Blocks for me in the Ringo Pie bee

This is one of the songs I will be listening while
piecing together blocks everyone has made
for my month in the Ringo Pie Bee. (Remember the theme
was anything to do with delivering letters and packages?)
In this bee, we are allowed to use our own stashes and
come up with whatever blocks that fit monthly themes.

My block ~ Ringo Pie Bee

It is quite challenging because we design original block patterns
monthly (not required, but most of us like to do), and we all
feel a quit bit of pressure since everyone in this bee is super
talented. But I consider myself a super lucky girl to be in this
bee. I love how accomplished I feel every time I finish my
block, how inspired I am by everyone's awesome blocks, and how
kind, encouraging, and friendly everyone is in this bee.

And now that I have seen these blocks folks have made
for me, which are all super amazing,
I am loving this bee even more!!

Ok, let me share with you those completed blocks
by everyone so far. The Beatle's "Please, Mister Postman"
(above) would be a great song to listen to
while you ogle these blocks!

These blocks are crazily amazing, right?!
My quilt is going to seriously ROCK!!
In fact, maybe I will enter this quilt at
Tokyo Quilt Festival if I do a great job at
making them into a quilt. hehe, a girl can dream, right?

Thank you for letting me share my excitement
over these blocks with you, and thank you so much for
all of you who made a block for me or are going to make me one.
I love them all and I do know I will love those that are coming.

Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend :)

P.S. my fabulous friend Kerry is having
a 'My Secret Obsession' party where we all
share our secret obsessions on our blogs!
Go ahead and join the fun! My thinking cap
