Well, Snow Watch 2013 continues. Ripley is officially ten months old. He loves it outside. He's in kind of the destructive puppy stage-- I think he ways around 65 lbs. The stakes don't seem so high with this pup, so I take the destruction in stride. I tell myself Ripley thinks I need a new one--- what ever is destroyed. He does have a great temperament and once the 'puppy' gets out of him-- he's going to be awesome.
We took photos yesterday evening. It all started last week. I had my bundle of Field notes pressed and ready to cut into a project. I made myself go down and clean the sewing room up before starting the new project.
I picked up a jelly roll that my MIL gave me that I had marked up for piecing one might while watching TV. I decided to sew it up instead of putting it away.
I took a Thangles template and made a cardboard pattern. I made 2.5 inch Thangles that will turn into 2 inch size half square triangle units.
I'm no good at removing paper between seams and so this worked real nicely. So I took the other jelly roll I got for Christmas and cut it up as well.
Two different fabric lines by two different designers, but I think they are going to blend together well.
There's even purple in the mix.
Every night I press a few pieces down.
What am I making? I told Don I'm not really sure-- but it's going to have pinwheels and I want it to be that piece that the kids fight over after I'm long gone....I have narrowed it down a little
It will probably come from one of these. Anyway I think I have time on my side-- I don't plan on going anywhere any time soon....
