These will be headed to a charity...maybe Project Linus.

I finished my bee blocks for New Bee on the Block.
For January, Diane chose the Japanese + and X quilt.
She sent lots of scrappy goodness.

Here are all three, headed to the mail tomorrow:
New Bee on the Block, Jan block
New Bee on the block, Jan block
Bee block #1 for Jan, New Bee on the Block

I can see how these would be addictive.
I started playing with the snowbally part of the block (the non cross) with a bunch of leftovers.

I've got 3 out of the 16 rows done on the Dead Simple Cross quilt top.

I also broke out the Janome (I think it's a 11554) that The Pirate got me. Wow. I knew my Brother was kind of crappy, but this one is so much quieter...and the bobbin doesn't run out as fast...and I can actually use a large spool of thread on the machine, rather than having to rely on a makeshift method of keeping it on.

I'm still dreaming of a Bernina. I think the fund is more than halfway there...What do y'all sew on? Any dream machines that you currently own or want?
