Weekly update: it's a flimsy!
I love to see the sunrise over the lake. I took this picture Friday. I'd hoped to get a picture of the full Harvest Moon rising over the lake on Saturday but it was cloudy.
Sewing is a respite during stressful times. (Unless, of course, the stress is caused by a stalled project!)
I forged ahead and made ten more blocks for my Rainbow Scrap challenge. I repeated the monthly colors with one exception. I used regular gray rather than "grayed purple." Each of the blocks used 8 HSTs. Since HSTs come in pairs I had 160 spares.
I thought I would use them for the border. When I auditioned a few I thought that the mixed-up colors detracted from the intensity of the one-color blocks.
I searched my stash and found that I had enough of this bright floral print to cut 4.5" borders. (I've used it before: here and here. There is still a chunk left -- I wonder if I can get another border out of it.)
The flimsy is 58 x 68 and used 4-1/4 yards. (And I have 160 HSTs for another project.)
