Let’s Bee Social #237

Posted on: August 8th, 2018 by Lorna McMahon

Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social!

You may be familiar with the phrase, “A day late and a dollar short”. Well around here things in my life have been not so scheduled, to put it mildly. And I noticed that for the past two weeks the Let’s Bee Social post has been a day early. That means I should also be two dollars ahead!!! Yay!!!

Today I want to thank you all for hanging in with me as I have transitioned from my old life to my new and improved one. It’s taken time for me to feel right. And to feel creative again. I think creativity is born out of happiness. And then being creative causes a feeling of happiness. So it comes full circle. And I think I am finally back in the loop!

I have been amazed by and greatly appreciate both your emotional support through messages and emails and financial support through pattern and quilt purchases. Without you guys…. I never would have made it. For reals my quilty peeps. You make me wanna cry.

Today I am sharing this sweet little Giraffes in a Row quilt top made by Tina. She has an Etsy shop called 5LittleToes and makes personalized embroidered items for sale. Isn’t this simply adorable?

    Glad to hear that life is getting easier. We tend to be so hard on ourselves. So glad you can feel the support from your followers because we all wish you all the best. You have such talent! I already have this giraffe pattern…I love it! I hope to make it for a friend who is expecting an \”unexpected\” boy in December. I don't know how anyone can look at your patterns and not smile! Thanks for all the inspiration and I wish you all the best!
