Let’s Bee Social #40

Posted on: October 1st, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

Spring and summer are long gone and fall is in full swing now.  Although the temperatures have been quite cool during the past few weeks… I am still hanging onto the memories of warm weather by stitching up some sweet watermelon.

Seems like I can’t shake my fixation on the equilateral triangles.  I am doing a remake of the Sweet Watermelon table decor I made back in April for my guest post at Sew Can She.

Come November, I will be offering classes at my LQS {E&E’s Cloth & Creations} in Newton, Ontario, just outside of Kitchener.  I am in the process of choosing three or four projects that have been popular items.  The Fox & Friends {redo} was also remade for this purpose.

My Sweet Watermelon – Table Decor – Set of Three pattern has been a good seller.  And each one of these quilted items were sold from my Etsy shop back in April.

This will be project #2 submitted for classes.  If you are in the Kitchener/Waterloo or surrounding area and would be interested in taking a quilting class with me, I would love to hear from you!

As a side note…  Today’s post is my 301st post to be published!  Yippee!!!

NOW…. What’s new with you?
