Bee-ing again

The hip bee block this month was sooo easy. Really, could not have been made more simple. What did Collette want? An off centre Log Cabin. She precut all those strips. labelled them carefully, so we would know which order to add them, and hey presto,

A collection of these is gathering at her house, and she will assemble them into something wonderful. 

Speaking of Bees,  I am more or less at the end of the ' Quilt around the World,' which was fun, if a mixed blessing at times. It stretched my imagination, and frustrated me, in a feast or famine way, so in a sense I am glad to be done with it... well, I have an angel block to do for someone whose blocks went missing in the post, and there is one more set due to come in, I think...but that is unclear, as its owner had to drop out for very good reasons, so I do not know where it is heading... 

And so, I feel I have a little gap in the schedule. 
And I also know a couple of others, who are ready for the next challenge.. 
so I have joined another bee. I am not sure when it will start- possibly when there are a couple more members to get the number up to 12. We have 8 confirmed at the moment!

This one is to be a 'Fat Stash Brit Bee' . The idea is, in your month you send out a fat quarters worth of fabric to the bee members, and they make a block using other fabrics from their own stash, to your design. 

Anyone else up for it?? Might be fun!

If so, have a look here  and come and join us. It should be fun!

Collette chose some really lovely fabrics. I'm not going to join any more bees this year, or a least until I've finished a lot more of my WIP's.

Collette did a wonderful job of making it easy for us. Your new bee sounds interesting and I hope your last block turns up.
