A couple of seriously late bee blocks that nearly did me in....I think McMojo had the DTs!
|going to be a fun Aliens Love Underpants quilt though..|
McMojo started to play nice a couple of days later and so I managed to piece the backing for the bonadoochi quilt. Can you see the join?
Last week I had a week's leave (well, 3 days) to recover from some serious hard work and a pretty rubbish cold, to prepare for and celebrate the wee man's 3rd birthday (WTF!) and to have some sewing time. That boiled done to Thursday and one day's sewing to tackle a bee block mountain that won't go away. I went to find McMojo and staged an intervention. Rehab baby yeah!
First up, a litre of coffee and some left over birthday cake (chocolate victoria sponge sandwiched with white choc butter icing and covered in choc fudge icing, since you asked) then a divided basket that needed to be handed over as a gift the next day...

Next up, some more Bumbling Honey bee blocks...this time for Clare
|some really neat points there|
Finally, I tackled a bee block that should have been done way back in February *hangs head in shame*. Beth asked for everyone to make a flower representative of where they live as part of the Quilt Around the World II bee so there were many lovely and diverse blocks. I was the last stop on the journey and they have been sat sitting on my sewing table for a long time. I was always planning to make a thistle and since it was referendum day on Thursday, it felt right to get it done and done.
|pretty neat, huh?|

And for all of you brave souls who have lasted this long, here's the other reason that sewing has taken a bit of a back seat recently....
|either singing or yelling poo...it's always one or the other!|
Happy birthday, my sweet boy x
