If you’ve been following my blog lately, you might not be surprised to see my design-wall-piano is still going with the Bee theme.
Today I finished the mug block, above for Sana in the Star of Africa Bee. She is making a wall hanging with the theme ‘Home is where the heart is’. I made a cup because a cup of tea always makes me feel at home. If you’re English, you’ll understand – if not you probably think our tea is undrinkable and we shall have to agree to disagree! The mug is on the grass because we sell the eggs from our ducks and chicken on the verge outside our house and we actually leave a mug there for people to pay whatever they choose (the mug and eggs are in an old rabbit hutch so they don’t get rained on but the hutch isn’t on the block). We always receive a very fair price and one of the reasons I love my home here is that I know in many places the eggs would just be stolen :)
Just off the design wall is this oak tree block for Brinda, who wanted a tree from our country – now parcelled up and waiting to go to India…
And finally, I thought I’d lay out the bee blocks I’ve received so far to get an idea of what my quilt will like but that will need a post of it’s own when the others arrive!
What is on your design wall this weekend?
