this blog is essentially an online diary of my little creative projects - if you can't fix it, throw some glitter over it and add a lacy edge and everything will be alright.

bee themed patchwork quilt

i've always liked the idea of patch working but never seem to get past the smaller projects, but no more! i've started, and am determined to finish, a hexagon-tiled bee-themed blanket. fabric with bees on is actually quite rare so i foresee much painting and embroidering in the near future : ) here's what i have so far:

i'm being a bit lazy, though i am sewing it all byhand, i haven't bothered with tacking them to paper. instead i've been drawing around my template on the reverse of the fabric, matching up the lines and sewing them straight out. these 5 took me an episode of miss marple to get through....yes, i have become an old lady, i don't mind!
