Zippity Bees!

Well I'm thrilled to say I've received my long awaited orange zips!  

Zipit didn't disappoint and after these were posted from the States on 22nd November I received them this morning!  Just in time for me to get the rest of the makeup bags finished before they are whisked off down to my sister's on Tuesday.

This afternoon, the sofas were pushed back & the dog banished for another gathering of Bee Blessed.  The man quilt was wrestled to the kitchen floor and basted to within an inch of its life!

See how it's sucking in Marion's hand! Naughty quilt!
And the production line of 9 ladies churned out log cabin blocks.

We now have over 30 made and donated log cabin blocks (& I know more are still to come)!  Thanks again wonderful bloggy & Bee folks!  These are going to be wonderfully warm and snuggly quilts for elderly folks this winter.

And before I clock off for the evening, just enough time to tell you about the lovely Laura's giveaway, celebrating 200 followers.  Check out the gorgeous charm packs she is giving away and leave a comment (or a joke!) to be in with a chance of winning.

Have a great rest of the weekend!

P.s. So sorry (again) about the rubbish quality pics.  I'm hoping to switch to a new phone soon with a better camera (of course it's absolutely nothing to do with the incompetent user!).


  1. Oh pants I didn't make you any granny squares :( And looking at your blocks I have nothing that would go - so sorry - I am a bad friend this month.

    I hope Marion is OK!
    Loving the zips xxx

  2. Yeah, glad you are pleased with Zipit's service. And the quilt is looking great. I'll try and find time for some blocks next week.

  3. Yay for Zipit! Enjoy finishing your pouches.

    The recalcitrant quilt looks fab, glad you were able to beat it into submission ;o)

  4. Looks like a fun day! I'd like to see what you do with all the orange zippers. The Man Quilt looks awesome, and you received wonderful log cabin blocks-- and they all seem to be in the same range/family of colors. Your photos look just fine to me. Hope you had a nice gathering with your Bee Blessed helpers :0)

  5. Love the man quilt! And boy your zippits arrived quickly!
    Sorry I've not done any granny logs yet either :-(

  6. It looks like everyone had a great day. I am still planning to send you some log cabins if you can use them, the ones everyone made are lovely. Tomorrow is bee block day.

  7. Love the man quilt and the orange zips!

  8. Yeah for orange zips! The man quilt is looking good :)
