Bee participation and completed blocks

My weekend, well Saturday, was spent catching up and hitting deadlines for the two online bees I am participating in.

First off, I finally finished the first of two blocks for my March Scrap-bee-licious bee.

My stash bee blocks for April are completed. I did an angel block this month as well.

I am at an interesting point with my participation in bees. I joined both the bees I am in, for two different reasons.

  • The Scrap-bee-licious bee is for friendship, as it is made of some of the US-based bloggers that participated in Plum and June’s New Blogger Let’s get acquainted blog hop. I do like the camaraderie of this bee!! Everyone is fantastic.
  • The other one, Stash bee, I joined to get new skills and see what blocks are added each month.

However, I was so frustrated and a little disgruntled this weekend – I did not want to spend my Saturday making these blocks. I have so many other projects, I wanted to spend time on MY projects. I know I should not have left them to the last minute – but that’s me too :-). Do you all feel like that? How do you balance the commitments of a bee with your other stuff?

Anyway, our guild had a bee today, the kind which is more of a free sew….I decided to reward myself and sew something I wanted to sew. No deadlines. No expectations. I was much happier!!

I am linking up with Alyce over @ Blossom Heart Quilts for Sew Cute Tuesday and Lorna over at Sew Fresh Quilts for Let’s bee social (see buttons on the right).
