I was a sewing madwoman last night. I was tossing scraps around, ironing like a crazy person, and digging in my newly organized stash. All for this block.
This one is for the Pastiche Bee. The theme for February is Alice in Wonderland so I chose painting the roses red. The block still might need some top stitching, but it is exciting to get a bee block together again.
I felt a little rusty before last night. I haven't designed a block from scratch since early November. But, you'll see a lot more designed blocks this year. I'm in the Cocorico Bee, Pastiche Bee and I was invited to join the Ringo Pie Bee. I'm super excited to be surrounded by so many talented sewists. The inspiration in these bees is unparalleled. So far I'm drawing blocks for a John Keats poem and a theme of Pippi Longstocking. I can't wait to see what comes next!
