Bee Blocks, Bags and Quilt Tops

Sorry I have been MIA for some time. I decided that I was spending way too much time on the internet, what with blogging, reading blogs, being active on flickr and hours on pinterest and other sites I was spending about 4 hours on the computer for every hour crafting. Not good. Also hours on the computer = ridiculous amounts of fabric purchased and starting multiple projects to add to my already too long list of things to do. So I decided I needed to focus more on craft and less on the computer. (I hope that doesn't sound too worthy I fully intend to go back to my old ways as soon as I have some stuff completed).

So this is what I have been up to.

I used the gorgeous Perfectly Perched fabric that I was lucky enough to win from The Village Haberdashery to make this quilt top using the Super-zig quilt pattern from Monica Solario-Snow.

I used my jelly roll of delicious Marmalade to make this Over and Under Quilt top from the book Scrap Basket Sensations.
Finished my Art Student Tote (the perfect bag for Autumn)


I made more Bee blocks

And a BOM block
Used some fabric scraps to make this Gum Drop Pillow (thanks Ruth for the pattern).
and finally..........
Finished the swoon!!! (more about that later)

Feeling much better about my crafting / computer balance now. Right off to spend a couple of hours on the computer now.
