Bee, myself and I

I made a gazillion bee blocks for others in 2015, so from January 2016 I am going to do some selfish sewing and make bee blocks for myself.

I promise that I will complete at least three quilt blocks for me every month, and I will set aside time each month to work on them. I will be both queen bee and worker bee.

I even made myself a button to remind me to make some selfish sewing time for me bee, myself and I.

If you would like to grab the button and join in, please do so. If you are a blogger, leave a comment below, and I will add you to the list of people taking part. I have chosen to make three blocks each month, but you can set yourself any number to suit your sewing time and other commitments. I think selfish sewing should be to please oneself and not too structured!

Other bloggers taking part include:

  1. Yesssss I am in. I applied the button but haven’t figured out how to size it down yet. Please add me to the list, Carla. I have decided to call myself a Mason Bee, since they are the bees who build solitary nests.

    • Jane, I like the mason bee idea!
      To resize, add the following code after jpg” and before alt: width=”150″ height=”150″
      You can then adjust the numbers to anything up to about 320, but keep both numbers the same so the button stays square.

  2. Good for you! I already make plenty of blocks just because I want to so I won’t sign up but know I’m cheering you on from the sidelines. 🙂 [I’m here from Tall Tales from Chiconia by the way.]

  3. I made myself a BOM last year, it is now like my fave quilt! I am making myself a monthly Medallion this year…so I am way on board! It is always more fun in a group!

  4. I have decided that rather than quilt blocks, my selfish sewing is going to be the needlepoint (or other stitchery) I enjoy so much but don’t indulge in as often as I’d like. Adding your button to my blog now… 🙂

  5. May I still join? I have just started a project for ME, and this will keep me from dropping it completely to work on a gift for someone else! What a great idea!

I appreciate your comments and will reply by email.
