The Bees Knees

June 7, 2012

I was recently invited to join an online quilting bee, The Bees Knees.  It’s full of amazingly talented women and I totally feel like a bum.  June is our third month…. and I have yet to actually mail any of the completed blocks.  It is actually kind of ridiculous how lame I am at getting to the actual post office.  Anyway, I made this block in April and still haven’t mailed it back.  See, ridiculously lame.

June is my month, and though I had a small setback, I am finally on top of things.  I packaged up little bundles of fabric to all eleven members, included the block from April, and the blocks for May to their respective new owners, and last night I spent a happy 30 minutes decorating envelopes and writing notes to each member on recycled watercolor masterpieces of Creamies. (She could go through a whole ream of paper each week.  I gotta put all that awesome to good use somehow.  My mom’s fridge only has so much space you know…) I am a total nerd and matched the washi tape on the outside to the little bundles of fabric that are on the inside.  Obsessive much?

My new current favorite color combo is turquoise and deep peacock blue with pinks and yellowy gold.  I find myself drawn to it over and over, and only when I look at the number of things that have recently fit into this color group do I really realize how much I love it.  I should take a few more pics of all the things I have been doing in those colors lately.  It’s kind of funny.

Thanks for your sweet comments about my grandpa.  The funeral is tomorrow and I am excited to see all of my brothers and sisters at the same time.  It’s been a while.   I’ll be back soon.

    What a great idea with the kiddo’s paintings! With four, I’ve had plenty of them and instead just snuck them out to recycling while the boys were in bed after sufficient time on the fridge. So wish I had thought of this!

    I drove right by your house today – I should have saved you the postage. But I will admit I’m excited to see that Washi-tape beauty in my mail box. 🙂

    Your fabric package was so fun to receive in the mail! The tape was super cute and it touched my heart to read that your sweet little one is the budding artist behind the little note card. :0)
