Things bee happening out there - Building Blocks Tuesday

Wow, Tuesday just sneaked up on me.  Sadly, I have no blocks to share this Tuesday as I have been working on other things, but I would love to see yours!  And I thought I would share a few things I came across this last week that bee happening:

There are several sign ups going on in Blogland if you are looking for something to do in the new year:

Simply Solids (A Modern Bee) at Sew At Home Mummy.  This is a bee where only solids will be used, and you will be paired into a hive in your geographical area.  Erin is especially looking for more members in Europe and Australia/New Zealand.  I'm all signed up and looking forward to it.

Mrs. Pickles Garden has 4 new bees starting up, but only 2 have spaces left.  Check them out  HERE.  I've participated in a few things with Mrs. Pickles. Let me tell you, Mrs. Pickles is on top of things, I know these bees will be fun and well run.  So if you are Canadian, or like Modern blocks, see if you can get a spot!  I landed one in the We Bee Learning group and can't wait.

Rachel at Stitched in Color will be offering both her Handstitched Online Class and her Curves Online Class starting on January 1st.  I plan on signing up for the Curves Class, but I can tell hands down the Handstitched  Class is worth it.  I believe if you sign up the first week, you get $10 off, and do opt for the Premium Class - the Ebook you get with all the lessons is well worth the extra dough!  You can read more about the class descriptions here.

I'm still working on quilting the Medallion Quilt from the Handstitched Class, but it has really come a long way since this picture.  This is just one of the projects we worked on, and I learned so many skills in the class.  Like those reverse applique wall art items? - never would have tried them if it hadn't been for this class!  Hand embroidering things for my Star of Africa blocks - again, wouldn't have attempted them.

And no, Rachel hasn't asked me to plug her class.  When I find a good deal on a great learning experience, I just like to share!

OK, enough of me babbling.  So what have you been working on?  I want to see those lovely blocks of yours!

Link up your fabulous blocks.  You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off!  And, don't forget, you have all week to add them if you like.

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
