Let's Bee Social #11

Well, I think this may be either the 2nd or 3rd time I am linking up to the Let's Bee Social linky party. So much for new year's ideas eh?

Been busy this week...worked the weekend which allowed me to work on my Plain Talk Sock pattern...

got to the point of starting the heel and learned that I had dropped a stitch somewhere about 4 inches (of my needed 7") down...altogether now "rip-it, rip-it". Love both the pattern and the yarn and I'll be starting it up again very soon. Working Thursday night so for sure I will have some time there to begin anew.

Working on my 12" mini quilt for Easter swap with Gone Stitchin' so I'm very sorry, but I have no sneaky peaky pictures to show yet.

Going through my stash to get at least 100 (no duplicates) 2" squares in preparation for the upcoming sign-ups for the PSQ swap with The Curious Quilter (see sidebar for link). Last October I was a "newbie" and boy did I get swamped with love and squares. Looking forward to paying it forward here!

I'm also working on my projects for the upcoming hops: Flags on a Stick, and Superpower, oh and I even have an awesome idea for picnics (even though signups have not yet begun).

I've also been waiting for signups for my Craft it Forward. I have 4 spaces left...go to this post to learn more and to signup. (Thank you Jodi of Mountain Gurl Quilts for having answered my original call!)

Well, that is it for today's to Bee Social now...


  1. Hi there! Hello from Jan at Sew and Sow Farm. I am entering her contest via the Ruffles blog hop and she invited us to visit one of her followers, so here I am. As soon as I saw the spinning wheel and the knitting, I new I needed to be one of your followers, too.

  2. Your knitting is coming along nicely. Sorry to hear you had to rip it and reknit a bit! Can't wait to see your other projects in the works. Madame Samm's hops are so much fun, aren't they?!!

  3. 100 2" squares whoa :-) You got a lot of going on, good luck with all your projects.

  4. The socks are lovely. There's nothing better than having a pair on the needles, but frogging back is no fun at all!

  5. Shari, you are one busy girl! I am almost finished my mini for the swap too...
    The 2inch squares have me intrigued, I might go for a look at what it's all about, thanks for the link

  6. I need to take a clue from you and do some planning ahead! I did order some fabric for the picnic one. :) blessings, marlene
