Welcome to the Let's Bee Social!
Okay so I no longer have a handle on my week or my life. But this is the new me, and this is how I roll now. Here is your first ever Let's Bee Social on a Monday.
There is one thing I would like to address right away today.....
Yes, there has also been a lot of SEWING!!!!!
On February 6th Molli Sparkles made this post on Instagram. He had this beautiful unfinished piece he had rediscovered and wondered what to do with it.
Cushion or almost baby #quilt? At 24” square, and over five years old, this is one of my oldest #WIPs. (If not THE oldest!) I just can’t decide how to finish it! What to do, what to do, what to do. Oh, and did I mention I have the same exact #WIP in a #blackandwhite version? Reversible #cushion may be the only answer! This is using #vandcoombre and #ovalelements #fabrics in so, so many colours! Aye!
And I was like, "Girlfriend!!! Yaassss! Let's do a quilty exchange!"
That was it. Molli and I had decided to each make something to send and exchanged addresses by email.
For those of you who have never had the pleasure, this is Molli Sparkles a.k.a. the uber talented Joshua Helms.
Molli and I have been quilting blogging buddies since a way long time. Although we have never met, I consider us to be friends.
Now what do you make as a return gift? Hmmmmm.
Molli Sparkles also has a flair for quilt pattern design. So why not make something using one of his own patterns?!!!!
It was decided and I asked if I could purchase a copy of his "Don't Be A Dick" pattern. Turns out that when Craftsy shut down so many independent craft and quilting designers' shops, Molli's shop was one of them. So now you can visit his NEW PayHip Pattern Shop HERE!
I posted to Instagram and Facebook sharing my intentions and showing a rainbow fabric pull. But not everyone is impressed. Seems there are some who are easily offended by stick figure shapes if the body parts are genitalia.
So if you are against seeing drawings of, or fabric recreations of sexual organs please do not scroll down any further.
If you must unfollow,
then please quietly unfollow.
If you feel a need to make a negative remark about my decision to post about this fabric creation representing penises, DON'T BOTHER.
This is my blog.
Which I started to:
Post about my experiences,
Share what I am making,
Connect and make friends with quilters from all over the world.
Molli is my friend.
I made that decision.
Um Helloooo! Like who wouldn’t pair this playful pattern with @robertkaufman Kona Lipstick 💄 #idontkissandtell #sewfreshquiltsarefresherthanuthink 🔥 ala @molli_sparkles ✨ #crazylittlethingcalledlove #looselipssinkships #redlipstick #modernquilt #quilttherainbow #secretsewing #resistanceisfutile #glitteratti #seweveryday #dontbeadickquilt

I'm not naturally drawn to purple but it is growing on me.
So if you are still here...... Lol!
I also had to deal with another issue this weekend.
