today has been a lazy day, lying on the sofa with the laptop, drinking a potion made from these
with Miss K for company because she is home from school ill too..........
a whole day of online browsing as I don't have the energy for anything else, leaving me time to look, ponder, and plan, and clearly that honey has got to because the plan is -
is anyone up for joining in with a virtual quilting bee?
Oh Franson just wrote a post about them, and I've been browsing flickr groups endlessly wondering about joining.
but then I decided, why join? why not start?
so I'll open it up here, and if there's enough interest great, and if not then I'll post about it on flickr to find some extra people.
so how does it work? well I'm no expert (having never even been in one...) but usually there are 12 people per bee, each person has a month where they decide what kind of block they want, they send out fabric to the other participants who receive the fabric, make the block and post it back to you, so you can make up your quilt. so for 11 months you make one block for someone else, and one month you make one for yourself, and so does everyone else, and at the end of the year there are 12 quilts all made in part by 12 different people.
what does anyone think? are you in?
