I've got mail!


Bee-utiful mail!

From India for my international book shelf I have Hindu gods Krishna and Ganesh gorgeously executed by two lovely ladies Tina and Veena!

The detail is amazing.  Krishna is known in India as the butter thief and this block shows him butterhanded ...  Ganesh is the elephant headed god stitched impeccably!



I love them both and the sumptuous brocade fabrics that came with them but I haven't taken a photo of yet!

From Sweden, I got the top three charmer blocks made by Annika and the others from Australia made by Helen, my Scrappy? Sew bee it! mates.   I love these Charmer blocks.  



 It seems that anything goes in this quilt, soft colours, bright colours ...and with these six taking me up to 35 - my fingers are twitching as I want to fill in that missing block to square this off



I might just have to do that this evening!

  7. I think I need to send you a block tomorrow so that you have a block from EVERY country - I'm serious! Love your Indian bee blocks - and especially the butter thief - a boy after my own heart.
