More bee blocks and a KAL

I finally had time to return to my sewing room for the first time in a few weeks.  I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my family but it is so tiring.  I spent the weekend finishing up some bee blocks.  The first is for the South Florida Modern Quilt Guild Bee.  The December Queen requested a shoo fly block using a text fabric that she provided.  I really like this block.

I also made the December blocks for the Simply Modern Bee.  One lady requested a block using yellow and gray fabrics and the other lady choose blues.

I was able to finish piecing a quilt top today that I will be donating to Project Linus.  I made a carpenter star using HST's.  I need to find time now to get it quilted.

On the knitting front, my friend K-Ro has been trying to distract me from knitting on my Derecho shawl.  We are making it as part of a KAL with our friend Charity.  I just started section 6 and K-Ro keeps placing Jedi mind tricks on me to distract me from knitting.  See K-Ro!! It's working!!  Tonight, I'm updating my blog instead of knitting!!  BUT, football is on tonight so I'll get quite a bit done this evening.

I just have to share a picture of my little man dreaming in his sock monkey bed.

  1. Stopping by after the "party." I realized i'd not looked at any blog entries except the party ones, so am filling that gap. I really like your carpenter star block--the arrangement of prints together and with the plan between is stunning.
