Firstly I want to say a huge THANK YOU to Helen and Archie for the stunning thread catcher!

You may have seen a few of these ‘thank you’s’ from Helen popping up over blogland!  Aren’t they spectacular!  It was such a lovely surprise to open this wee beauty, all beautifully wrapped, and the stitching is amazing. 

I’ve been meaning to blog about this for a few days now, but there’s a hole in my head that leaks important stuff, on an alarmingly regular basis!

Thank you Helen for my thank you!!

And on to Bee news:

August is the first month of the Hipbees bee and Reene is our Queenie for the month!  She has asked for house blocks, using her gorgeous Summerville and klona grey.  Here’s what I came up with:

Didn’t quite get doggy in the centre of the window, but then she shouldn’t be upstairs in the house anyway!!  Naughty doggy!

This was paper pieced using a 7 section pattern from a book!  It was a relief that it all worked out ok with no major catastrophies!

I have other blocks to make for 3 other bees I’m in, so I’d better get right on it!

Hope you are having a great week so far!
