Goosey, goosey ransom!

This month it's our Mama Bee's turn to be Queen for a month.  So that means it is the fabulous Di's choice of block we are all sweating over making perfect!

Ruby beauty!

Di chose this wild geese pattern for her blocks and then sent us each a fq of Ruby to work with.  Did you hear that?  RUBY!  Like only my all time favourite fabric! And the silly girl actually expects to get it back - mwaaaahaaaahaaaa!!

Yep, this Ruby is bringing out my darker side and I have tried to pretend that no Ruby arrived in the post, but she didn't fall for that.  Now, in a last ditch effort I have threatened to kidnap her wild Ruby geese (hence the ransom note above).

Wild Geese Block for Di - 16.5" x 16.5"

HOWEVER, I'm not really dark by nature and I've seen those other wild geese blocks popping up on our hipBees flickr page and I'm thinking this quite large Ruby geese block (16.5" square) would be much happier joining the gaggle of others in Di's sofa quilt.  Ho hum!  Nice Sarah wins out and evil Sarah is being locked back up in her box, for another week or two anyway.

So, here it is Di.  Some geese for your gaggle with all my love and the little piece of my heart that was lost to Ruby.  (Violins play soft, wistful notes.)

PS - No need to send chocolate, I'm trying to be good and I promise to post the geese soon (after a wee bit more stroking).


  1. Hilarious post! I always knew you had a dark side (very well hidden away!). Jxo

  2. I couldn't stop laughing. My family think I have lost it (they don't mean the geese). You are a very bad woman. ;) Di x

  3. To start with I wondered whether you kept geese...I'm a bit slow at the moment. I'm looking forward to doing this block. Although I have one January bee block to make before I can do it!

  4. Oh you have made me laugh, that is so funny!! Finished my block today, lovely to do

  5. ha ha - release the dark side - it's lots of fun!!!!! x

  6. Lovely sharp geese! It was a lovely block to make though, wasn't it?

    Chocolate is clearly needed! I expect someone will get some to you sometime!

  7. You are so funny, and the block is gorgeous.

  8. ...and I know just how you feel when it comes to Ruby. Cuddle it to your hearts content.

  9. I love the ransom note!
    Ruby remains one of my all time favourite lines!!

  10. Lol! Great block and ransom note!
