Deadline's rock

Yep - totally deadlines rock!  Homework rocks!  Having some accountability rocks!

I'm not really sure if I would accomplish as much as I do without deadlines.  So, yeah I've had a few monster colds the last few weeks.  I'm the good employee that goes HOME to get better.  The moment I do feel better I go back to work and BAM!  A bad employee is there to hit my weakened immune system with a cold - that just has to run it's course.  Grrrrrr {Insert expletives here}

My many bee-mates have been so forgiving for my lack of completed blocks for the ENTIRE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER {yeah I was yelling sorry}.  I seriously can't believe that I haven't had the energy or time to get to my sewing machine.  And each block needs attention so I just can't walk in and whip it out.  I could if I'm 100% but not when I'm running on 40%.

So while my bee-mates have been awesome there are some deadlines that you can't mess with.  One of those is for the 4x5 group.  The deadlines here are sticky!  You must get your blocks done or you are kicked out.  Well that's enough motivation for me to get my weakened state into the sewing room.  {do I sound poor-baby enough?}

Well the first hurdle is to figure out a block that will be worthy and awesome.  Oh and kinda fits the fav blocks of the ladies that I'm sewing with.  Weeks of pondering I finally came up with my own block design.

You wouldn't believe I was good at math watching me trying to calculate this, at least it all worked out in the end.  

Here are the 5 blocks that I made for the Sew Modern Bee - 2011 Quarter 3 - Beehive 3
