Welcome to all my new followers! Since the Liebster Award came along, I have noticed the number of followers has more than doubled (from 4 to 11, that would be almost tripled!) and I really appreciate each one of you. Thank you for your patience with my ramblings and woolgatherings!
Jo's Country Junction, but it's pretty much just free-form patchwork with very little advance planning and no strict rules about fabric matching. I'm trying to make as many tree blocks as possible -- some are double height, but most blocks will be 6" finished, with plenty of dark green to tie the whole thing together. But in addition I have lots of leftover scraps, orphan blocks and dead-end blocks that will find their home in the top. And if one of the tree trunks has a bit of a lean, and some of the fabric is from old sheets or curtains, or there is the bottom half of an orange T-Rex wandering through the forest, that suits my aesthetic just fine. Most of these blocks were made in the last few days... I have acres of scraps to sort through and about 90 more blocks to make before I quit. It will be messy in my sewing area for awhile yet.
bathmat rug that's been hibernating for awhile, on size 15 needles. I'm stranding 6-7 strands of reclaimed cotton yarn from thrift store sweaters. The socks are about 9 stitches per inch; the rug is about 2 stitches per inch. I get a bit of vertigo switching back and forth. And the book is my recent purchase, Scraps and Shirttails II. Lots of dream quilts in there!
