Illness has been lingering on here. My sneezing viral infection has lead into a sore throat, enlarged glands and loss of voice viral infection!! It feels as if I haven't felt 'normal' for over a week now. My sons have stepped up to the mark on the home front, but then I cannot shout at them, let alone speak in more than a whisper.
I have been feeling miserable, but yesterday I got my sewing machine set up in the dining room and over the course of the day, made a couple of blocks. I am Queen Bee in Bee a Brit Stingy in April and I felt that I should be posting what I want my bees to be making, as April is less than a week away.
I have actually found it really difficult to decide on a block. Our bee is a scrappy one, so this needs to be taken into account when choosing a block.
We have already made feathers for Lucy

Emily asked for + and x blocks. Check out how awesome her finished quilt is.

Over the last week, I have trawled through Flickr looking for a block that would work well in a scrappy bee sort of way. I came across a block called Scrappy Sprouts and knew that it was 'the' block for me. The leaves will be made in different rainbow colours by my lovely bees.
I don't quite know how this quilt will turn out, but as part of the plan I thought that I might put some flower heads on some of the stalks. I don't think I have the final plan sorted yet but there is still some time to tweak my ideas.
