October Stitch Tease Bee

I'm down to one bee for October, which made for an easy month. Next month a new bee kicks in for me and I will tell you about it as it gets started. For now, it is Jennifer's month in more ways than one.  I wanted to get these blocks made and in the mail before we left for vacation. Jennifer asked for Remixed Flying Geese blocks, with a very open color scheme. These blocks are 6.5" x 12.5" unfinished, so she asked for 4 blocks. I was not happy with the top left block, so I decided to make an extra block.

Jennifer is also getting married next week, so I wanted to make her a little something extra. I decided on two voile pillowcases. A simple, but hopefully special gift. Jennifer runs the Knotted Thread online shop and she is always so generous with her sponsorships and giveaways, I thought it would be fun to send her and her fiancé a little surprise.
I got a surprise myself when the print accidentally matched on one of the pillowcase seams.

I hope these have arrived and I am not spoiling the surprise. I'm looking forward to seeing a few photos on Instagram of the wedding festivities. Congratulations Jennifer and Steve.

I hope they don't have to sleep on the floor! ;-)) Seriously, the pillowcases are lovely!

Lovely gift! I have a cavalcade of geese in my future, I've been putting it off, but I'm going to have to bite the bullet soon!

Thank you, thank you! They arrived safe and sound and we've already been using them! Such a sweet gift. xo
