This week I finished a custom order for a lovely lady. She makes beaded jewellery and wanted some smart quilted mats to work on. The customer chose the fabric combinations and left the rest to me. She is delighted with them and that makes me happy!
This week has also been about bees. Quilting bees that is. The lovely Lynz is Miss June in the Hipbees and sent the most gorgeous fabrics along with this little fella.
A fimo bee pin!
Lynz asked us to make an improv log cabin block. This is my first improv block and I loved making it. I think I will be trying some more soon!
needs a little press!
I am also a member of a stash quilting bee, Bee a Brit Stingy, and this month it is my turn to be queen bee. My hubby thinks that is hilarious how we call them bees etc in the world of quilting and patchwork. I didn't manage to jump on the scrappy trip along bandwagon first time round so decided I would like to have one of my own. The ladies are making beautiful blocks for me in bright, fresh colours and I have already started receiving some.
These two are from Sheila of Bluepatch Quilter. She even added a cheeky wee fat eighth of lovely fabric! I love the little birds!
I received two gorgeous blocks from Charlotte of Displacement Activity also. I love the Anna Maria Horner ( always a fave).
I have 3 days left of my 30 day shred dvd! I can't believe I have got to this point. I am feeling fitter and stronger and a little leaner. It all takes time and patience of course as well as hardwork and being careful what I eat. I have another dvd to start which seems great. So just plodding along with it at the mo.
Thanks so much for reading. Oh and I am hoping to hold a wee sneaky giveaway in the next wee while. I don't normally bother with number of followers and such like but I want to do something for my loyal readers. I will tell more soon!
