Playing Catch-up

As a result of being in a 'funk,' I fell behind in my quilting bee obligations!!!
So I've been playing catch-up as of late!
The block below was made for Viv of the MMSB...
She sent out the white, and we (the worker bees) were asked to make a flying geese circle using our fabric of one color. I chose orange...I LOVE orange!! This was meant for March...and I sent it in May...I'm totally ashamed. Sorry Viv!!!

This block was made for Catherine of the Maple Leaf Bee...
I LOVE the charcoal in this block...and the green too! And I enjoy paper-piecing as long as there is plenty of extra fabric...there was some nail biting...and cursing at the seams...LOL
This one was also meant for March...and was sent in May...Sorry Catherine!!!

The next 2 blocks were made for Heather of the Maple Leaf Bee...she sent out pieces of vinatge sheets and asked that we make pinwheel blocks of our choice. We were allowed to add a solid if we wished...


The vintage sheets brought back memories of staying at Nana's house...and I'm really looking forward to seeing how this quilt is going to turn out...I'm thinking "Light & Airy"
That's it for now...I'm off to tackle the next set of tardy blocks!
CHEERS!!!

Out of the Loop!!

So I've been out of the loop for a couple of months!!!

We've had a rough couple of months with the stomach flu, and colds, and the winter blahs (that would be me!) My eldest daughter was in and out of the hospital for 1 week at the end of April...which took a lot out of me and the fam...Thank goodness it wasn't anything major and she recovered and is back to her usual self...including turning 9!!! And my Baby turned 2!
BUT NOW...I'm out of my funk!!!!! And while I've been in my funk...I've become very behind on all my quilting bees...I'm SOOOOO sorry to all my quilting bee buddies!

I'm going to post all my recent finishes in another post...except for my Quilt for Haiti!!
It's all done...and been sent to Tammy ...who's going to get them to Rebecca...who will deliver them to the people devestated by the earthquake! This was such a feel-good project...and I love the way it turned out...I hope it put a smile on a little person face and a hug in their heart!
