Flying bees

I titled this post flying bees although there really isn't a dramatic story to go along with it. I moved here to Utah 3 years ago and am part of a very small group of quilters associated with our nearby Air Force base. My husband retired last year so we're staying put....at least for awhile.

While I'm staying put, members of our group move on when their husbands get new assignments. We all look for ways to say goodbye and this is my small way to say goodbye, good luck, and keep quilting! I make a small wall-hanging from a Debbie Mumm pattern, although I altered it slightly. Utah is known as the Beehive State so I thought it was appropriate. When I lived in Washington state I made something with an apple in it (perhaps I'll post a photo of that someday).

I finished this one a couple of days ago and it's long overdue...hopefully will be in the mail before the end of the week (really sorry Janine!!)

She'll love it... even if overdue!

I love mine as well, and it is so special to me that you made it for me. I have it hanging in my bedroom over my sewing machine. It is my inspiration :)

Gee...I don't know what to say to that! Thanks so much!
