Yesterday, I worked on bee blocks (which I shared yesterday) but I didn't get a chance to show off the one for my Creative Quilt Blocks Bee. This bee works in a loop. We each make a starter block, with what we are kind of looking for our bee friends to make. Then we mail it off to our person, and then they make a block, and send it to the next person on the list. By the time we get our original block back, there will be many more in the package. So fun!
Corrine (in France) mailed me her starter block, and it came over the weekend. She requested variations on a 9 patch block in cool tone colors with a bird/nature type theme using white. This was a little challenging for me in looking through my fabrics but I finally found a few fat quarters that I thought would work.

Oh, the other exciting thing this weekend... we started our new member class at church. We joined Mt. Horeb United Methodist Church over the summer. Yup. I'm now a Methodist. :) That's okay. I really like the church. Technically, it's probably more of a mega church but we have been so pleased with it. They offer to many programs, small groups, etc. and we love the preaching. They really talk straight from God's word. Anyways, the new member class runs once or twice a year, so we were signed up for this round. It's sort of a crash course because we're meeting for three weeks (a couple hours at a time) plus a dinner. I'm really excited about learning more about how to plug into our church.
We even had homework! Yay! I know, I know... I'm a bit of a nerd. Hubby already pointed that one out. And it's probably even more nerdy to admit that my homework is already done. We had to do a spiritual gifts survey. I took one in confirmation in high school, and again during college when I worked at the chaplain's office. It's really funny that my spiritual gifts are the exact same top four. The only thing that has really changed is the first one.
My new results:
2. exhortation (encouragement) and teaching
It used to be that administration was my first one. Not anymore. Ya know, it's kind of funny that these have always been my results. I wouldn't change any of my journey in life but God clearly was telling me, years ago, that teaching was my path. But, right now, I'm just going to be staying at home! Didn't get the teaching job that I interviewed for but I think that'll be okay. While I'm disappointed, I know that there is a reason that I didn't get the job... and that me being at home is good for our little girl. :)
Anyways, I hope yall are having a great week!! Take care yall!
