May Stash Bee Blocks

 This month our queen bee asked for these fun Circles Squared Blocks.  They are pieced together like a 9-patch and I used it them as a leaders-and enders while working on some of my Farm Girl blocks (more on that another time ...)

Jan asked us how we get back into creative mode when in a sewing funk.  I guess I have three answers for that.  One, I clean my sewing area.  I can't function with too much clutter, so clearing things off and taking 5 to 15 minutes to put everything away works wonders.  Two, I sew something small.  Bee blocks, small pouches, baskets and sometimes bags work well here.  It's sort of like instant gratification.  Third, I always have multiple projects going so I can switch off when I get bored.  Perhaps that's why some projects really take a long time, but I like being able to pick up something different when I get stuck.

  1. I clean too. It is such a small space, that I have to keep it tidy.


Thank you for stopping by! I love to hear from you. Come back soon!
