Blonde Moment

Seriously, I am not as dumb as my blog posts from this week have made me seem but I sure have been having a lot of blonde moments lately. No offense to any blondes out there. I'm actually a natural blonde underneath all the crazy colors! This particular blonde moment came this weekend. I had noticed that it had been rather quiet on our message board for the Red and Aqua 2 Bee. Usually, as the end of the month nears, the board lights up with the new block for the upcoming month. I thought it was so odd that no one had posted instructions yet. Until I realized why... Yep this was MY month. Serious Blonde Moment. Now, in my defense, my original month was supposed to be October and I even have it on my calendar, but we had someone drop out of the bee recently and her month was September so everyone shifted up a month. And I didn't realize until Saturday. Yikes! Thankfully, I knew the design I wanted AND I had all the fabric waiting in my stash but it needed to be cut and sent out like yesterday. And wouldn't you know, this week is a hell of a week at work so time has not been on my side. The goal was to get everything in the mail on Monday. That didn't happen. But I did get it out on Tuesday after coming home at 10 PM on Monday night and cutting my little heart out. So I guess this week is all about sharing all of my mistakes with everyone out there. I feel so exposed.

Red & Aqua 2 Bee September Fabrics

I am excited about these blocks, though. I am having everyone make me a Quatrefoil Block from this tutorial on the Modify Tradition Blog. I provided enough fabric for everyone to be able to make choices about fabric placement and to make two blocks if they have the time and desire. I can't wait to see how they come together!
