Flocks of Geese!

For Leonie
 We are making geese.. Well, when I say we, what I mean is some of that group calling themselves Lazy Bums.
You see, we have agreed an internal bee, running fairly randomly- well we are the Lazy Bums- between November last year, and October-ish this year. The idea is that we shall each make 10 blocks in total for other members of the group, but we all know what is to be made already, and can do it as the humour strikes. No sitting around wondering when we shall be told, and actually, if we want to wait until September is disappearing, and then do all in a rush and flurry, fair do, we can do that.

But I quite like to be ahead if I can, if I have a deadline- it is when there is no deadline that I am in trouble...
For Gi
 Some of us, like Leonie up there, designed their own blocks,
some of us, like Gi sitting off to my Left, took a pattern and just specified certain parameters.. light star, darker ground...







Some others also took an established pattern and said 'NO SPIDERS' - Kathinca, I think you have a secret yen for a spider or two...
Can I find a spider here for you? Sadly, no

and these spiders are all owls... and dinosaurs

For Annaliese
 These would not print correctly for me, from the document sent, but I also got measurements and was able to draw the diagram. I love these, they are very pretty. Love your choice, Annaliese.



And these pretties for my good friend May.


So, you see I have been quietly busy here.












In the garden I am delighted to report that I have actually seen my winter flowering clematis winterly flowering!

I tried to get proof...

 Those white blobs are buds. The wind is up and they were not prepared to sit still even long enough to get a focus....
 I tried again...
If you look carefully you can see the flowers out, white and printed inside with red.. But at least I have seen them this year, last year I blinked and missed them!

In case you are wondering I am standing beneath them, head bent back on my neck, arms upstretched and hoping they do not escape as the shutter goes..


Happy flowers everyone.

Lovely bee blocks! I also made a 'no spiders' request for my bee blocks but followed it up with 'and no bees, wasps, butterflies, insects in general'!!

Your blocks look lovely. Happy New Year!
