Anyway we got pretty lucky, because we had our queens wings clipped so the bees had to come back to the hive, and we got them into a new hive box so now we have three hives instead of two! Which is super exciting if you ask me. That's my Justin scooping up the clustering bees to put them in the new hive with my dustpan.
oh! and yesterday we got this from the UPS man! Justin has been all over the net looking to order us some hatching eggs. I'm hoping for some fancy silkies or some wellington bannies, but i know he's been looking at some malay bannies so we'll see. But how exciting to have our own incubator!

So this is what i'm working on these days. This quilt is the cover quilt for bh&g american patchwork & quilting apr 2009 issue. The pattern is for a lap quilt, but i'm attempting to make it a full side quilt. I'm hopeing to be done by winter so we will have a nice warm new quilt on our bed. It will be my first full size quilt.
So, I am in love with this one I used the blush color set of the Heather Ross Mendocino line with cream cordaroy and chocolate brown cotton for solids. The backing is the coral print from urban outfitters I'm using to make curtains for the living room. Totally matches my orange chair i got for my birthday.
Well thats whats up on the sewing table these days. Actually my sewing table is really my coffee table, but thats a story for another day. oh, and dear blogger it sucks that i can't move my pictures around anymore.

so yesterday i went to help Justin's mom and sister clean out the attic, and came home with a box of treasures for the old man. it was super fun to go through it with him last night. this is his prized bottle collection, well the bits that didn't make it home with us when we moved.
i like this bottle because the glass is purple. i think it was some kind of liquor bottle.
