December Bee Blocks

Happy New Year's Eve y'all!  I am back today to share the rest of my December Bee Blocks with you.  I really enjoy the virtual quilting bees that I am participating in via Flickr.  I have definitely tried out some blocks that I never would have otherwise and have enjoyed the challenge and inspiration. :-)

First up, is the PBee&J swap that I am in ... I made this wonky house block for Corley. This is a block I wouldn't have tried on my own, but I am glad I did!
In this swap, we also make a signature block.  She asked for a 5" square, and I chose to make it a mini house.
I also made two more wonky-style blocks for December.  This time, they were log cabins and for the do.Good Stitches bee, which is a charity bee.  Anna, our quilter this month, asked for white, aqua/turquoise and white blocks.  I hope my colors are on target and will blend well with the others.
And the second block ...
Well, that is all for now!  :-)  Have a great New Year's Eve everyone!  See you tomorrow :)

4th Quarter Bee Blocks

Hi again!  I was so excited to start sewing for fun today ... with absolutely no letter shirt orders on the books! :-)  I am working on quilting a large quilt for a friend and I will share that soon, but I also had some time to get caught up on some bee blocks for a few swaps. 

For now, I will share the blocks I made for the 3 x 6 - 4th quarter swap.  I was in beehive 9 for this one.  Basically, you make 6 of the same block in different color ways. I chose to do a pinwheel block.

Here's one in aqua, green and white ...
Pink, orange and yellow ...
Red, aqua and white ...
This one with black, red, white, and gray ...
Gray, red and white ...
And purple, gray and white ...
I hope all my fellow stitchers love their blocks!  :-)

Back tomorrow with some more bee blocks to close out December & 2010!

Stay warm!

The snowstorm of 2010 left us with this ...
For the most part, beautiful ... minus the 3 hours of no power.  But at least it was a short period without electricity ... especially since this is perfect weather for using our new Keurig coffee maker! :-)

Hope you are all staying warm!

White Christmas!

Hi everyone!  I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas!  We had a nice day visiting with my mister's family in the morning and then heading to my parents' home in the afternoon.  We got home just before all the snow settled in ... we now have about 5 inches or so.  I will try and post a few pictures of that tomorrow.  :-) For now, I will leave you with a picture of our Christmas tree ...
Take care and talk with you soon! :-)

Paper Crafts Mag

Hi!  Can you believe Christmas is less than two weeks away?  Good grief do I have a lot of projects left to finish!  A few more shirts, a quilt, a few other projects, and more ... better get back to work!

I did want to share some news ... the PaperCrafts Jan/Feb 2011 issue is out and I have a fun shaped card in it ... you can even download my template from the PC website!  Here's the magazine you'll be looking for at the store ...
It's blisteringly cold here and we may get a little white stuff on Thursday ... which I would love, but then we'd have to make up the day next Wednesday instead of having a 2 day week.  I think I'd rather just get the school days over with!  ha!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  :-)
