Still working on the pickle dish/wedding ring arcs here and there. I try to remember and change out my needle after I'm done because the paper dulls it so quickly. (I do re-use the needle for the paper piecing though in case you were wondering.)
More yummy arcs
I seem to be in the mood for starting projects so I decided to just roll with it. I'm back to playing with my very light gray fabrics again. We'll see if I can make anything interesting from this fabric!
Geese tracks pieces
I cut out some smaller geese track blocks thinking they will make a good centerpiece for an applique quilt I am trying to get figured out. Only for about six months now! Occasionally I am a class A ditherer. Before I ever cut into fabric for a new project I will have fabric in and out of stacks and numerous papers scribbled over with plain old gibberish. You just don't see that because it's all behind the scenes.*wink
Some treasured fabrics
What helped me jump into the geese tracks/applique project was when I remembered the small bag of my grandmas fabric that I have stashed away for 'special' projects. Adding the green and red fabric into the mix finally made everything 'click' for me and I felt that prickling sensation of pure delight in my fabric combinations! I think it really helped sharpen the blend of fabric I was already auditioning and of course--grandmas fabrics? Always very sentimental and special anyway.
Rolling Stone block progress
Then because cutting out fabric is so much fun--NOT! I decided to quit agonizing over how to do the rolling stone blocks for my Scrap Basket and just do it. The background color was giving me fits and I. Could. Not. Decide. Until I did, at about 12:30 one night (very early morning) just before I fell asleep. lol Like I said, I'm just gonna roll with it....
