A friend within my CARE circle of Do.Good Stitches is having a difficult time at home, so I volunteered to do her bee blocks to take a bit off her to-do list. I am not able to cook or take care of her children when she needs it, but stitching I can do. Hopefully this allows her to focus her time/energy on her family and home instead of being worried about that bee block that's lingering for the month. This month our circle is using this tutorial to make two blocks. I just love this tute and was more than happy to make a few more!
For my Sew Bee Blissful bee, Kris wanted pin wheels using this tutorial by Sew Happy Geek. This is a well written tute, so do give it a try if you have not already. There are lots of ways you could play with your fabric choices to give different effects, so have a little think before you start cutting. So, with Kris' fabrics, I made two of these for her:
And finally, I cut up my charm squares for Jennifer's (of Knotted Thread) I Spy swap. They're already in the post flying off to sunny Hawaii where they'll be re-packed and distributed. I can't get over the fact that my charm squares will have more of a summer than I will! Humpf.
I'm nearly done quilting Granny Mania! Fingers crossed I can show you a photo this week!
