After Turbo November, December is proceeding at a snail`s pace. I don`t know whether it`s having been away, having been ill or the prospect of going away at the weekend but production is on a go slow.
Today I managed to make 2 blocks for the Modern Quilt 4 x 5 Bee. A few weeks ago, I chose to make the Blockade block for my fellow hive members as I had fallen in love with all things half square triangle (HST).
I love the Blockade block but you do have to concentrate while making it. My eye sees the pattern but my brain sees something else. It must be a left brain right brain thing but the seam ripper came out of retirement a couple of times! It may also have something to do with the fact that Zaki is under the weather at the moment and needs snuggles A LOT so I now know I can sew and give snuggles if needs be!
Here`s Debbie`s block - her colours are orange, white and mid grey. *Edited to add - Thanks Susan for pointing out the glaring error in Debbie`s block! Looks like the seam ripper will be making a reappearance tomorrow.
and this is Wendy`s block. Her colours are red, black and white and grey.
Another 3 to get done and posted before the mid January deadline. I would like to get these ticked off before I leave for England on Saturday although they will come with me and get posted from there after Christmas.
While we are on the subject of bees, here is the winner of cute conversation of the day.
Zaki - Mummy, do bees like honey?
Me - Well it`s not so much that they like it but that they make honey.
Zaki - What? With toast?
I am sending out big positive thoughts to the universe that my tablerunner from The Modern Christmas Tablerunner swap arrives in the next couple of days. Please please arrive!
