    Urgodschild2, many years ago I started paper piecing and got so frustrated and just couldn't seem to figure it out and was wasting fabric galore! I put all my patterns away and said I'd never do it again! LOL! A few years later, I decided to give it a go and something just clicked and it's now one of my favorite methods of stitching blocks together...relax and give it a rest and come back to it at another time and see if something similar might happen for you? Thanks a bunch for giving it a great try!

    Just a couple of days for people to sign up...I think we've got our crowd, but you never know who might just jump in at the last...

    Sorry, but I am not going to be able to get blocks done for the swap. Too much vacation time this winter. This retirement is just keeping tooooo busy.

    Thanks for the reminder Ronda, I'll get mine finished up this weekend and in the mail next week. Looks like I'll be sending in 6 sets to swap, but no "twist", I'm running out of quality quilting time!!

    Here are my beehives and my bee twists. I'll mail Monday. I didn't trim them to exact 8.5 and 3.5 because I thought whoever got them might want a taller hive or more sky. Hope that's ok. Better to big than too small?

    Finally something to post! For me, spring is cherry blossoms. I couldn't resist doing these for the twist.

    I hope no one sent their blocks with signature required? If that were important, I would have put it in my first post on mailing instructions. There is a mystery package at the post office waiting for me to be able to pick it up now cause I wasn't home when a package arrived for a signature and they don't re-deliver without much time and delay. I have no access to a car today so it will remain a mystery at least until tomorrow.

    I didn't. Then again I am waiting with bated breath to see if my package makes it to you!! Mailed yesterday via Priority Mail, if the PO doesn't get snippy with me, you should see it show up tomorrow or Friday at the latest!

    Ronda you should get mine by Friday too. Probably tomorrow even.

    I also wanted to share my first wall hanging or mini quilt? I chose to make beehives and bees for this swap because I thought it would be easier to make the extra I wanted for this project. It's for a friend whose husband orders beehive/bees for their property. It was fun to make as I tried out some free motion ideas I learned at a class recently.

    New skills acquired in the last year = paper piecing and free motion quilting. Much practice needed but having fun and that's all I care about!

    SheriR that is so cute! I can't believe those are "new" skills.
