Don’t you love receiving exciting mail??!! I do – I LOVE it!!
November was my month for Sew & Bee-Happy and my blocks are starting to arrive – Woo Hooo!!! I asked everyone to make wonky eye-spy house blocks for a playmat that I’m planning for my girls (with parks and roads and stuff). Here was my example that I gave them to give them some ideas of what I was going for.
Here is a peak of what I’ve been sent so far.
Emma did the day block first, but “didn’t think it had enough contrast” in her words… so made the second night block.But she very kindly sent both blocks along. I love them both and think it will be great to encorporate both of them as a good lesson on night and day and the world for my girls. I’m thinking that I might put the day block on the front and the night block on the back – so I can talk about it being night on one side of the world at a time etc… We’ll see…
Very cool! I love the princesses and my girls will too!! and hand embroidery – LOVE!!
Very cute house! My Princess Hannah will think it’s pretty cool to have the same name as the maker too I bet!
An apartment building to represent hers. Very cool & plenty to eye-spy.
Thanks heaps guys!! A few more to arrive and then I get the challenge of putting them all together. Fun!!
Another exciting package that arrived in the mail last week was one containing these:
I had absolutely no stash books. So when I received a very generous birthday gift last month, I had no problem choosing a few great books to start my collection. There are SO many projects within those covers that I’m just itching to make… so watch this space! 🙂
