NuBee: August

The first month of the NuBee is only days away. We received our hive assignments the other day, and it appears we will have our hive-mate's info either tonight or tomorrow. Even though I've been needing to sew (coughUFOcough) I haven't. Instead, I pulled fabric for the Bee ;) And then I spent the rest of the day contemplating what block I should choose.

Since this bee is month-to-month, I decided on something simple. I think I'll be doing a churn-dash block. I've been debating if I should do the same block for all my hives. I don't think I will. I think it will keep my interest (and therefore keep me sewing) to do at least 2 different blocks. So I might still do the churn dash block for one more hive in the 3x6.

I think I'm getting drawn into that: "I don't want to make a boring block" syndrome that seems to happen in bees. A churn dash block seems so...ordinary, but I really like the way it looks, especially after I made the tone-on-tone one for my do.Good strip earlier this month. I hope my hive-mates won't be disappointed (I'm sure they won't be, but you all know what I mean.).
