Hello all – I am the worst bee member ever and am soooo sorry! After hearing from Adrienne, I am working on her block and getting it out to her asap. I also found everyone else’s packages. I know some of those were sent out recently, but most are really old. My question to you is what would you like me to do at this point? Some of you have already assembled your quilt tops and so no longer need a block from me, but I would like to offer what I hope will work for you. I make pillows and would be happy to convert your block to a pillow cover and send it out to you. When you have a moment, could you let me know what you would prefer? I will be working on all the blocks today/tomorrow and hope to have them all ready to go by the end of the week. Also, I found a completed block among the packages – I believe it’s for Sharon… Really dropped the ball on this bee, sorry ladies!
Finally got Sharon’s block done! On to Theresa’s! Hope you like it, sharon. I will give it another pressing before shipping. It really doesn’t look this wrinkled in person. 🙂 And it is just sitting crooked on that ruler – it is 12.5″ square, promise.
Hello Everyone! Thanks so much for your kind words and endless patience. My goal for the new year is to be more organized and to finish all the projects left undone for 2009. I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. 😉 Of course, we have been snowbound here, so that has helped. I am finally ready to send my fabric/pattern for the November block. Of course, this is sooo late I am not expecting it right away. When you find time is fine. In looking for the tutorial for the block – churn Dash, I ended up back at Crazy Mom Quilts. With Amanda’s permission, I am including the tutorial from her site. It’s from the 2008 Quilt Along, week 9. Fabrics are cut, instructions printed and all should be shipping on monday. Please let me know if you have any questions at all. This could not be further from my initial idea, but I am really excited to see what it all looks like. Thanks again everyone! Happy New Year!
Hi. I’m Lisa and I live in beautiful NH with my husband, our four great boys (11, 12, 14 & 16), and three cats. I have been quilting for 9 years. I come from a sewing/knitting/crocheting/embroidering family. My grandmother and grandfather had a large dairy farm in Ohio and my grandmother sewed all the quilts for the home. From the stories, it’s hard to imagine how she found time to sleep. My mother was always crafting when we were kids and it’s only now that I can appreciate how much work she put into making our house a home.
I am fortunate to be making a living through sewing and also my other passion, gardening. During the spring, I work at a garden center and have the exciting job of helping customers make their perennial gardens come to life. In the summer/fall I participate in craft fairs locally and I maintain an etsy shop.
This is my first bee and I cannnot wait to see everyone’s work! As I mentioned, we have cats. Although my fabric is well out of their reach, sometimes the fur flies around. 🙂 If anyone is allergic, please let me know and I will make sure your block is kept unexposed to the lovelies.
