Wow, a WIP Wednesday!

First off, I just have to say WOW!!!   I can't believe the response to my giveaway (still time to enter...click here).  I know I'd love $25 to shop with, but I never figured so many of you would and that you'd want to follow too.  That's what means the most to me.  That you're willing to come back and read more of what little ole me has to say.  I am honored.  :)

Second, wow!  I'm getting to a post on a Wednesday!  I had a few free hours alone this afternoon, so I got to work!  Both fun--catching up on bee blocks, and not-so-fun--catching up on that pile of laundry threatening to take over my laundry room!

So, without further ado, here are my bee blocks in progress...all other progress, which actually is quite a bit since my last post will wait for another day.  Let's not get dragged down with too much unfinished today.  :)

I'm participating in the NuBees Block Swap again but this time there are only 5 of us in a hive, so we only swap 4 blocks.  I chose the same framed patchwork block that I asked the girls of my do. Good Stitches group to make this month.  I had 2.5" squares out anyway, so I just went with the colors each girl requested.  Tonight I'll cut out 2.5" strips in their chosen background color to frame the blocks and make them 12.5".
 
All but the top left block will be framed in white.  That one will be framed in black!  I can't wait to see them all done!

Up next is my Modern Blocks Bee.  Jan asked for square in a square blocks with this fabric.  It should be a quick sew, so I'm hoping to get it done tomorrow morning.  Here's the fabric she sent and an example of what she's looking for...looks easy enough...


Tomorrow I have a few errands to run and some birthday party supplies to buy for a certain blonde 7 year old who is about to turn 8...I don't know if I'm ready.  She asked for a sleepover!  Yikes!   Chris said he's staying somewhere else that night!  haha  :)
