Summer bee blocks

Jan is our March queen bee in Bee a brit stingy and she wanted some of these blocks:
 her remit was 'summer', which I am hoping that I have acheived: there are deck chairs, beach huts, waves..

 ...flip flops, sunglasses, sunflowers, citrus etc. 

I managed to grab myself a bargain at the market in town yesterday - 5 spools for £1.50.  I gave them a try and they worked a treat so I headed back today to pick up another 10 - should help me with my ST quilting!

 I finished this off over the weekend too: I had been sewing this whilst watching the 6 nations, which is why it has come together quickly (for me!) 

I was gutted when England threw everything away in the last match, but Wales played an amazing game.  Now, what am I going to do next weekend .....

  1. Beautiful block! I don't follow the rugby much, but my DH supports Scotland and my Sister-in-law is fanatically Welsh, so I have it non-stop at this time of year!!
