Of Bees and Meregirls
Our Blockheadz Bee quilt block swap is in full swing! This is the first time I have ever organized anything like this. Of late, I've been occasionally consumed with the details of running an online block swap. I am pretty good at organizing things, so running a bee never intimidated me (maybe it should have a bit more, LOL!)
Just when I think there is going to be an issue, OUT comes a good solution. I confess, for one second, I panicked. "What if we have to mail stuff again?? What was I thinking??"
Our first gal sent out her fabric. As it turns out, we are just shy of having enough of one color fabric. In creative endeavors, that's just an opportunity for imagination and creativity to kick in, right?

Actually, it wasn't like I was looking for something to make for Meredith. I first found the meregirl pattern. Then had the idea of putting the two of them together in a sort of mermaid yin and yang.
I love how they came out. Maybe Meredith will too. Next is OCTOBUNNY! This is the wildest looking embroidery I have done so far... and in an artsy fartsy way, that makes it really fun.
