GERMANY BOUND

I made my first bee block for the Scrappy? Sew bee it group. This little block is off to it's new home in Germany this afternoon. May asked for a star gazing block in rainbow colours. I am just showing you a little peek as I think she should see it first.


I had a wee scrap of this bee fabric that I thought was very fitting : )

I worked a bit on my Sunday Morning quilt. I had to do SOMETHING while the paint dried.


I love making these blocks. So easy, and pretty much anything goes as far as light colours.


Lastly I had dinner with some of my kids. I took the opportunity to snap a pic of Jane on her quilt.
When I went to baste it, my batting was 2" too small.  Oh well, there's always next week.



I think she likes it.
