of the Terial Magic. I will try and post later today a picture of the embroidery that I did with it.

Have a happy sewing day,

I bought the same floor mats at Sam's about 3 years ago. I am very pleased with mine. My sewing room has hard ceramic tile floors installed over cement in the basement. I use them in the space between my ironing board and my cutting table, where I do a lot of standing. After I got them I noticed that I could stand at the cutting table and ironing board a lot longer without knee and hip pain.

I could not get the link to work for some reason, so I copied the description here.

Get well soon. What a great idea for your floor. Can't wait to see the wall hanging.

I took some pictures of the paint sample strips on the wall and carpet to help my friend in choosing the correct fabrics to match. I had never seen the condo until this weekend and we tried to pick from my stash for her future wall hanging. Her descriptions were not what was the actual colors. So instead of me telling her I thought that the color swatches from the paint samples would help her.

She has labeled each one for which room or what part of the rug and it slips right in her purse for future referance. I think they were really surprised when we went thru each room, bathroom, or rugs.

We made it home in time to get about 6 + inches of snow. I seem to have caught a cough..so today I spent most of the day in bed since I was up all night. I have been working on more of the hexagons since I can sit with my feet up and stay nice and warm with a blanket.

This next picture is of my sewing room floor. It is puzzle pieces foam that I got at Sam's, it was really easy to cut and stops the vibration from my embroidery machine making noises all the way downstairs on the first floor.

I can sweep up the floor quickly, it is not cold, and there is a cushion to walk on. We had to remove the carpet that was in bad shape, so instead of replacing it with carpet that I can't find pins in I have this instead.

Have a great day,
Robin

Losing a mobile phone can be disasterous - we can keep so much info on them. As for your use of paint chips to help with colour matching, yes that is a great technique, if you are not used to carrying colour in your minds eye, and far better than trying to use a photo on a monitor to match to. I'm lucky I can carry colour, but I also have used paint chips in the past, and it is a method I have recommended to brides before now.
