October – Yikes!

I can’t quite believe that September is almost over?  Anyone else with me on this one?

I usually really like this autumnal month, but it just seems to have whizzed past me without me realising!

I had an interesting month bee-wise, being queen bee in 2 of them, and having a hst-fest in the other 2!

The left-hand blocks above are for Brit Bee and Modern Irish Bee respectively. On the right we have the wonky friendship braid I set for the cool Hipbees to make, and they didn’t disappoint!  (They are nearly all in & I can’t wait to show you them!)  Bottom right is the block I set for Sew Bee Happy, which will be donated to Bee Blessed, who are also making these crazy colour blocks this month.

And as if that wasn’t enough bee blocks for one month, the ever-efficient Jan sent us her fabric last week for her month of October in Hipbees!  Her theme was ‘stars in Denyse Schmidt’ so I made her this from the Modern Blocks book:

‘Three Wishes’ pg 186

Also, I already know what I’m to make from my stash for October in Sew Bee Happy – a Granny Squares block, set by Wendi.

But before the last few days of September slip completely through my fingers, I think I’ll take a break from bee blocks until we’re into October proper!

Wishing you all a fun-filled end to September 2012!
