If there are any readers new to this blog, let me explain that I am very fortunate to be an original member of Brit Bee, the best quilting bee in Britian. We started about 4 years ago, a bunch of strangers on Flickr, and fast became firm friends. We got to know each other so quickly, and were all shocked when one day our Terri told us she had been diagnosed with Cancer.
Our bee, our quilts, our meetings, our chats and sadly Terri's ultimately losing battle with Cancer are all parts of how we have become more than just a bee. This weekend past was the memorial service for our dear Terri. I'm sorry to say I couldnt make it in person, but my thoughts were there all day. She was an amazing person whom I am honoured to have know. But she didnt want sadness. She didnt want dwelling.
We have been working on a group medallion for the last 2 years, and we chose this day for our grand reveal. A fitting tribute I think.
We each did our own centre, chose our own colour scheme guide, but the overall design was done by Hadley. The #britbeeforever medallion. 13 Stars. Yes, they are awesome, aren't they?! What will we come up with next?
In other news. well there isnt really any. No sewing done yet, spending all my spare time sleeping. Moo got a sandpit today. Not entirely a huge hit yet, but she is definitely interested for 5 minutes. Teeth brushing continues to be an absolute nightmare. They way she acts one might think I was extracting each one to brush it... However sleeping is still going well, touch wood. Tippietoes running is the favourite game of the day, and she is finally starting to make singing, pleasant, sweet noises for a change! And she likes a wee bop in the high chair. This morning it was Bob Marley's Jammin!
Eugh. Bed time already. Night night!
