OMG November: Typography Hexie Swap

I haven't done a swap in a long time.  But when I saw the Typography Hexie Swap, I couldn't resist.  I also figured it was a pretty simple one.  Four different text hexies for four different people to be sent out by November 11.  Since I've spent the past year or two collecting text fabrics, that meant I didn't have to go out and buy anything.  And I think I can get 16 hexies made fairly quickly.  Even with all the sewing I'm doing for the middle school musical.
Here are the fabrics I've chosen, including some of my hoarded Elementary from Sweetwater and a little DaySail.  (Excuse the bad lighting--I took the photo late at night.)  The hexie papers are recycled from a project of my daughter's for school that didn't print correctly on the card stock--so I used my fancy hexie punch so at least the paper wasn't wasted.
I've already received my first batch from someone, taped inside a Kandinsky card!  Kandinsky is one of my favorite artists.  And now I feel the need to get some fancy cards for swaps.
Not sure what I'll make with the hexies I get.  I'm also planning to make an extra set for myself. ;-)  Either I'll add some more of my own, wait for another hexie swap, or just have a really mini mini in the end.
