Bee Sting

Okay, so for now (except for finishing up my guild's swap) I am all done swapping. You would think that would mean taking a break, right? Of course not! I am in the Bee Beautiful bee and I am absolutely loving it. It has been so much fun to be in a bee with some old friends, or should I say long-time friends, and making some new ones. The only thing I feel badly about it is that I am the only Canadian in the group, so it takes longer for my fabric to come, which means that I start later than everyone else and of course, it also takes longer for the finished block to arrive.

The Bee Beautiful women are truly beautiful and have been so wonderful that I decided that I wanted to be in another bee. I had talked to Ariane about starting a bee for Canadian quilters (there are always less of us) and then I found the Quilting Bee Blocks group on flickr . It has a list of bees looking for people. I looked through the list and there was a Canadian one looking for a few more members. I joined the Sew Modern Bee, and so did Ariane, and Sarah. Now we have 12 members and are starting the bee in May.

I guess I have been stung by a couple of bees.I may also have been stung by the quilt a long as well. I'll let you know next week. It all depends on how much time I have or think I have, which is always less than I really do.

It is fun to be "bee stung" it always makes me reach further than I would have.
