Moda Blog HopWednesday, April 29, 2015
Can you find me? I'm the queen of this hive. (The small blue dot on my head can help you locate me.) Alma and Barb have left me in charge of the blog today, and I'm just your "take charge" kind of gal.
My workers have been busy coming and going from the hive. There has been plenty of nectar this spring for my workers to bring back to the hive and make into honey.
No quilts for us over the winter! My workers form a cluster around me and the brood, keeping us warm. As it gets colder, my workers begin to shiver. They vibrate their flight muscles to raise their body temperatures. The center of all this activity can get pretty warm....about 93 degrees F. When a worker gets cold she just moves into the center of the group to warm up.
No wonder when spring comes we are all a buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Spring quilt market is rapidly approaching (May 15-17) and while my workers and I are busy with our "Garden Party," Alma and Barb have been planning a small party of their own. Since their new line of fabric "Hyde Park" will be shown to shop owners in July, they are going to take a working break.....and wouldn't I like one too! (After laying 2,000 eggs each day, believe you me, I'm ready to kick back a bit.)
Barb and Alma are going to the beach the first week of May. (Above you can see the only beach we get to go to. As if the bird bath is even close to the same thing. Sometimes life just isn't fair!) They are going to have a "Plum Sweet" time. Alma says she will be posting from the beach letting everyone know what they are up to ....so be sure to check back next week.
Hope you all have a "honey" of a time checking out our Moda friends today!
