After a wee break in December, we were back making bee blocks in January for Siblings Together (Bee 2).
Sue was queen bee for January, and set this Tic Tac Toe block, with black on white backgrounds and colourful prints for the rest. (here is the tutorial if you fancy having a go at this easy block)
I was queen bee in September, and set the Canvas block. Last week I managed to get them all sewn together into a sizeable flimsy!
I’m taking a 2nd stint as Queen bee, so its my turn again in February! Watch this space!
In September 2015, Brit Bee started our 4th round. If you’ve been keeping up with us, you will know we never stick to the annual schedule! But we are a forgiving and patient lot, forged by longevity and great friendships!
By some miracle I have managed to keep up with the schedule (ish!) and earlier this month I made the last block! Woohoo!
This one is for Katy, in her chosen solids, and the block was designed by Hadley.
As the first one finished, I’ll try hard not to capitalise on bragging rights at our Brit Bee retreat next month!
One of our traditions in Brit Bee is to exchange Secret Santa gifts at Christmas. In previous years we’ve done things like, cushions, decorations, pin-cushions.
This year we went for zippy pouches – you can see what I made for Katy here.
And what did I get?
Only this gorgeous package of cuteness from Ange!
Isn’t it adorable! And I have a feeling it will come in handy for travelling to our retreat!
