When I visit my lovely Brit Bees, I always come away with more than I arrive!

Brit Bee Gifts! Mar14

I have unashamedly pinched some of these pics from Susan’s blog. Hadley made us all these fab Brit Bee key fobs, and my ridiculous grin there on the right is because I’m holding a beautiful gift quilt from Trudi! Just the binding to stitch down and then I’ll take some proper pics of it, promise!

Susan's HR donated quilt to Bee Blessed

You may have seen this Heather Ross quilt recently on Susan’s blog.  She is gifting it to Bee Blessed – thank you my lovely!

Quilted blocks for Alison Mar14

Ceri passed me some of her ‘early works’ to use for Bee Blessed or other good cause.  As the blocks were all bigger than 12.5″ I decided to quilt them, then trim them down to 12.5″ and send them over to Alison for her Mexican Quilts Appeal (Soy Amado).  Alison will sew all donated quilted blocks together to make quilts for former street kids in Mexico. Take some time to read about her visit at Christmas and the inspiration behind this great cause.

On Saturday I’m teaching my first Crochet workshop.  I wanted to have a wee sample of crochet edging to add to my growing pile of samples, so I edged this summery vintage pillowcase.

Have a lovely day!
