I spent about a week getting bundles of fabric together to mail to two of my online Quilting Bees (this process took WAY longer than I ever thought it would!) They are mailed out, and I am slowly getting blocks back in the mail. It is so neat to see what others will create for you!
I finished some Bee Blocks for others, one early, and one super late. The first one for CNSnow was the early one, a fun improv block that whipped up so quickly and is a LARGE block measuring in at 16.5" x 16.5"! The second set for prsd4tim2 will be what I consider a bee fail on my part. This has nothing to do with construction, the construction of the blocks is fine, but rather my dissatisfaction with trying to translate what was in my head to fabric! Oh and the fact that I sent these blocks about 2 weeks late....boo! on my part, and I am sorry about that. The first block, though cute reminds me of Smurf houses, with a huge off-scale snowman who apparently is the evil over-lord in the village. A bit creepier than I intended. The second block was supposed to be a simple house highlighted by two candy cane columns, but instead just appears to be a Chinese Food Restaurant, and don't even lie to me, you know it looks like that. All it needs is a sign that says "Golden Wok." I just hope she doesn't hate them!
No real finishes, though I have made quite some progress in my fabric organization, and can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel! My one new project is the Kaleidoscope Quilt-Along hosted by Don't Call Me Betsy. All my pieces are cut, all my hst are sewn on, and the real piecing has started. I actually put together two blocks last night and was pleasantly surprised at how flat they laid, and miraculously the inside points lined up pretty darn good, if I do say so myself! Pictures to come at a later point!
Well folks, that about sums it up! Here is to a productive and new crafty week!
