A New Era

I can't believe it has been two and a half years since Ros and I took the 'Bee Blessed reins' from Judith and Sarah - pictured below on their last day in June 2015 - and once again I'm writing a blog entitled 'A New Era'.

Saturday 6th January was my last day at Bee Blessed (I'm Lorraine and I've been running it with Ros since June 2015) and this will be the last blog I write. Life has become very busy and necessitates me handing my one rein to Ros. But, in essence, little has changed and you'll still be getting your monthly updates and Blocks of the Month.

I'll show you a few photographs of what we got up to on Saturday 6th.

The ladies had a ball as they beavered away. Welcome Hilary, who has faithfully made and posted blocks to us for some time now.  It was lovely to meet you.  Hopefully we didn't work you too hard and you'll be back to see us again. Whoops...sorry no photo of me...I'll remain a mystery.😎

Hilary got stuck into stitching down some binding on this baby quilt.

Before Christmas we set this block and on Saturday we had the opportunity to complete the top.

 This is growing...

...this needs binding...

...and this binding needs stitched down.

As usual your blocks didn't disappoint.  Many thanks to all who made and posted them to us. This is the last opportunity I'll get to thank you for all your support.  Your kindness has touched both me and everyone involved with Bee Blessed, not forgetting all the lovely people who receive the quilts. Keep up the good work! And to all the lovely ladies who faithfully turn up each month, a big thank you.  Bee Blessed couldn't exist without you and it has been my absolute pleasure getting to know you and spending time in your presence each month. 😘😘 

And finally, many thanks to all who showed their appreciation for my (much enjoyed) efforts within Bee Blessed during the last two and a half years and to those who extended their best wishes for my future.  You know who you are...😃
