August Bee Block

Hi habibis! I hope you all had a great weekend.  I spent Friday night and Saturday with my family. We had gorgeous weather and a lot of fun! Sunday I had a quiet day with Z.  I got my August bee block in the mail this weekend, on its way to Carla of Granny Maud’s Girl in Australia.  (I love her work, don’t you?)

Carla is planning a new quilt for her bedroom and she wanted lovely washed out cool, beachy colors for it – creams, greys, blues, greens, purples, maybe a little yellow. Nothing saturated.  She asked for a 16-patch with randomly-placed pinwheels. I followed her instructions closely and I was extra careful about my seam allowance after last month’s too-small blocks.

Here’s my finished block!

Cute, right?  I also sent along an extra piece of the yellow in the bottom left corner, with little dots of green, blue, and purple in it, in case Carla liked it, since it fit her color scheme.

Carla asked us if we ever decided to get a tattoo, what would it be and where would we get it?  This one stumped me.  I’ve always thought I wouldn’t get a tattoo because I can’t think of anything that I’d want put on my body permanently – tastes change over time and how do I know I would still want it in twenty, thirty, forty years?  I have to be honest; I can’t think of anything.  Sorry, Carla!  I’ve got five ear piercings, two in each lobe and one at the top of my ear, and I guess that’s as adventurous as I get.
