One of the million things I’ve been trying to fit around Isabel’s naps, hospital, dentist appointments, vaccinations and heaven knows what else I’m forgetting lately is the quilting bee. Again.

The winning layout from a contest we held last year has finally been coded up:

the quilting bee

…and so we’re having a “House Swarming Party” to celebrate (get it.. house swarming, house warming? never mind..) as well as the famed easter egg hunt of years gone by. Also known as the activity in which Jem has to arrange the locations for around 300 pixelled eggs, on over a hundred members’ sites, so that everyone can then go and find them. Yes, not the easiest one to organise, but definitely one of the best to participate in.

Anyway, the reason why I’m blogging about the q*bee is — aside from the new layout — because we recently had some rule changes which may or may not effect those of you who’ve expressed an interest in joining previously. For example, we have abolished the rule about having your own layout; the q*bee is after all about friendship. We’ve also reduced the required trade amount down to 1 a month to make it easier for bees busy with school/work/family etc.

I’ve been running the q*bee for 4 years this year. Crazy, eh? Now, it’s just a shame I’m no better at pixelling after all this time…

    I’d say it was a perfect time to have the new layout up [for spring] :)

    I definitely know what it feels like to have a *lot* on one’s plate…

    All Hail The QUEEN BEE! Hee hee, sorry Jem couldn’t resist. The QBee is great. I honestly don’t know what I would do without it.

    I love bee*ing a part of the Bee. The short break I took, I missed it. Everyone is friendly and supportive, The Bee*Bee*S is a nice place to spend time in and relax.
