I did catch up on my blocks!

How did you do?

This one is for Amy Smart.

This is for Erika aka Pink! I had to stop and think “do I know an Erika?” when I got her fabric bundle.

And finally, this one is for Nedra.

I also swapped months with a fellow bee member, and quickly sorted and sent out fabric bundles for August. I’m looking forward to getting these blocks back!

I sent everyone a solid, and 3-4 Echino pieces, and asked that some sort of log cabin block be made.  You can read more about it on our blog, here.

Can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to!

    I finished! In spite of the fact that we are having a heat wave, have no a/c, and my sewing machine and iron are in the hottest room in the house. It is 85° in there when the iron isn’t on, and broiling when it is!

    And my project is a mini quilt aka kitchen counter mat to protect my poor formica counter from pans of bar cookies and sheets of rolls. And there is no baking going on here these days LOL.

    I finished! I’m very happy with the result :) It’s a buttercup bag (from a free pattern here: http://www.made-by-rae.com/2009/02/free-buttercup-bag-sewing-pattern/ )
    It’s the first time I’ve made a handbag, plus I added a zip! I’ve used it a lot already and am wondering how many people I can make a handbag for as a gift!
    Love your blocks, especially the second one, very effective :)

    I can’t believe I had so many hexie’s waiting to be sewed together. It felt great to be caught up for about a day and then I cut into a new pile of fabrics and am at it again. :) I also FINALLY made a decision about the centers, though I’m not quite ready to share it yet.

    Beautiful bee blocks!
