Modern Irish Bee Post!

They came flyin' through the letter box today!  Yes!  My Modern Irish Bee blocks!  I was queen bee for September and I asked for a block that was laden with HSTs.  I think many ladies were ready to boot me from the bee as soon as they saw my tester block, but thankfully they were too polite to actually toss me out.

I can not tell you how excited I am to see these blocks in person.  Do you want to see them too?  Here they are all lined up on my design wall...as best I can.  I'm pretty sort, so it's hard to reach high and keep them aligned.


My many, many thanks to you Judith, Eva, Anneliese, Karen and Karen!  They are absolutely gorgeous.
