Bees and planning

We were blessed with an absolutely gorgeous day last Tuesday. This was 9 a.m. !!!!
I'm trying not to get too excited because this time of year it just doesn't last.

Case in point, Wednesday started out almost that warm and progressively got colder. By noon, we were back down into the lower 40s. Overnight was forecast around 32. That and it rained almost all day, we were looking at a messy, frozen commute for the next morning.

So you all know that my days and weeks have been crazy busy this year with the addition of helping Mom get through some of her health issues. And of course, I LOVE my sewing and stitching. I also have a really hard time saying "no" to all these gorgeous, fun, free quilt-alongs and blocks of the month.

Keeping track of appointments for four people now. Newton and I have the fewest and Honey Do pretty much takes care of his own. I've made it my responsibility to get Mom to and from her's because my brother and sister both work full time.

With the help of my planners, I not only stay on top of appointments, but chores, meal plans, bills, and posts.

All of the blocks of the month I subscribed to this year are published at the beginning of the month. Unfortunately, it's taking me the whole month to get them made.

This is this month's color challenge bear. He's too cute.

I also signed up for a couple of BOM kits that are delivered by pigeon. That's right, United Postal Service.

Block two arrived over the weekend. I finished Block one just in time.

Aren't these just the cutest???
I did get the eyes put on, just not a new photo.

There's a shop in Florida I found on facebook  last year. This is the second project I've ordered from them. The first one is started but not finished and for another blog.

Here's your link to Stitches of Love. Brittany and Julie are wonderful to work with and they have some of the cutest designs you'll see anywhere.

The bees are meant to be a wall hanging, but I'm going to figure out a way to make them into a "Queen Bee" size quilt.  

I prepped more blocks for Friday and weekend sewing, but took some time make these yummy coffee cake muffins. Since our gorgeous Tuesday turned into a damp and chilly Wednesday, I wanted something yummy to go with my tea.

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a day filled with kindness.

Verse of the Day

. . . neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
