Scrappy? Sew bee it! May theme
Hope life has been kind to you and you are all well! Well, thank you; yes everything is just fine in my small corner of the world. Yesterday I took a day off from work - just for lollying about on the coach and enjoying doing nothing at all. I didn't get out of bed until 3 pm...Shame on me, dawdling like this, but I did get those parcels on their way to the winners of the 1st anniversary give away. Puh!
Scrappy? Sew bee it! Here we come! Time for the May theme (he, he...)
It was so fun to dream! I came up with about some 857 different patterns and lots of exciting colourlines.
After all the decision was rather easy as I've been dreaming about this one since I first set my greedy eyes on it:
Stargazing from Modern Blocks it is. And the colourline - rainbow colours on white background. Yes, just like in the picture. Not very original I'm afraid, but this is what I really want to do. Picture by courtesy of Fluffy Sheep quilting. I did start on my first block a couple of days ago, but there are no pictures yet (loitering, you know). The blocks are 12.5" and made out of scraps. The participants of the bee will get a separate email as soon as I've finished this post.
If you feel like joining us, and I really, really hope you do, just leave a comment and I'll contact you with the details. Or you can read everything here.
It is so much fun! The best part of blogging, in my mind, is the contact with similar minded people all over the world, creating something never seen before together. This is a great chance to meet some fun people and try something new. Once a month a new pattern is chosen by the reigning Queen Bee and we have one month time to make a 12,5" block out of scraps. It is such a thrill to see the ideas the Queen Bees come up with and even more when the blocks start coming your way...
Take care; I hope to see you soon again!
Note: The bee is now closed, all 12 places taken. Thank you for your interest; hope to see you next time.
