Bee Mental Blocks Finished!!

Nearly finished everything on my todo list! Yay!!

I had run out of Kona Snow in the shop and couldn't finish my Bee Mental blocks, but it came in late yesterday afternoon, so this morning I set to finishing the blocks.  I feel I can pack now, big weight lifted.  I am going to cut back on swaps for a few months - DH is getting ratty with me, because everything I seem to be sewing is for someone else!  I just have to finish my blocks for Melissa's QATB Art Block Swap, and then back to just monthly bees - DSQ10 is tempting me though!

Now all these dresden's are finished I can write my tutorial for them, for the Go! Cutter and then that means giveaway!!

Potholder Pass 5 and Bee Block

I am off to Spain for a few days so have clearing out my to do list for October...

First some Christmas potholders for Potholder Pass 5...

We also had to make an ornament as an extra...

Finally my block for elsiesgirl, the October block for the Fresh Modern Bee.

What a fiddly block!

Guess what arrived in the mail today!?

I had given up hope on my Modern Swappers arriving, as had my swap mama who was in the process of sorting out an angel for me - but lo and behold guess what arrived in the post today! A package full of goodies from Jennifer aka that girl, that quilt!

Some fabulous hexies in Fandango by Kate Spain.

Gorgeous fabric; a couple of bits of Nest by Tula Pink and spots by Heather Ross, plus a cute ceramic necklace with Bliss on it.

A funky kokka pillow for my new studio!

And lastly the cutest little bag! What a lucky girl I am! Thank you Jennifer x

I have done a couple more Dresden Plates with my Go! Cutter, my tutorial for this is nearly finished! These are both for Bee Mental for Spotted Stone and Ochil .

Well, I am starting to get there, i have since moved my sewing machine, Go! Cutter, gadgets, notions etc down but still need to sort out the fireplace and put some quilts on the wall! I will keep some of Lewis' paintings up because I love them despite him telling me that he wanted to build a wall between our spaces! He said he feels like he is painting in someones living room! I am trying very hard not to take it personally!

Starting from Monday I can get back to some serious sewing and give you a proper review of my Go! Cutter
