So it's not July, but . . .

Here are my July Bee Blocks.  Yup, they are a week late. Le sigh, July was just one crazy, crazy month.  But I am pretty sure that my wonderful bee mates will forgive my tardiness ;)

Kris from the Beejeebers group asked for a Modern House block in grey's, lime, orange, and yellow.  I love designing so I was super excited for something that we could throw some creative flair into.  But I am no architect, and had no idea what qualifies for a "modern house".   So I googled it and quickly fell in love with this picture.  So cool!!


And I set off to design something based on this photo.  Here's what I came up with.  I think that little roof is my favorite part.  Those are 1" finished HST's.  So fun!!  I think it turned out pretty modern and I hope Kris likes it :)



And for the Bees Knees group, Trish asked us to make a Swoon block.  This is the fourth swoon block I have made and sent off.  It is such a fun block to put together.  Who knows, maybe some day I will actually make one for me :)


So now, I need to go work on my August blocks.  No more last of the month for me.  (hopefully :)
Pin It!
