Minimal amount of time spent in my girl cave thus far in November… between vacation (more on DC/NYC as soon as I dump photos from Steve’s camera), Jöelle’s baby shower, and being gone over Thanksgiving weekend, this past weekend was really my only chance to catch up on my bee blocks.
First, I made 2 blocks for Carla for One Block Over. She sent the birdies, and requested us to use our scraps for the rest and “frame” out the birds into 12″ blocks. So a log cabin block, my favorite (so she says with her voice dripping with sarcasm). I tried to get the pain over with as quickly as possible. (Yes, I am crazy – I would rather make half-square triangles or paper piece over log cabins any day of the week…I’m really not sure why I despise log cabins so much!).
Next, I whipped up a block to send to Val for her Heroes Helping Heroes string quilt she’s putting together to help raise money for cancer research. Now, I actually don’t have a specific reason/person that has/had cancer, but I know that won’t always be the case. I’m all about trying to make that path a bit easier for those who walk it in the future, so whatever I can do to help us progress toward improved cancer treatments, I’m in!
And finally, I dug deep into my stash, found a few purple fabrics, with a cream for the background, to make this star block for a special project:
You know, for purple being one of my favorite colors (to wear, especially), I really don’t have much in terms of purple fabric. Very sad, I must fix that!
