I am trying to get back in studio to make things. I wanted to paint cards, bead ornaments, and sew. I haven't had time to do anything til this this week. I dragged out the scrap bag of Christmas fabrics, and found 6 star blocks the same size.
then tried to find a fabric to insert in spaces between. Amazing, my entire stash didn't have one that worked! So I got out my little box of 2" squares and just put some in the space to see what it might look like
I like it but I'll have to cut squares 3" to make a 12.5" block...
|70 3" squares cut
then I have to pick a background for the squares... oh no... that's a problem as I want it Christmas colors but have used beige, tan, green and red... and now nothing works as background!
Crikey! what now???
better take a break to have a sweetie

DH comes in to hand me this and say....
"here, this half square triangle was in the washer" which means he is an honorary member of the Husbands-who- live-with-quilters and something gets in...
