MY FIRST BEE

I have joined an on-line quilting bee  : )  This is something I have wanted to do for a long time but never really knew how. I saw Sana posted about it and there was still room, so I joined-------then immediately broke out in a cold sweat!
There are 13 of us from around the world, so it will be fun to get mail from all over. My month is September, when I will ask my partners for a particular block.

The group is called Scrappy? Sew bee it

The first person I am making a block for is May. She lives in Germany and  blogs over at  www.maylifeonline.blogspot.com

I will be posting pictures of the blocks as I make them. (maybe I am to keep them a secret til they are received ? ) I can't wait to get started.

........and I got little Janie's top almost done. Just needs borders, but it's enough for her big photo shoot on Thursday. As you can see, I still have projects spilling out of my bin.




Don't forget about the Bloggers Quilt Festival starting on the 18th

What a cute project! That's awesome that it's going to be part of the photo shoot! Hope you have fun in your bee - it's always so good for me to have a little something new and different from my usual projects each month.
