Bee Blocks!

Phew I knew July was going to be a busy month between finishing my festival of quilts submission and deadlines at work but it ran on until august.. then September. I finally found and opened all the bee post I received for two  Flickr bees i was “Queen” in July today.

First up…. I chose 30s repros as my theme for the I Love Lucy Bee- aren’t they lovely?

The other bee… is Fat Stash Bee and I chose loosely cat themed, granny squares and cat blocks… isn’t everyone creative! The aim is to turn this into a quilt for a friend….P1110095 P1110096 P1110097

Can you tell my favourites?? Seriously love Nikki’s Foundation Pieced Cat and the applique ones 🙂

I’m really not loving Flickr at the moment.. since the app update I can’t access group discussions or Flickr mail! Considering I spend my working week on the computer (with two screens) I really can’t face going on it at home nor can my poor phone cope with the internet version…

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend.

July Bees!

This month I’m Queen in two online quilting bees which basically means that I choose a theme/design and each individual in the bee does their own interpretation of it and sends it to me 🙂

First up the I Love Lucy Bee.. it wasn’t hard to pick my theme this month combining epp with 30s repros is a given right?

Then there’s the UK Fat Stash Bee where you send each bee member a FQ worth of fabric and they mix n match from their own stash. Here is what I sent…. altho the kitties do change colour as does the polka and the other smaller pieces.

Here’s what I’ve chosen… either a granny square with kitty in the middle or a patchwork cat block. My cat mad friend birthday is in a few months so thought this might be apt 🙂

Can’t wait to see what I get back! Now on to some projects…

So with the price increases the postal service has gotten worse! I’m  used to my post being delivered before 9am now I’m lucky if it’s here before 3pm.

However I did have a lovely surprise this week- isn’t she gorgeous?
