Earth hour and other quandaries

As March is drawing to a close, I thought I should pop in.  I've been working on a sweet quilt kit from Amitie lately.  It is called Ginas Nina.  I think it was the start of my attachment to the kei honeycomb fabric.  I bought it last year at Stitches & Craft.  It supposedly is for my 3 yo...
altho who knows?!  Anyway here are some of the little nine patches in progress.

Did you know it was Earth Hour tonight?  Obviously I've been on another planet coz I was in the dark about it.......luckily R read about it in the paper hence the candle!  Where was the publicity this year? Not a media event this year.

Another birthday, another bag!

The denim from the Fabric Store worked well for this.  (It was going to be for a quilt but not soft enough really) I do love the way the prints highlight against the denim.  I think I might have to make another of these to keep!

Beehive February block

Beehive February block, originally uploaded by beeware70.
Into March now so I am glad the Beehive block for February is finished & posted back to Rebecca of missi mu. She is making a quilt for her mother-in-law based on a lovely Material Obsession II design Playground Days. I love her choice of fabrics- florals, stripes and spots in blues and yellows witha smattering of orange.
This block was not too hard to make although I did unpick one row 3 times. This may have been because it was 11 o'clock at night.....
