Fresh Modern Bee - 15! And maybe one spare

So, we're up to 15 - Lynne (that's me), Viv, Melissa, Jessica, Amy, Bessie Mae, Jolene, Karrie Lyne, Shelley, Janice, Jennifer, Tammy, Marianna, Ulrike, Mandy and Danielle (OK, that's one too many - go to my Flickr post and let me know whether you think that's nuts!). That's two from the UK, one from NZ, one from Canada, one from Germany, three from Texas, two from Illinois, two from California, one from Georgia and two more from the US as well and maybe also one extra from Australia. So we may as well get started on swapping information. For those who have blogs, I've have added in a link through your names at the start of this post so you can all go and visit /follow each other - it would be fun to get to know each other during this next year and a bit.

Could you all start off by emailing me (email address is in my profile) with the following:

1. Email address and home address. I will only share these in a round robin email and not online. Only give me information you are happy to have shared with the whole bee.
2. First, second and third choice of month, bearing in mind we will have a 15 month plan (June 2010 to September 2011), even if it doesn't end up running to 15 months. If everyone wants similar months, I'll chuck the names in a hat so let me know if there are any months you don't want to do or can't do.

Once you've done that, click on the Fresh Modern Bee to the right of this page which will take you to our Flickr page. If you join there, we can all keep in touch through that page. I have written a hastily worded introduction which I can only apologise for - it's pretty boring but I'm not really awake yet.

If you're techno savvy, add the Fresh Modern Bee as a button (I know, you'll have to make all the text and links yourselves because I don't know how to make a button!) onto your blogs. And, even better, if anyone fancies designing a better one, please do, because mine is a sorry little thing! I'll let Quilting Bee Blocks know about the bee and we can add our blocks to that page too.

I am really excited. It was fun yesterday visiting everyone's blogs and Flickr streams. And, along the way, if anyone wants to drop out at any time for any reason, don't feel bad, we all know life can get in the way. Just let me know and can plan around you. OK, off to get coffee and feed the cats.
