I have a few projects on the go at the moment, but I thought that today I should catch up on my Bee blocks. I have been procrastinating about this one because it is an improvisational number and I was a bit worried about running out of fabric. However after picking up some more supplies last weekend, I poured a Margarita this afternoon and set to work. What I like about this block is the complete freedom to do whatever you like, with the only rule being to make the block a minimum size of 8.5 inches. So my contribution was to add a kennel with a Dalmatian inside and put a fanlight above the door. The end result is not particularly wonky except for me forgetting to make the 'lawn' extend between the two structures. I hope it will do!

Update on the Sherbet quilt -  Mackenzie Rose has arrived and her quilt is finished.  After some umming and ahhhing, I decided to use purple to bind it and I am really happy with the result.  This quilt is well travelled - the binding was finished while we were on our jaunt to Canberra to see the Toulouse-Lautrec exhibition.  I met Mackenzie yesterday; she is so cute and apparently the text book baby.  So far.  As it is so warm at the moment, I don't think the quilt will get much use for a few months but I'll be interested to know how practical the large white negative spaces are.....
