I got two more Granny Blocks done yesterday – I had been away from them a little bit what with all the cleaning I have been doing in here.
They do look pretty up on the wall – I still need to stop back at Hobby Lobby to get more flannel for the rest of the wall and more boxes. Looking at the blocks I can get more of an idea what colors to choose – like the middle row that has both red and yellow in it – I need a couple more in those type of colors to balance it all out in the end or that one block will stand out.
The boxes that I am using for organizing my fat quarters and my scraps that I get from Hobby Lobby can be found here they are acid-free. I had a few place concerns about using boxes to store fabric in as they thought they would get stained – I have never had a problem with that but the boxes are acid free as they are intended for photo storage. The couple boxes that are on the shelves now that are regular cardboard will be replaced as soon as I pick up more of the photo storage boxes – I ran out. The cute fancy looking smaller boxes I got at a store here in the US called Dollar General another store here called Tuesday Morning I think has them also – I do not have any link for them and I did a search – I’m afraid I do not know if any place over seas sells them.
Work continues on the Diamonds are Forever – I am connecting the 5th row on here. This is my listening to the news work have to do something enjoyable to get through that it is always depressing!
Status on the Uncommon, Common Bride – on to the last borders! Unless my fingers give out on me I should be done with this one within 2 weeks I think (or I hope).
I think the hydrangea is confused – budding out already from some of the warm weather we have had and here it is freezing cold again for the last couple of days and next week more to come again. I have to start wandering the yard at this time of year to start to see if anything is showing signs of spring – yes the plants are showing signs – besides the hydrangea I found some little buds for leaves to develop on the rose bushes and a couple trees!
Now this photo might look odd but I had a hard time taking a photo looking out the window at night! on Sunday night it was still about 50 degrees at 10 PM and we had moths on the window that had been attracted to the light in the sewing room (excuse the reflections)! they have been coming and going with the cold/warm weather – I’m really surprised they haven’t died!
