I have done beehives and swaps but last year I signed up for too many.  You remember the Bonnie and Camille beehives- times two.  Plus Lizzy House,  C+S, AMH, a few more B&C swaps  and a dozen other choices last year!  Thanks heavens I didn’t join every single one.  Trust me there was a lot of temptation, but I tried to be realistic about my life and abilities.  So I joined just enough to cause me … STRESS.  :)

Now we are at the end of May and my friend Denise and I were talking how we want to do something… Ay yai yai!  (How do you spell crazy sounds?!)

I have been making Dwell blocks and almost have enough for a quilt.  But… it would be so much more fun with friends!!!  Want to join Denise and I and make some Dwell blocks?

Update:  I just learned there was a correction to one of the Dwell houses.  Here is the correction:

Page 64 – Block assembly instructions for House C
Step 1 says to cut 1 piece 3 1/2″ x 9 1/2″ for the header; it should be 3″ x 9 1/2″.
