Nearing the end………..

Of our “Winter Texan” time, I enjoyed another awesome “Killer Bees” weekly meeting. Beginning with a heartfelt ‘Thank You’ to Jan (right), IMG_5490 who (with her many behind-the-scenes helpers) tirelessly facilitates and coordinates the group’s agendas, moving to the necessary announcements/updates to a seemingly endless number of shared finishes! On to the photo recap of the meeting and workshop that followed……………..IMG_5491

A couple of pillowcase dresses (2 of many) donated to a small Mexican community just across the border.

More finishes (above) from a recent workshop

.   IMG_5493 A “One Block Wonder” that’s as pretty on the back (below) as on the front!


IMG_5501 IMG_5497IMG_5499 IMG_5504IMG_5506A recent workshop finish (“Fractured”) that took a different direction!

 IMG_5507 IMG_5509 A tote that allows for some serious “shop-hopping”!!!!

A finish that will soon enhance a summer lake home.







And a very special gift for a special granddaughter…………

 IMG_5518The silhouettes were enlarged/taken from one of the prints contained in the quilt and appliqued on!!!!! Beautiful work and amazing idea!!!

IMG_5519A very original row quilt designed with/taking its cues from the fabric piece just below the large butterfly appliques. We were assured that (as of now) there will be no pattern available in the future!!!!!

 IMG_5521IMG_5522 This finish is a large queen and quilted, by the maker, on her DSM (Domestic Sewing Machine)!!!!! Yes!!! You read that correctly!!!!

Now………can anyone guess what this little, antique cutie is??????

 IMG_5513 It is hand operated and meant to be secured by screws to a surface.

IMG_5514 It’s a “pinking machine”!!!! So fascinating!!!

On to the “3-D Block” workshop, inspired by a book by Karen Combs.

Though the weekly attendance is dwindling, the enthusiasm certainly isn’t!!!!!

One more meeting left for me……..sigh…….. Til next time, sending hugs……………….
