I think I've found it...that thing that went missing a couple years ago when I started knitting like a fiend. My sewing mojo is back!
Yesterday I rooted through my scrap stash, made a nice size pile...
sorted by size and shape, sort-of, lol
and started pressing it all nice and flat.
printed a few block foundations from my Foundation Factory program
and tried to visualize where I'd be going with it all.
A quilt is beginning to take shape in my head...scrappy fish, boats, flowers and baskets. At the foot (where it hangs off the bed) I'll have blocks that spell out our last name and our wedding date, aww, doesn't that sound romantic? That way I won't have to ask The Saint, "now what year did we get married?" My memory sucks!
Today the first two birdie blocks came together
On Saturday when Rena and I got to spend some quality together at City Knitting I finished the Engineer's Stocking Hat. Had to make the pompom for the end. It was the perfect finish, don't you think?
Thanks for stopping by. Have a safe and Happy New Year celebration. See you next year!
