A couple of bee members visited one month in the summer when we worked on a difficult block, played on the long-arm, and generally had fun.

However, in November I was deep into my own world of confusion trying to figure out how to get Building Blocks to cooperate with my plan. (That's the quilt that became two, and both were seeking independence.)
Dealing with two additional blocks? No way! I sort of ignored everything in my life except EOC testing at work and Building Blocks at home. And ah, the stress-filled exhaustion of teaching.
Christmas holidays finally arrived bringing with it three bee blocks, which were all giving me the evil eye. I tried to look away from the guilt and shame of being so late, but eventually I had to face the horrible truth: I am a bad worker bee.
That meant I could face the snowflake block was applique, it made sense to go there. I created my pattern--which I thoroughly enjoyed--and when the block was finished, I was thinking what pretty pillows it would make.

Until we return home fat and sassy! A FB note. A gentle reminder: don't forget the last step. Last step?!!! I'd left off a step? Oh darn! I sure did. And it looks so good, too.
I can only say I must have been very hungry for Mexican salsa! Today I opened the envelope, and added the triangle pieces to increase the size to 17" so now all three envelopes can go out with the mail.
And this worker bee can hold her head up (almost level) again.
