The Bees have a new home.

I first told you about the Bee's hanging around our place on June 3rd. It was a bee-utiful day.

From bloggler Sara I got this comment:
Bee!!!! Did you design that yourself?! Awesome!!!

I didn't reply to her. On June 17th, I posted
June rains makes flowers and more. I told the everyone in blogger land the bees were still hanging around.

Once again from blogger Sara I get this comment:
You're killin' me with the bees already!! ;)

July 1st,
Christmas in July, I wrote that the bee's had left the hive.

Blogger Sara wrote to me: And you are an ornery woman, I think. :) In the best possible way, of course. XO

I was pretty sure Sara knew something was coming her way.

I don't remember how Sara and I met in blogger land. It's been close to 2 years. We've exchange wonderful emails, her honey for the blacksmith hoof picks, lots of pictures and good times between us.

When I heard her and beekeeper husband Mark were expecting a baby, I knew I wanted to make them a quilt. One day when I was strolling through a quilt shop I found the most awesome bee fabrics. Including some Debbie Mumm, fabric with all kinds of bee things on it. I used that for my fussy cut fabric. I paper pieced bees, and as I do on most all of my quilts, I paper pieced the year.

The quilt was mailed Thursday. I could hardly wait until it arrived.

The day has come and you can go to Sara's blog and read all about it.
Congratualations Mark and Sara on your upcoming arrival of baby boy!

I went to Sara's to get a good look at the quilt. It is so cute. I love the paper pieced bee's and 2010.
What a fun thing to do for a dear new friend.

It is so pretty! I saw the bee fabric at the quilt shop on 42 (at the Lake) and thought about you!
