The Early bird

I was up just before 5.30 am this morning - and on a Saturday!  Jenny left to go to Cornwall for a weeks holiday, so I had to be up to say goodbye.  The plus side was the huge amount of additional sewing time that this gave me, which meant I could get this all sewn together
 
This is my Bee a Brit Stingy bee quilt - my month was May and I chose Pineapple Blossom as my block


 This is such a great block for using up scraps, and my Bee friends chose amazing fabrics and sent me two blocks each

 It was so easy to put together: now I just need to get it basted and start quilting

 And look what I received in the post this morning, my fabulous name tag from Catrin (this is here flick feed)

Its perfect, I love it.  And this is where my one went to : It has been received so its safe to share!


Only 3 weeks to go!
