It is delightful, isn't it?! I'm trying very hard to encourage the younger (!) girls I interact with to get involved. I so want to pass this skill on! My daughter (she's 26!) knows how but just finds herself too busy and only seems interested in doing little projects in spurts of creativity. I will continue to enjoy my "new" favorite thing. Thank you all for your encouraging posts!Sorry to keep this going- nothing worse than the conversation that won't go away! The thing is, it was our church ladies who taught us sewing/quilting, how funny. Little older-back in the ( ouch ) 60's and early 70's. They had the knock-down, drag-out bees, without calling them that. Had no idea at the time we were being taught by such tradition- maybe why this project seems so delightful ?
I don't know. We ' ladies ' ( meaning us chicks ) tend to lose common threads ( 'scuse the pun ), tying all of us together. Seems pretty cool, a gigantic bee, getting shared, especially towards our vets. Can't sew on a machine, as in at all- blessed thing chases your fingers like an avaricious dragon but I can quilt. Plan on looking into this. We have an astonishing amount of browsers here, guessing your thread just did the same for people we'll never hear from.
