Catching Up on Bee Blocks

You can tell that it's been another crazy week for me around here because I haven't been able to post anything. Despite that I have been stealing moments here and there to sew. Recently, I sent out bee blocks for October. In the Hope Circle of the do. Good Stitches Bee Kat asked us to make Bento Box Blocks using greens, blues, browns and blacks. My first attempt at my Blue Block proves that you shouldn't sew to try to cure insomnia.

At least I caught my mistake early and was able to rectify it quickly.

Then, in the Sewn Together Bee, Amber sent us all some fabulous black, white, blue and green fabrics for us to create so string blocks for her. I'm sensing a trend with this color palate right now.



And finally, I sent my dear friend Danielle some PJs for her daughter Hadley. Danielle is among my group of friends who didn't know of my "undercover" sewing obsession until I went public with it recently. She saw the PJs I made for Arden when I posted them on Facebook and immediately asked for some for her youngest in purple. I was more than happy to oblige.


So, despite my silence I have been doing some stitching. And I'm hoping things will return to normal again around her next week.


  1. See, now I thought that first block looked really cool... until I read what it was meant to be - doh! Still, they all look fab both forwards and backwards :oD

  2. Your string blocks look fabulous!

  3. You've been busy! That black, white, blue and green combo is really great.

  4. I would absolutely love to find the pattern for the purple pj,s. They are adorable and would make a wonderful Christmas gift..

  5. I've made a similar shirt that you have for the pj's. I couldn't decide how to finish out the inner flap. Button, snap or tie. Which one did you use?
