Brace yourselves! I sewed! On a school night!

Do these blocks look familiar?  If you've been following Kevin's QOV Block drive, they certainly should :)  I contacted him a few days ago saying that I simply was not going to be able to get them into a top before sending them his way by June 1, but tonight.... I DID!  Holy moly!  I'm more surprised than anyone at this move ;)
So now, they have been sewn into a quilt top, pressed, bagged and packaged up already to hit the mail tomorrow.  His block drive has been an amazing success!  He's amazing, right???

And then there's the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2014.  April's color was purple, and would you believe that I truly didn't have much of ANYTHING in purple!?!  Back during the first weekend of May, I was at a Math convention in the southern part of the state, so I hit up a JoAnn's fabrics on the way home to stock up on some purple FQs.  Once summer hits, you can bet that I'll get caught up on April's purple and May's green! :)

Paul received another few packages in the mail a couple of days ago.  Clearly, more beehive fixings -- I'm not exactly sure how the hives all work, but he attempted to educate me in some terminology and process.
He created more "supers" tonight in order to build up his current 4 hives to a next level.  I am to understand that the bees store the honey in higher parts of the hive, while they "brew" in the lower levels.   I don't get the whole process yet, but... I'm glad he does (and that he has a mentor walking him through this new hobby.)
