Hello good friends!

Hi! Long time, no see! Sorry I have been M.I.A. - I'm alive and well. It's just that my sewing/blogging time and energy available have greatly decreased with a) going back to my full time job and b) being in the middle of a DIY home renovation project.

But... I have been able to squeeze in a few sewing minutes, so I have some stuff for show and tell:)

1) April block for Fat Quarter Shop's Mystery BOM - so pretty in pink, red and aqua:)

2) My first ever bee blocks - for the do.Good Happiness circle. I think this color palette is very sofisticated:)

OK - I may have made a mistake in cutting the pieces for the geese, so their beaks and wings got a bit clipped. Oops! Well, I still like the block.


3) A start to the Modern She Made swap item for my secret partner - also a new color combo for me. I hope my partner approves. I think it will become a pillow...

4) As I was cleaning my sewing room the other day, I found this stack of FQs of La Dee Da fabric that I never really liked... It's just not my colors. So I decided it will become a quilt for Siblings Together and got to cutting half-hexies with my previously unused Hex N More ruler. I think this quilt will be very cool and modern and perfect for a girl or teen.

OK - time to be enter the social world of blogging - so linking up to:
