Thank you all for your support. Losing my dog was rough, but it helps to know that people understand. Also, it makes me happy to know that so many of you have pets that you love as much as I did my dear Buzz. So many lucky little furry creatures!
I've been able to spend more time at home this week, adjusting to the silence without getting upset. As such, I've was able to finish latest block for the Mid Mod Bee. This is for Jess:
I made this block for a charity project for the Brighton Modern Quilt Guild:
And a few more kelp quilt strips came in the mail, making it more and more fun to look at the clothesline strung behind my bed.
I love having these out where I can see them. It started as a way to keep them from being crushed, but now I think I'm going to set up a permanent design wall in my living room. Also, I start a full time job next week and its going to necessitate me crafting in dribs and drabs, rather than in lengthy sessions. I think having a design wall will keep the dribs and drabs coming quickly.
Can anyone comment on the relative effectiveness of flannel vs. quilt batting? I want the blocks/fabric to stick to that wall and not go floating off behind the couch.
