Great Friends and Bee Blocks

First I want to take a minute and thank everyone that took the time to leave such nice comments about Charmalade both here and on the Moda Bake Shop.  
Thank you from the bottom of my heart! 

 You guys are the BEST!!

Now just a special thank you to my friends,Cori (Crazy Quilt Girl) and Konda (Moose on the Porch).  Thank you both for taking the time to blog about my quilt and the fact that I was a chef. 
 You didn't have to post about it but you did and I really appreciate you both.
  It is so wonderful to have such supportive friends!  

 I went to the Sewing expo today with my friend Waynette. 
 We stopped at the Bernina dealership and she bought a new machine. 
 I really wanted to, and hubby even said that I could (he really did, said I deserved it and everything) but the machine I wanted was pretty expensive and
 I would need a new table too, also expensive, so I decided to wait.
 It was a hard decision but I think the right one.

My bee mates have been patient and so when I got home I went to work on my September blocks (yeah, yeah, I'm a little behind).

Here is Colleen's block, she wanted zig zags.

 This one is for Jodie, she wanted string blocks.

Now I need to work on my October blocks.

I have an improv quilt to finish and I am hoping to work on that quilt tomorrow. 
 I am taking the day off work to get some stuff done that I couldn't over the weekend. 
 I am going to get to lunch with Cori tomorrow too, always fun!

My DD1 is closing on her house tomorrow!!! 
 It will be her first house and it has almost 9 acres of land!! 
 Lots of room for her peacocks. 

I did have some help while working on my bee blocks tonight.

At such an expo the temptation is always strong. Most of the time it IS better to wait and think it over. Like the blocks!

So, you went Sunday? Were you disappointed too? We met up with Mary-Kay and her friend on Saturday. Next year we're going to skip this and go to the quilt show in Grand Rapids. Love your blocks!!!
