I'm sitting here with one doozy of a head cold. Ugh. Mostly just the very sneezy sniffly type so far but enough to make me feel pretty mellow. The kids are playing together at the soccer field nearby (a new thing that they do together, without us, and it's kind of nice!) and my husband is doing some errands so I'm having some quiet time to myself.
I have the first of my big scrappy HST blocks finished! I am quite happy with it, though it doesn't show the contrast of the layout quite as much as I hoped it would (maybe I need a lesson in value?? maybe I used too many different "neutrals"??). That said, I think it might be more obvious once I have all 4 of the blocks made and joined. But regardless, I still think it looks cool and it's great to get through some more of my scraps.
Remember these jumbo granny squares????
I've been thinking about re-visiting these and doing something with them finally, but my hesitation has been that I don't remember which solid I used for the background so I've been putting it off. Well, I found out this week that this is where being specific on the blog can come in handy! I looked back in my blog posts and found that I'd made note of it, and it's Kona Snow! Phew. Blog to the rescue. :)
I think this is where I'll stop for now because the kids are home and one of them is requesting raisin bread toast. :)
Have a good weekend everyone.
