Bee Hive 2018 – Testing my block

I’m really excited to be part of @blossomheartquilts The Bee Hive 2018. The basic concept is that you sign up with Alyce, get allocated to a swarm, and then for the next year swap blocks based on tutorials from The Bee Hive. I’ve long been part of Quilty swaps and block swaps on Instagram, and… Read More Bee Hive 2018 – Testing my block

Darrel’s December Daily – Workspace Revisited

My December Daily adventure got a boost yesterday when I switched up my workspace. I’m lucky enough to have a craft corner in my office, but it lacked natural light which is a must for scrapbooking.

Quilting challenge : One Monthly Goal : Snails

Quilting Challenge Reset   Ok so, being totally honest, July was a big fail as far as my One Monthly Goal challenge was concerned. The pinwheels remain in their project bag, and never even saw the light of day this month! In fact, instead of making any progress on any of my WIPs I joined… Read More Quilting challenge : One Monthly Goal : Snails

Quilting challenge : One Monthly Goal : Pinwheels

In an effort to get me motivated to finish them, I’m joining in the third quarter of #fal2017. You can read my full list here. However,… Read More Quilting challenge : One Monthly Goal : Pinwheels
