Hi Everyone, thank you for the countless visits and sweet comments.
You are so encouraging, and patient with me, as I figure all this out.
Please do leave a comment in either
English, Dutch, Spanish or Papiamento,
and I'll try to get back to you a.s.a.p.
At the beginning of the year Stephanie over at Loft Creation offered a challenge: To use up our load of scrap and start stripping! Robyn, our Fearless Leader over at GHQA and GHQA2, told us about it in her awesome blog Daisyquilts. I couldn't resist, as I rarely can resist anything Robyn proposes! And signed up. As I had been in organizing mode I went back to the oldest scraps and started there. That box had not been opened for 10 years! I challenged myself to use only what I already had cut into strips and not to add any new fabric to it. The blocks were so much fun to make, I managed to make 14. Odd number for a quilt.
Like most people, I do my hand-stitching and hand-quilting in front of the t.v. in the evenings. I usually have several projects going so inevitably I tend to take over the dining room table. I have had this lovely hand-made basket for years, but it needed a lining for me to feel comfortable to stick my quilts in.
(^_^) ...big happy grin.
The flannels were a joy to work with... and I even made 4 stripy pockets: one for my scissors, one for my crochet hook, and 2 shallow ones for my thimble and quilting thread.
And even though it looks quite amateurish I had a blast!
I already have collected a big pile for project number 2!
