It is the middle of November and I am concentrating on getting bee blocks completed.
In the hipBees, Catherine asked for some great blocks. I am definitely going to make another block and make it up into a cushion for a Christmas present for my Mum. It would look great in Christmas fabric too. I could be tempted to make a candle mat with this block if I have enough time before Christmas.
I had a little trouble with these blocks. Firstly, I was a smidgen short of the black fabric. It isn't very short but it doesn't work if I use the short piece. I also BURNT one of the blocks with my iron. Younger Son has obviously been ironing as my ironing board and iron are a bit of a mess. I was rather sick at the thought of remaking the block but with a little Vanish and oxidiser I think that I have got away with it. (If it doesn't pass muster then I will gladly make another block, Catherine.)

Catherine is going to finish off the incomplete block for me. These are going in the post today and I can give myself a big tick on my 'Bee Block To Do' list!
