Freezer Paper Hexagons

Does anyone else use freezer paper for their hexagons? I first came across the idea from a blog, I can't remember which one now but there was a link to 1" hexagons PDF so I printed it out. Although I use FPT for Dear Jane I had not thought of using FP for the hexagons.

Then I got Fabric of Society and the hexagons were on the pattern sheet so I started photocopying them onto the freezer paper. 
However, occassionally the freezer paper would get stuck going through the printer and it was a pain cutting it out to size....then I remembered that the Dear Jane website had A4 sheets of freezer paper and the fifty sheets even with postage were cheaper than any I could find from here. I am really really happy with the freezer paper I purchased, it is slightly thicker than the one I was using so it is almost like a very thin cardboard and the A4 sheets glide very easily through the printer. And I love the fact that I can iron it on and the hexie stays put while I am sewing.

These two below feature fabric from the latest fabric club mailing from Somerset Patchwork.  the darker rose fabrics are from Sally Rose. I have some of the blues from the collection ready to use also.

And really I should be doing this...but a girl needs a break some time!

We must be mad!

DS no 2, Tim (the baby) is back home for a few months while his and Megs (fiance) house is being built. This is what he landed home with the other Peanut! How do I get talked into these things????
Peanut is a 3yo French Bulldog, her breeding days are over so she is now a pet. She has a lovely quiet temperament so lucky for that! I did say however that she makes Tim's other dog Indigo (a blue english staffy) pretty!!!

A few more dancing dollies hexagons.

A few more candied hexagons.

I have been fiddling with some nine patch blocks I made as leader/enders quite a while ago. Lissa made a pink and four patch quilt which I love and it gave me an idea...auditioning!
