a little Distraction
Lots on my table today. Thanks for your well-wishes on that last almost. Mr. Flu has certainly struck, but so far I am fairing well; and, ironically, finding plenty of time to sew as each little one is choosing to hole up in a bedroom. One is sleeping after a hard night at it and the is other reading away. (Ms. Aria is trying to stay in a germ-free zone. Smart.)
Cutting these background pieces for the Gathering Flowers pattern has been making a tower of green scraps. Nice green scraps. Tantalizing green scraps.
I've decided today is a good day for a little distraction, so I'm cutting those scraps into 3" squares. It's ok if the corners are missing a smidgen. That'll be tucked into seam allowances.
Then I pulled a passle of scraps in light, happy colors.
When Aria came out to indulge in some human interaction, she arranged them in the checkerboard pattern that I'd imagined. What do you think?
I see green spring love!
