Hello, welcome to my blog. I'm still not sure what I will be featuring in this blog. I know it will be about quilting, but I might throw in the latest book I'm reading on my Kindle. So come along a follow me through my world of quilting and other stuff.

A Day At The Bee

It is always a good day the hang out with the girls of Wee Bee Quilters.  We talk about what we are working on, we have show-n-tell and upcoming projects, and as always there is food.  Here are some pictures of our Show-n-Tell and service quilts.


Above is Yetudie of Sistah Stitch A lot (who has not blogged in awhile), showing her quilt journal that some of the members will be attempting to do.  The quilt journal is trying to do quilt/crafting techniques that you have never tried before and writing about the process.  I think this will make a great hop.

Below, is a jacket made by Shirley Royal, one of our Alumni, who is up from Durham, NC.  She made this jacket while on a quilting cruse last December, with Rachel Clark.  Nice bead work on the sleeve and inside.  It is always great to see her when she is in town.  She is now a member of the African American Quilt Circle of Durham (I think I am right), but she will always be a Wee Bee Quilter.


Below are other show-n-tell.  Hey see my turtles.  Some of these quilt will be given to St Ann’s, one of charity project.


I thought once I got home I would do a little sewing, put found Tom in is cleaning and rearranging mode.  And let me tell you, when you can get a man to clean, you just let him do his thing, because I sure am not going to do it.  I don’t have time, I need to quilt.  I mess up, he cleans up.  I think he is even washing clothes.  What a man, he makes a good wife.

Thank you for stopping by.

    Count your lucky stars for having a husband like yours.Mine never does anything.So you are very blessed with someone like that.I would just sit back and let him do his thing.
