My First Bee.....

I have never been in a bee before.....

Well, not a regular one!

I did swap embroidery blocks on a couple of 

occasions last year or the year before....

I'm pretty excited to be participating in this bee...

(aka "Modern Stitching Bee"!)

August is Leanne's month and she requested....

Grannies, with a border!

I made this one before I realised she wanted 


That'll teach me to not read the instructions 


This, however, is an official one!

and this one too....

I hope Leanne enjoys them as much as I enjoyed 

making them for her!

What bees are you participating in at the moment?



  1. I love grannies and yours are extra special!!

  2. They are wonderful, I love them, thank you so much!

  3. Great Grannies! I especially like them since they are orange and yellow themed.
    I'm in the Great Granny QAL, is that like a bee?

  4. Congrats on the bee! I'm in Modern Blocks Been, Always Bee Learning, & do.Good Stitches. I love the scrappy grannies - maybe even better than the regulars!

  5. Loving the blocks the blue and orange one if my favourite!
    I'm not in any bees but I have joined a lot of fabric swaps lately =D

  6. Great blocks! No bees....just bee-ing lazy! LOL!

  7. Great blocks! So fun to participate in a Bee - I'm sure you'll love it!

  8. Your blocks turned out great. Leanne will really love them, I am sure.

  9. They're so nice, I do love the grannies. No bees here either, but I'd like to try one at some stage (maybe when the kids are a bit older and I get some more time). They look like a lot of fun!

  10. Anyone would be lucky to have you in their bee, good for you!!

  11. OOoh! I love the orange and blue block especially! Look at you busting out something beautiful for your first bee :)

  12. Oh hell, I am home now and must look into all of this. Thanks! Your blocks look brilliant.

  13. Great job....not just on the blocks but you have gotten Susan cussing...of course that is easy to do. Maybe I should have got Susan scurrying about!

  14. I love your blocks!!! You'll have fun in your bee and we'll have fun seeing your wonderful creations every month!

  15. Beautiful granny blocks!I haven't joined in a bee yet but they always look like fun.

  16. Yay, my package arrived today! and yip, there's a few of the prints I never had. Can't wait to start playing! Thank you so much!
