Well, we made it to the weekend!!!
blooming in my yard
Each day can be challenging,
readjusting to the new normal,
but I keep trying to focus on the positive.
What have have you been up to?
Working on old projects
or maybe even trying something new?
I've been getting quite the work out,
but the results will be well worth the effort!!
I recently saw a sweet paper doll
that Kathy Schmitz had designed and
posted free on her website.
She was encouraging people to share
what they're working on.
I printed "Honey Bee" and put her together.
She wants to show you what I've been working on
during my "sheltering in place".
For the past couple of weeks I've been stitching
this pattern by Marie-Claude Picon
from her book French Farmhouse.
With the top done,
I moved my machine to the kitchen table.
I need the extra space
to spread things out when I machine quilt.
It's a slow process,
but Honey Bee is hopeful that
I'll have it done by next week.
Recently, I found tucked away
on a shelf, a kit for a small wool coin purse
I had purchased in Vancouver, BC in 2014.
After a few struggles,
quite a few changes,
and lots of fuming,
a smiling Honey Bee can show you a
finished coin purse.
My only thoughts are there are
those who can design and
there are those who can write directions!
A continuing project
has been a BOM from
Homestead Hearth for the "The Lewis Coverlet"
designed by Susan Smith.
I'm on the last border so
the end is in sight.
It's a good night time
TV time project.
Honey Bee is optimistically thinking
that it will be done soon.
Next week will be filled with
new opportunities and
maybe, a few challenges.
Focus on the positive
and keep smiling.
How about making a Honey Bee of your own
and sharing what's happening
in your little corner.
Until Next Time-
