Do Good January

My bees were a bit quiet in the month of December, thank goodness, so I am thrilled to be back to them this month.  I've been diligently trying to get them all finished this week so they're all received before the 31st.  Fingers crossed!

I have a few Do Good blocks to show you.  This month we were to make two star blocks using white stars on a blue background using this tute.  It surprised me to see how little blue I had in my stash!  Thank goodness this month's mama didn't mind if we repeated patterns in the two blocks.  I would not have had 18 individual blue prints to choose from!




These pretties are on their way to Australia.  Fingers crossed they arrive safely!

Lovely blues, and you know I have a soft spot for stars.

Lovely blocks.

Hmmm Navy and proper blue are pretty short in my stash too.... its always Aqua and Teal innit. Gorgeous blocks though, looks like stars on a proper velvety sky.

Beautiful blocks! I'm short on blue too...

Yay for the first blocks of the season! I have tons of blue, but next to no yellow or purple, and hardly any more orange or pink...

The blocks are lovely. I love the blues, but tend to have more aquas than darker blues too.

The blues help the white star to really stand out. Well done on getting through your bee commitments! Jxo
