Queen Diana, Hive 1

These may look a little off with shadows from a nearby bush but I couldn’t fuss with the picture much because it’s 10 degrees below zero here in northern Wisconsin!  I spent the day with my mother yesterday-packed a White sewing machine that I found in a “free” stack at a rummage last summer and worked on these blocks.  She loved them so much that I think I added a new project to my list of must dos.

Happy to be back for a third year with the Stashbees.  I have been sewing since I was twelve years old-48 years now and I still feel like a newby with so much creative talent around me.  We all have our ying and yang.  I am a lawyer in a courtroom almost everyday all day- sewing and working with beautiful patterns, colors and fabric takes me away from work—it’s my happy place.  For background while I sew, I often just listen to a local public radio station operated by volunteers with incredible tastes in music in all genres.  I’ve  also been binge watching the Netflix series “Madmen”—a drama consisting of seven seasons with more than 90 episodes so lots of material, and surprisingly contemporary issues.  I also loved the Netflix series “Frankie and Grace.”  Looking forward to learning more about my bee mates.🐝
