Long time no speak. Thank you all for your get well wishes! I’m slowly starting to recover following my surgery and 2 post-op infections. I’m not back to sewing on the machine yet but I have managed to do a bit of tapestry and hexie stitching so it’s not all bad. My sick bed is rather welcoming so it’s not a chore to spend time on it. Hubby hung my Marcelle Medallion for me last weekend 🙂
It’s my turn to be Queen bee in the HipBees. I foolishly thought it would be less stressful to have the other bees sewing for me this month, knowing that I wouldn’t be able to sew and not wanting to let anyone else down, what I didn’t consider was the amount of work involved in putting the fabrics together for 11 people…anyway, 3 weeks after starting to put packages together they are finally ready for posting and will be on their way to the other HipBees tomorrow 🙂
I’ve asked the HipBees to make 8 small string blocks each for me so that I can finally finish a project that I started last year. Each package contains a lovely selection of Denyse Schmidt fabrics; Flea Market Fancy, Hope Valley, Florence and Shelburne Falls, some grey kona strips, a grey rectangle for writing their siggies and 8 – 5″ squares of paper for use as foundation templates.
Half the bees will have predominantly red/pink/orange/brown fabrics with half as many blue/green/grey fabrics and the other half will have the opposite. Each bee member will make 4 straightforward string blocks like so…
