Here we go!


At the retreat in June I had the pleasure of getting to know Di a lot better. We chatted over lunch, with Susan, and Di mentioned that she would love to start a bee.  Count me in I said, and Susan gave some Bee advice.
Thanks to Di's hard work, I am now in her Bee - and I am soooo excited. Look at the company I am in: 
  1. Tanya - Second Chance Tan -
  2. Rachel Addison - Mamma Fairy Sews -
  3. Karen  - Lisnaweary Quilts -
  4. Fiona - Sew Fi -
  5. Collette - Poppie and Poochie -
  6. Renee - Nellie's Niceties -
  7. Lynz - Domestic Light and Magic -
  8. Jan - Isisjem -
  9. Catherine - Sew Wonderful Life -
  10. Sarah - Sew Me -
  11. Judith - Just Jude Designs -
  12. Di - Willowbeck Designs - 

 And as a 60's baby the bee name is perfectly apt and also I think button that sarah has designed is awesome.

This is my first ever bee and I am excited and nervous, I don't want to let anyone down. I have opted to be Miss November: this is my birthday month ( I share that with Renee) so I figured how wonderful it would be to have blocks made by these wonderful ladies during that month.

So, our first month is August: gulp!!


  1. I didn't even think to pick my birthday month doh! We're going to have so much fun. Yes, it's a little nerve racking but I think we're such a lovely bunch it will all work out!

  2. There are a few bees forming as a result of the FQR ( I have joined two and I wasn't even there! ) Good luck Catherine - you'll have loads of fun!

  3. You will be fine and you will love it as it is such a wonderful group.

  4. Really looking forward to starting stitching! All the best people are born in November ;)

  5. Hope you have a lot of fun during the bee! =D

  6. It is going to be fun. Just think of the quilts we will make over the year. Di x

  7. Gulping right along with you Catherine! This is my first Bee of this type too. Guess we'll just learn together.

  8. Woohoo! It's going to be lots of fun! Nothing to worry about! It will be a privilege to sew alongside you C! Jxo

  9. You're going to have so much fun!! Enjoy!

  10. I'm sure you're going to have lots of fun and nothing to worry about!
