I've joined a new bee this year! I'm feeling very blessed + fortunate to be a part of it, as it's full of some completely awesome + amazing sewists from around the world.
Kristi from Schnitzel & Boo brought us all together. Our little Flickr group is here. We'll add a button to the side-bar very soon.
I'm first-up in the bee, and after much thought and leafing through quilty-books over cups of tea and glasses of wine, I thought that I'd most love each bee-lady to make me a house - any pattern or design, in their favourite colours, with a sweet something peeking out of the door or window, and all with low volume fabrics for the background.
These are the houses I sewed up as examples:
I think I'll turn these little houses into a mini for one of the girls.
Already, two gorgeous bee-ladies have sewn their houses for me! Click here to take a look at Synnove's super sweet wonky, tall house (the little panda!), and here to see Kristy's sweet little house and her gorgeous blog post about it! - she's included our dog Teddy, my brother's dog Harold, a wee bee, and our house number - completely awesome, I love all the details. I can't even believe it, I love both houses so much and I can't wait to see what everyone else sews. Thank you so much Synnove and Kristy! I'm thinking I'll be making a Wee Bee Village from all the houses - and I'll sew a little church and a shop to add to it.
Happy Monday everyone. xoxo cat
