So I just made it this month….I thought I’d get everything done easily, but no. I suppose I’ve had social stuff and extra work stuff all conspiring against me and my quilting. Nevermind, I did it even if is super last minute!
My proudest achievement this month is my finished Bee Strip.
This is the first time I’ve made flying geese and I have to say it wasn’t too bad. This is what they looked like before the strip…
First things first………. I just want to say a BIG thank you to everyone who visited my blog over the past few days and left a lovely comment. Plus thanks very much for all your advice, I reeeeally appreciate you … Continue reading →

At first I wasn’t sure about the yellow, but after making them up I think it works fine and gives a nice little lift to the blocks.
I think I’ve been having a bit of a relapse this week after all the excitement of finishing my quilt…. been sooo tired in the evenings. This is probably made worse by my inablilty to go to bed before midnight. I don’t know why but I seem to find it physically impossible to do so!
Anyway because of this I’ve been planning my next projects instead. To help me along I ordered these which arrived yesterday…
