Miscellany

I'm getting caught up in Ringo Pie bee blocks.  This one is for Charise's Paris theme.


Ringo Pie block for Charise--Paris theme.  Gave it to her in person when I was in Seattle.


This one is for Marit in Ringo Pie with her butterfly theme. (Inspired by Anna at Life Sew Crafty)

Butterfly block for Marit


I've been sashing the bee blocks I received in the Cocorico Bee.  I love these blocks so so much!

a terrible picture of some fabulous blocks


I took a picture of the bee blocks I've received from my Ringo Pie bee friends.  I feel like the luckiest girl in the world!  These will end up in a very special quilt for Henry. (Blocks left to right starting with the top row are by Amber, Penny, Leila, Charise, Anna and Kerry)


Ringo Pie guitar blocks so far


And, lastly, here is a picture of Charise and me from my recent visit to Seattle.  It was so much fun to hand off her block in person and it was even more fun to go fabric shopping with her.   I guess I have no shame when it comes to fabric.  I bought 48 fabric cuts!  Thank goodness that a lot of those were 1/4 and 1/8 yard cuts.  

i met Charise!!!

So, there is a lot of little bits of progress over here. Well, except for any stash minimizing. I can't seem to manage that at all.

All of a sudden my 18 lb. purchase from Fabric.com doesn't sound unreasonable. :o) (I did have to get 1/2 yard cuts though & got some big (very big) pieces of Kona for backgrounds.)
