On their merry way...

I wrote an exam yesterday morning. I can't tell you the relief it brings me when I finish one of those buggers! It means I have a week off from studying and can sew and cook and relax guilt-free. Bliss!
So what am I doing with all my time? We went to the art gallery yesterday afternoon, then out to dinner. With a full belly, I came home and had a deep 2.5hr nap (heaven). In the sewing department, my test block for the bee is finished, packages for bee members are at the post office and February block for Michelle is complete.
The block above is my test block. It's huge! I asked for 20"x20" blocks which I feel a little bit bad about, but it was really quick going together. If the blocks were any smaller, it wouldn't really make a lot of sense since larger blocks of solids will be included. This was a lot of fun to make. No pattern, no rules - just squares and rectangles. I just cut and sewed, cut more and sewed more trying not to worry about values and weights - a little of a challenge for me!
The block above is Michelle's bee block. She is making this pattern from Lecien. I think it's going to be so great with all of those saturated colors she chose.

Have a great week!

I love the block you made, and even more I love the fact you made something so beautiful by just doing in spontaneously and going with the flow.
