It was fitting that I spent the last day of 2011 working on bee blocks. I "discovered" bees this year and fell in love. L.O.V.E. I am lucky enough to be in 4 bees in 2012 and I just can not wait to dive in.
Why are bees so great? I love meeting new folks, following new blogs, trying new things as my bee-mates circulate their requests and learn something new about combining fabrics each month. What a great way to expand my horizons!
I fixed up my Sew & Bee Happy red star from yesterday, thank goodness! It's looking better this time around :) One point is a little skimpy, but it will have to do.
I made two blocks for Judith's Bee Blessed. This month we are to make any block we want and she will put together a sampler quilt. Great idea! I have liked this block for quite some time, but never have an excuse to make/use it.
And finally I made a big Wonky Star block for my Sew & Bee Happy quilt. I think this will look nice with the scattered tri-star blocks folks are making this month (as seen in yesterday's post). Boy this one comes together so quickly as compared to the Stargazing blocks. I am already itching to make another!
Happy new year to all of you. It was a pleasure to meet so many of you in this past year. I feel so very lucky to be included in such a wonderful group of kind, giving, inspirational, creative folks. Thank you all for brightening each and every day! I wish you health, happiness and fabulous crafting in 2012. xx
