Which is a brand new Bee that starts in January and I've been lucky enough to be invited to join. Hey, that's two bee's in one year I've been invited to. Get me being little Miss Popularity. Actually I think in the case of this bee they just heard that last time I opened my wallet a rare moth fell out. I say fell rather than flew because it had been in there so long, without seeing the light of day, it died.
The concept behind the Bee was dreamt up by Sheila and Nicky, who are running this Bee with the help of Helen and Archie. (I'm not sure Archie is doing much other than being in charge of biscuits - or making sure we eat enough biscuits while sewing. Whatever, Archie is doing it will involve biscuits, I'm sure.) This Bee is about using our stashes to make for the other members rather than going out and spending loads of money on fat quarter bundles and hoping they don't get lost in the post when we post out to each Bee Member. I'm actually all for a bit of frugality. Because whilst I was only joking about the whole dead moth thing, I do love to save a penny or a pound where I can. I think it will be really fun to rummage in my stash in order to make the chosen block each month. Can't wait until January now - my birthday and the Bee starting.
I think we're all chomping at the bit to get started so we are having a get to know you inter bee swap and will be making pin cushions for the person after us on the month list. Now what to make...
Have a great weekend!
Ps. Note how a few months ago I was: Nooooo I can't join a Bee and now I'm in two...Yeah I know some of you Told me so!
