Could I bee any happier?!

Over the weekend I finished my last two little stitchings for the Fat Quarterly Retreat swap so just need to get these pretties on some teatowels



I also managed to get my Blogger's BOM blocks done for March and April:


On a roll I just finished these two blocks for charity Bee Blessed:


Hope they're ok Judith! They're like a boy and a girl converging corners!

It was fun making them and I was glad to dip into my scrap bin giant bag because it looks like this:


Serendipitous then that Sana should post about joining a bee that is using scraps and asking for followers! It's called Scrappy? Sew bee it! (great name!!) and is being run by the delightful May over at Confessions of a fabraholic. She is so sweet, incredibly organised and very helpful - I've gleaned all that just from emailing her today so I'll be happy to get to know her and the other bee members better!
If you'd like to join there's still room so go see May and sign up :)

I've never been in a bee before but already I'm enjoying it and so glad I joined on a whim!!

In other fun news, the gorgeous Katie is starting a fun link party each week for hand stitched items. This is such a great idea and I can't wait to see what hand sewing there is around blogland!

There and Back


Check out her great blog There & Back then get to hand sewing something and I'll see you there on Friday! Maybe with some progress on this:

The icing on the cake today had to be the wonderful news that the lovely Cindy of Fluffy Sheep Quilting has opened her online shop!

Metro Living Circles Bundle

I'm in love with this bundle of Metro Living Circles - yum!

Cindy's having a giveaway on her blog, she's offering a discount code for the shop and there are links to three other amazing bloggers hosting Fluffy Sheep giveaways!! So head HERE to get all that!

Yes that is me being lazy and too tired to type all the links myself!! (sorry ladies!) ;)

Off to enter those giveaways and catch up on some blog reading before I drop off to sleep!

Oh and just a reminder that I'll be announcing the winner of the Fugly Fabric Party and the gorgeous bundle from Prints To Polka Dots tomorrow! I have a mad busy day so just to let you know it'll probably be after I've had my tea (dinner!)
