Welcome to my Wednesday Wait Loss, where we skip the wait and get those long lost works in progress done!
I'm catching up on my Bee Inspired bee blocks, finishing December and January. For December, Emily @ The Darling Dogwood requested a book block. Emily is a librarian, so this block is so perfect for her.
The format was rather free-flowing (13" tall by 13 to 16-1/2" wide), which gave us a lot of options. Emily wanted us to use a theme for our fabric choices, and to add "something you might find on a shelf" to our block. I chose the Wizard of Oz because I had a lot of those fabrics and because they are a great series of books.
I added Dorothy's ruby slippers to the stack of books as my "shelf item." I hope Emily likes her block! I'll be mailing it off today. You can find Emily's tutorial for the block here.
On Monday I had the pleasure of kicking off a month-long blog hop for Island Batik! Each day in the Four Seasons Blog Hop, a new Island Batik collection is featured. My collection is called Blue Moon and it's wonderful!
There are fabulous giveaways at each Ambassador's blog, and an Island Batik giveaway so don't miss one day of this wonderful hop! You'll find the details of the daily postings and how to enter my giveaway to win a charm pack of Blue Moon here.
Have fun, and don't forget to leave me an email address if you want to enter!
