Happy New Year

I'm a little late wishing you all a Happy New Year. It's already well into January and I can happily see a stretch in the evenings.  It won't be long until Spring, whoop, whoop!!

This is a quickie to let you see what happened when we last met.

Ros took lots of 'happy worker' photographs, in my absence...so here they are!

I've just one question... 


Where are you Ros!!!






Camera shy??!!

We didn't get a chance to meet before Christmas but who doesn't like a pressie in the New Year!!!


We put borders on this 'orphan block' quilt.


Before Christmas I mentioned that Katy Cameron, the_littlest_thistle, ran a 'giveaway' on Instagram and this is one of her generous donations to Bee Blessed. Thanks once again.


Big thanks, also, to Francis Paul from the Netherlands who very kindly claimed the donated fabric, made us the quilt below and brought it to the UK during the Christmas holidays for her daughter to forward on to us.  The quilt is beautiful and we very much appreciate all your hard work. 



These blocks were also donated by the_littlest_thistle


The blocks have been sewn together, a border added, and the lovely Hilary has quilted it on her long arm.  I haven't seen it as yet but I've been informed that it's pretty amazing.  I'll show it to you asap.

It just remains for me to show you the quilts which were gifted during the last month.




Didn't the Wonky Cross quilt turn out extremely well.  Thanks for your blocks!!!  It was gifted, along with our thoughts and prayers, to a very special man. We wish him well.


So that's all for now.  I'll post the new block next week.  Thank you to everyone who has supported us in any way.  Hopefully we can renew our acquaintance in 2017.

Happy Sewing
