Circle of Friends

     On Saturday Dwight and I travelled to Toronto purely for pleasure this time. ( It was my third trip in this week.)  We joined several of our friends for a pot luck in Gillian and Gordon's lovely shaded garden.  We have been meeting pretty much once a month with this group of friends for over thirty years and one thing we do at each get together is sing.  One song we sang on the weekend was the Beatles classic "I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends".

     So friends I share with you the lovely bounty that has arrived in my mail box this last couple of weeks.

  
     These are my "Circle of Friends" blocks that I have received from my fellow hive 8 mates from Stash Bee.  They look like someone spilled a bag of jujubes on the back patio, don't they.  It's so much fun having these packages arrive in the mail box, and I haven't even received them all yet...so the fun continues.  Some of the packages come with extra goodies as well.  This is something I wasn't expecting as this is my first time participating in an online bee.

     Here are some closeups of some of the focus fabrics:






     









     
     This is going to be such a fun quilt!  If any of my RCQG followers are reading this post...we just might have some fun of our own with this block next Spring.  

     I'll be sharing this post on Wednesday at my friend Lorna's link up Let's Bee Social.
This is week 5 of May is for Makers and I shared my pattern buying love this week with Lorna by buying her patterns Rural Squirrel and Cat Treats which you can see  here  in her  Etsy Shop

  2. Lisa, I think they hit it out of the park for you. These are great blocks. I really love the little square with the coy and the one with the two little rabbits. Can't wait to see how your quilt continues to grow toward it's finish.

  14. What fun these are. I didn't join the stash bees this year because I have so little time lately to sew anything. But I think I might try next year if there are any openings. Sounds like y'all have a fun tradition going on your monthly get-together.
