Default MMTPT363 ~ July 14, 2015~ Your Project's Got Glitches, It's Needing More Stitches!

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY
THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY
AND CHALLENGE #323



Your Project's Got Glitches, It's Needing More Stitches!


Note: Anyone is welcome to play! You automatically become a Teapotter the first time you play in our challenge. Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun! If this is your first Teapot Tuesday Challenge, please mention that in your commentary so we can be sure to greet you properly, in pure Teapot Tuesday fashion! Your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not at all required. Just have fun!

This is my story!

1. Queenie the bee is so full of energy...she buzzes from here to there at breakneck speed, always the first in to start a new project. Pollinating an orchard or garden, starting up a spelling or geography bee, it seems that she is always on the go!

2. Queenie may be there first, but she is never there to the last. She has a habit of starting things and not following through to the finish. Whether it is boredom or BADD (Bee Attention Deficit Disorder) Queenie just never seems to be able to finish a project...she leaves that to the drones all around her.

3. Queenie heard about some orphaned bee larvae who needed the basics of survival. She decided that a quilting bee was in order to keep the young'uns warm. In characteristic style, she cut out 42,000 shapes and began to piece them when lo and behold saw a pretty patch of petunias and moved on to them...forgetting to instruct the drones in the pattern that she had chosen. Mesmerized but perplexed by the dizzying display of shapes, the drones just buzzed about, unable to execute Queenie's unexplained plan.

4. Those poor little larvae! How will the next generation of bees ever survive? Stop buzzing and flying, those threads all need tieing. Your project's got glitches, it's needing more stitches!

5. I think you know where this is going, Teapotters...we need to help those drones with this quilting bee! Let's try to bee still and help those baby bees with our quilting.

Here is a wordless but energetic bit of musical inspiration for you:


CHALLENGE TRANSLATION:
Bring your piecing skills for a quilt-themed card.

EPEC ~ (EXTRA POINTS FOR EXTRA COOKIES!)
Stitching - faux or real would be a honey of a touch on your card.

DESTINATION STATION:
This week our destination is Amarillo, TX. If you need a destination for your card, how about Lisa? Lisa a friend of Shailiekat. To find out why as well as get the address to mail your card, please visit Post#468 in the Teapot Tuesday Destination Station thread. Please remember that just because you participate in a Teapot Tuesday challenge that is combined with a card drive request, it does not mean that you are REQUIRED to send your cards. It is totally 100% voluntary!

Here is my card.

Here is a Quick Link to the Teapot Tuesday #323 Challenge Gallery.

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT323 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!

Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? SCS has given Sheri (KSNurse) permission to create an email Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and email the challenge out on the Saturday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card. Send her a pm with your email address if you wanna be a Cheater!

If you are confused about these challenges, see the first sticky post of this thread for more information. There is also a directory of individual challenges.

We get extra points to put in stitches, so I stitched all around each block!

Smile MMTPT363 Bee Happy

My story goes like this: here's little bee, coming to help with the yet to be completed hive, stitched together with orange ribbon. She's brought her trusty friend Ms. Ladybug, and a chicken for backup. As for my card, I used a honeycomb ef for my background, added some dc hexies, sewn with orange ribbon, and added a handmade bee, made of two graduated sizes of black beads, and some yellow orange embroidery floss. Here's Bee Happy!
