The hipBee bee is underway!
For our first month, our queen bee, Reene, has asked for house blocks. This block was on my holiday "To Do" list and was made one warm sunny evening. I really wanted to try paper piecing, so egged on by Trudi (T gave me some freezer paper), I decided to make my block following a pattern from this book. Now, it is always a risk to try something new when it matters if you muck up, but this did not deter me. Oh no, I just fearlessly went cutting into Reene's Summerville whilst also hoping that it would all turn out fine.

Fortunately it did turn out ok with no mishaps. I really enjoyed the freezer paper technique and will not be shy of using this method again. So one bee block done and a new skill mastered!
