I have a few things to report on today. I received my latest bee blocks, and since we have firmly established that my brain went to live in a different body a while ago, my last blocks were not the last but one, nor were the blocks I credited to Jenny from Jenny. Complete mess up on my part. Those blocks were from Jo. These blocks are from Jenny - and very nice they are too - and, yes, Sarah, I am afraid you are the last to post but I don't care. Quite frankly it is going to be a little while before I get all my swap stuff in order and have the time to concentrate on my bee quilt. So don't fret. I'm not going anywhere and they can arrive whenever they want.
Helen has been in the kitchen again today. More cakes and a small contretemps with me over just who is supposed to clean up the resulting mess. (I won!!) She practiced her piping skills today and I am well impressed with the evenness of her little 'buttons'.
|Please ignore the colour of the actual cake.|
Helen is experimenting with food dyes in the batter.
Wish she didn't think blue and green were great colours for cake!

I went into the kitchen and this is exactly how I found Bethany.
Helen was cheerfully working away at her side.
I have to say that I am leaning towards number one which is the plainest in many ways, but I think it would look brilliant in some great blues like this.
Number two would be very bright if I did stars in all different colours. I pulled these fabrics as possibilities.
Number three would be completely scrappy, a hodge podge from my stash. Even though I designed it I am secretly hoping my partner doesn't pick it as her favourite because I think it would be a right nightmare to make. Now all I need is for my secret partner to express an opinion or preference. She might no like any of them. Or she might like one but prefer a different colour scheme. We shall see.
I hope that you have been having as relaxing a weekend as I have. Sure does beat being in a tent!
