October Hive 4 fineto -

Hey Christy -
I finished these last week and put them on my design wall and forgot to send them to you!  eek! 

They were so fun to do!
My creams are a little different b/c I had Kona Bone and then cut it wrong and didn't have enough for 2. 
But I hope you like! 
I used my favorite fabric, the brown w/ chandeliers!
I used to be a lighting designer so I'm obsessed w/ chandeliers, ha! 
Happy Thanksgiving all!!!

Hive 4 blocks [final post]

A little bit late for October, but here are my final sets of blocks for Stash Bee as I won't be signing up for 2014 - I'm expecting our first child in February next year and I think that will keep me busy enough!


November (I love this block - such a great method for putting it together)

Thank you to everyone for a great year and a half of lovely blocks, and thank you for the ones you sent me back in October last year! I still haven't done anything with them, but I will. I promise.

It's been great getting to know you all!

Blocks for Alison

Two blocks for Alison

Oh dear, they were disaster from the beginning, these two are the fourth and fifth attempts after much unpicking and a fortune in the swear box.  I think the design is lovely, the method just does not enter my brain patterns.  Today is gray and dull and I had to photograph them indoors and because I was trying to avoid shadows the one on the right looks an odd shape, it is the same size and shape as its friend, i promise.  Only Allah makes that which is perfect, so maybe my blocks will keep the universe on an even keel with everyone else's perfect ones.

Hive 4 September and October

Hi Ladies, 

here are your blocks for September

 And October.

Sorry they're late - I will post them this week. Apologies it's only one each - I just can't afford to send two by international post (it costs me $7 for each parcel if it's over 50g).

Hive #4 November blocks for Alison

While I was making the 2nd block, I thought I'd screwed it up. As I was making its replacement, I figured out what I'd done wrong - so you get three.  Love the trio of colors together.

Hive #4 November block...

Wow, hard to believe these are the last blocks for Hive #4.  What a great hive we've had, thank you all and especially to Carol for being such a great leader!  

Alison, I hope you like the blocks.  They were fun to make!  The blocks are square it's just a crooked photo.  I'll get them in the mail next week.


Hive 4 October blocks

Sorry they are a little late but hope you like them.
