Winter Blues


I have to admit I didn't sew much this week. But this morning I wanted to make some of the alternate blocks for Winter Blues. Done. Then I cut some of the sashing pieces and put some blocks on my design wall to see how this was going to look. Happily, I LOVE IT! I have made over 40 of the navy 16-patch blocks. I cut more of everything this am so now even if I only have 15 minutes during the week, I can make progress.

In case you're wondering, I'm still making slow progress on Cheddar Bow Ties, but I put away my green/gray lozenge project for now. Still working on my Sue Spargo wool bird blocks, too.  

Remember these houses for Color My World? guessed. I don't like the background sky fabric for this use. It's a bit too dark. So I went on a search.

I found this and ordered it. I like that it is light and the grid lines give it movement. I have a local friend who is making this, too. I told her I was not changing my mind again. She showed me (via internet) what she was going to use. Well, that sent me down another rabbit hole. I found this:

This is not what my friend is using, but I happened on it and loved it. It mimics the busy-ness of the fabric used in the original Color My World, but I like that it's black/white/gray so my houses will stand out.  Yes, I ordered this one, too. 

So now I'm in a fabric waiting game. I hope it will be here before long and I can make my FINAL decision. They will be releasing the next step on February 1 and I haven't even decided on fabric yet! I'll get caught up, I'm sure.

In other updates, I finished my diamond painting. The photo doesn't do it justice. It really is pretty and sparkly. I'll frame it and put it away for next Christmas. 

Our little Sadie is 10 months old today! The months are flying by! 

Stay safe!
