Best stay inside and sew! I've been playing with the 1-1/2 inch squares that I'm putting together into 100-patches. Here's the latest one:
|Green things are growing! I hope they turn into flowers.|
Orange! I think it's turned out well. I was a little surprised that I had enough orange squares to make this one, but it turns out that I had a few left over. I've also made a light blue one since I last posted about this project:
I've also got a brown one, but I'm not really sure where I put it, so no picture. I also somehow managed to get another medium to dark blue block out of the scraps, which surprises the heck out of me. I haven't stitched the seams yet, but here it is ready to go:
Hard to believe these come out of those little tiny bits, isn't it? Next up is aqua, with pink on deck:
The next step is to sort out the greens, I think. Still not sure how many blocks I'll have, but I've started thinking about how to set them, and here's one idea I have:
I have a lot of squares that won't fit in with the single-color blocks, so I'm thinking of stringing them together into a kind of border around each block. Then I could put some white sashing in between the blocks and the borders would "float." I don't know, I'm still thinking.
So that's what I'm playing with right now! Why is it that when I have a lot of stress I like to play with tiny pieces? Anybody else have a problem like that?
One more thing before I go--I want to thank everyone who is a no reply commenter for the lovely comments you have left here. It seems to me that there have been way more recently than ever, so there's probably something going on again, but if you've left any comment and haven't heard from me, it's probably because you're no-reply. You can fix this, but if you don't want to, just know that I appreciate you. Thanks for stopping by!

Hope every one has a great week! Please pass the Kleenex as you go!
