February Bee-autiful Bee blocks (& my newest obsession)

Here are my finished blocks for the Bee-autiful Bee. The very talented Elizabeth over at Oh! Fransson had the month of February and chose a fun Valentine-wonky theme. She sent over a sweet little package of solids and prints in pink and red cut into strips with instructions for each bee-er. You can read all about it on her blog.

Elizabeth is such a quilting force to be reckoned with, that little old newbie me was definitely intimidated to make these. But they were fun and simple to whip up and I hope you like them Elizabeth (and sorry for all the crazy seams on the back). I am so happy and honored to be part of this group of quilting masters!

As if I didn't have enough projects to occupy myself with, I have gone and fallen head over heels for Noro yarn. I am a sucker for variegated yarn in the first place. This stuff is so gorgeous and thrilling just to see which color combination is next. I'm easy I know. I of course just finished my striped scarf in time for spring so I know I won't be wearing that for long. And socks have been on my "must figure out" list for a long time. Sooo, I am off to hopefully finish my first sock tonight and then onto this very cool shoulder bag pattern, the Lotorp Bag. Wish me luck, I really have no idea what I'm doing.
