This week I have felt like a juggler short of an arm, but keeping at it, one thread at a time makes a difference :-)
I got a class scheduled at a very short notice - Monday next week, and I will be there, well prepared :-)
It means that I have had one week shorter than I thought to prep stitcheries, models and papers. Instead of one stitchery class, I am teaching two stitchery classes - it will be fun.
I think I have an autumn fling gene instead of a spring fling gene, so I have sorted in my scraps, trying to beat their multiplying by cell dividing by using them at a high speed.
Every morning this week, before sewing, drawing or working on my stitchery class I have spent an hour or so doing string blocks. The blocks are 9,5", sewn on muslin foundation.
When I have joined the blocks, they will get a blue border and then I will put the quilt top away for September and start another string quilt.
The next one will be red and yellow - I think.
I have found that doing these string blocks is like using the exercise bike before a workout - the muscles gets the swing of it and the mind can wander on creative paths :-)
PS. My friend loved the double 4-patch quilt !
