OMG November: Typography Hexie Swap (update)

With all the crazy stuff happening in November, I needed an easy goal.  Thankfully, I met it!  I signed up to do the Typography Hexie Swap--make 4 hexies for 4 different people.  I haven't done a swap in a year or so, so this was a nice, easy one to join in on.  I also made a fifth set of hexies for myself.  The hardest part was deciding which 4 fabrics to choose for the hexies.  I cut into my precious Elementary stash for one of them, and even fussy-cut the recipients initials from it.  Alas, there are no S's on the fabric, so my set has the fancy W below. (Why? Just because I like the fancy letter.)  I was happy when I found these pretty (and inexpensive) green floral, blank-on-the-inside cards at the store to mail my hexies in.
So far, I received three of the sets I should from the swap.  One of the sets came all the way from Australia!
Not sure what I will make with the hexies, yet.  I'll probably get around to cutting a bunch more out of the other text fabrics I have.  There definitely seems to be a gray/teal/green color scheme so far.
Now I've signed up for what I'm hoping is another easy swap--a Polaroid block swap.  Make 2 Polaroid blocks for 10 different people.  That will probably be January's goal.  For now, I think I'm back to focusing on the Library Quilt I've been working on all year.  I'm determined to at least get the top completed in December.  Hopefully, I can squeeze in enough sewing time around all the holiday preparations.
