I haven't been able to leave the stack of old blocks alone. It's so fun to play around with setting fabric, especially when I have no attachment or vision for what they should be.
Figuring a layout on the designs wall.
What I thought would work, but is hardly noticeable.
Then I saw this fabric in the cabinet, oh fun!
Oh, oh, and then I saw this fabric!!!!!
It definitely helps having a dark center in the blocks, and I do realize why these blocks were never finished. There is a bit of an issue of them laying flat. I'm thinking that they look enough like a flower that a pucker here and there around the center would only add to the design element. Right?
It's rare for me to have yardage of fabric and I might as well use it, there is certainly nothing else calling for it. I hope to work on it soon, or it could become one of those exercises where you design an entire project and eventually put it all away, simply satisfied with the creative stretch. Time will tell.
We lost our cat, 'Monkey', a couple of months ago, and the girls have been begging for kittens. A few weeks ago, they went to the animal shelter and brought these two home, Oliver and Tucker. They've been a bit of a distraction, fun and entertaining in every way! It's always playtime for them.
