Things Are A Happening , A Shaking and A Moving

So who else has found that when you dip your toes into the "Big Old Pool Of Life" stuff starts happening???

2014 New Quilt Blogger Blog Hop...put both feet in , joined it ...looooved it and from that I am now in two separate Bees with some awesome Peeps!....read about me here if you're not already sick to death of hearing me bang on about it!

First up Possum Magic.Here's my block

It was made using Katy from I'm A Ginger Monkey's  Spring Carnival Templates and with this Herringbone as the background I've made it into a 18 1/2" square block

I have a stupid obsession with this now, OOP Alexander Henry print, that I bought a ridiculously long time ago and would seriously consider swapping a child for if anyone has any......anyone...anyone?


 OK moving on.

Possum Magic is made up of some Uber cool girls from Australia and NZ that I met on Bloghop, and to make it even more exciting it's a Round Robin Quilt....I know SHUTUP!!

The Possums are below...go and check out some of their starting blocks they are gorgeous.
This one from Jane at Where Jane Creates is coming my way first!!

From NZ we have Moi, Wendy and Alice and from Australia there is Jane,Jo, ( Jo's profile pic alone is worth the visit freakin hilarious !!) Carla,Serena and Sharon  

I'll try and get all savvy with it and create a dedicated page....but don't pass out while holding your breathe.

Now, do any of you know Angie from Gnome Angel? ....if you don't get on over there and check her out....also very, very funny.

She is running a mini paper pieced House swap through Swapbot...I know?! I'd never heard of it either?

Quilt House Block Swap - INTERNATIONAL

 The deadline for International sign up is June 27, I've added the link to Angie's post that tells you how to make a basic block and if you scroll to the bottom there is a link to join....go on it will be fun!

aaaaaannnndddd just because I'm as Mad As A Meat Axe I also put my hand up for another International Bee organised through the Blog Hop and thank goodness Carla from Granny Maud's Girl has offered to coordinate otherwise I was trying to figure out how I could do it and not have my children taken by the State..........yes that is a bad thing, yes that is a bad thing LOL

I think there are a couple more spots if you want to join but get a wriggle on as the first tutorial is August 1st BY ME!!....yes I'm looking at you Chelsea

So if you've lasted this far you'll see One Wee Bird got alot out of One Wee Hop, so jump in when things are offered and figure the details out later!!

Linking up with these lovely ladies...
