Back to work

Yesterday 2 of my Bee friends and I sewed some blocks for a super secret project. We sewed and unsewed and laughed, a lot. It was great fun and we got our portion of the project done. I will tell you more once the project has been given. The next Bee project is a block swap. 9" and 6" stars. Medium tones. We can each select a star we want to make. The challenge will be to put all the blocks together once we have swapped. I have been pondering what stars and what colors for ages and I am no closer to a decision than I was when we first embarked on this swap.
Any suggestions?

Today, sadly there was no sewing for me. I have been avoiding the removal of all things Christmas because it is sad to see it all go. ( Ok I also dislike all the work involved in getting it all down, packed, and stored). The Santa and reindeer collections are packed and stored. The snowman collection is down and stored as well. The tree is down and stored along with the lights. My DD #2 helped me pack up the tree and put away some of the ornaments. I just have a small village to pack up and the rest of the ornaments. So, time for summer hahaha

Lucky for me I work tomorrow .( I work part time in my LQS. Work is really the wrong word since I get to play with fabric all day and hang out with other quilters). The only problem with working at the shop, is that it is too much temptation.

keep stitchin


  1. I know what you mean about taking down the Christmas stuff. No fun at all.

    Interesting sway. I really like all the wonky stars that have been around lately. Here is a pic of one on a tutorial: http://thesillyboodilly.blogspot.com/2009/02/wonky-star-tutorial.html

  2. Oops! Meant to write interesting *swap*!

  3. Thanks Christine, I took a quick look at that site and I am going back ad look at the whole tutorial. Beth

  4. For a fact, packing Christmas away is not nearly as much fun as dragging it all out!
    That's a cute star pattern, and what fun it must be, working in that fabric store! ---"Love"
