I do hope you are enjoying making this wall hanging. Some of the "girls" at the Bee yesterday had brought their blocks to show me, they were great and such a diverse colour range. I wish I had taken photos. Oops! I forgot to put the stitchery drawing in..
It was more like a Knitting Bee yesterday than a Sewing Bee as several of us were knitting up the little hats for Age Concern Suffolk.We have now knitted 93, a bit down on last year when we knitted over 200, but we do have till the end of July so who knows.

I told you about the on line quilting bee in my last post. Well, I finished June's Block, and now have to post it off. Goodness me that was well out of my comfort zone. The block had to be 20" and that is a big block for me..
I have loads more to write about, but I want to go play with my new sewing machine !! At the moment, it is scaring the wits out of me. Watch this space.
Keep safe and keep stitching... Doti
