August Bee Blocks

After doing some much needed house work around here yesterday (which of course has nothing to do with the fact that my parents are visiting this weekend!), I still had time to work on my bee blocks for this month.
 As soon as Kat mentioned that she wanted "word" blocks,  I began thinking about which one to  make, and ended up chosing "Create". Whether it be related to craft and sewing, or just creating a wonderful life, create just kept coming back to me. I followed the instructions in Tanya Riccuci's "Word Play Quilts" book and found the letters quite fun and easy to make.
I laid them out on the background fabric to see how it would all turn out, and hoped that it would be able to be read clearly so I just need to add the Zen Chic "Comma" background fabric to the letters pieces now!
And I also made the wonky cross blocks for the Simply Solids Fallow group bee using this tutorial.. These  blocks range in size from 6.5 to 10 .5 inches and will be in the mail early this week.
