Busy as a Bee

Isn't this little hexie bee block cute? You can find the free pattern right here.

It was a busy, busy week. I didn't get much sewing accomplished, but managed to wear myself out with other projects. I'm starting to research bathroom renovation ideas. Won't that be fun? No, it will not. I'd love to take a trip to Paris and have it done when I returned. Just make it pretty and easy to clean. Neutral colors. See you when I get back!

Quickie selvage coaster for a friend.

Baked apple pie donuts for Inspector Gadget. I need to figure out a recipe that only makes six donuts, since that's what my pan holds. I had to put the extra batter into mini muffin pans.

I made this Mexican seven layer dip for a luncheon. I winged a version for Sew Day, but it wasn't as good or pretty as this one was. Maybe it does matter in what order you layer the ingredients. Finding ripe avocados was an adventure. And after visiting three different produce markets, I forgot to get the celery for another dish I was making. Back out again.

I would love seeing the installation of the 1,600 flags made for the To Boston with Love project. They've installed the flags at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and they look so colorful and cheery. Amy and Berene worked miracles to make it happen. And quilters from around the world send encouraging and beautiful flags. You can see some photos here. The quilting community is always so generous.

Somehow I got sucked into another TV series while desperately waiting for Breaking Bad and Walking Dead to return. This new show is on PBS and titled Call the Midwife. It's set in 1950s London. You can catch both seasons on the site, which is handy.

Work is done for the day and I'm off to celebrate the three-day weekend. There is serious barbecuing in my future. Have fun!


  1. Well now I'm hungry! I want donuts AND that dip!! I will have to check out that series too! :) Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

  2. You are the 4th person to tell me I missed out on Call the Midwife. We saw it coming on PBS but it was at a weird time so we skipped it...obviously my mistake. We'll have to catch it when our sucky PBS shows it all again because they don't want to broadcast something new.


I would love to hear from you. Comments make my day!
