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? Well...you 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.
