Bee block finishes and a swap.

Since my last post I have been beavering away at my outstanding November  'Bee Block To Do' list.

To recap, I finished Catherine's in the hipBees

I just love this pattern and have another block all cut out ready to sew and turn into a cushion for my Mum's Christmas present.

I managed to catch up and make Reene's October hipBee blocks. They are string blocks using her DS stash. They look so effective and pretty. Reene is going to have a beautiful quilt once the blocks are all pieced together. 

I pieced these blocks at the East Midland Modern Quilt Group meeting last Saturday. I always forget to take a photograph of the meetings but I just caught this sunset as we were just about to leave.
If you live anywhere in the East Midlands and would like to join us, check out the Flickr group and come to the next meeting.

My mystery Brit Bee blocks cannot be fully revealed but there are stars involved… these are bright stars and I enjoyed working on these.

Finally, but not least, I need to make a 16" mega block for Charlotte in the Bee a Brit Stingy group. I am ashamed to say that I haven't completed it and tomorrow is the last day of November. Charlotte, if you are reading this, then the block will be with you early next week. I had a little trouble in the low volume department and Ange has bailed me out so I can get this block completed this weekend.

Again, this is going to be a brilliant block. I love making flying geese so I am eager to finish this block off. It won't be happening tomorrow though, as I am heading off to Manchester to see our Elder Son at University. I have cooked several meals, soup and made an apple crumble to take with me. It is nice to be able to spoil my boy as he is missing home and all men like food!
