Hip Bee activity

 A little over a week ago, some fabric came through my door. Well, not on it's own, but beautifully wrapped, and sealed in a plastic posting envelope. I had an inkling of what might be inside, because the August mama for the hipbees had sent stuff out, and I knew, other folk had received theirs. So, it was opened.
 Now, I think this is beautifully wrapped and fastened. That soft grey, with the orange ribbon, hasn't Reene made a gift of the sending?
 So, with a little encouragement from DD2, we open the package.












I knew she was sending summersville.
But which ones from the range?
 The house print in their turquoisey blue!



 And some plain orange, and the green and blue swirly print, and that Blotchy orange, and the crosshatching!

From this a house must be built.

Several other bee members are ahead of me, so I need to get my thoughts organised.

And, somehow an Elizabethan style house grew in my mind. Upper storey wider than downstairs, and a line of timber dividing them,
 A bird perches and sings territory on the roof, and a small garden round the front.
I am quite pleased with my house, and I believe Reene is happy with it too. That is the bit that matters!
So that went in the post yesterday, and arrived today! Prompt service from the PO for once.
