MRS. RAGBAG'S ZIG ZAG
Up on my wall right now: this bunch of leftover HST'S I found tucked away in a baggie from eons ago!! They are kinda uneven (duh); they were my first attempt at HST work. Guess I gave up and put them away--but I am pressing (hah) on with them for fun! It took me about three days to figure out how to sew them together (rip-it, rip-it, 3x's--all 86 of them! Yikes!!)
That navy&brown leafy print was one of my very favorites. I don't plan to makeup any more HST's -- just use what's on hand...fun--but a little frustrating, too..
Here is our "cedar monster" after the "big snow" we had. The weight of all that icey snow finally broke it in half! I hate to lose cedars--they are so pretty...
As you can see, I haven't gotten much further with my Houses 2 little scene. I am having a really hard time figuring out how to border it --or not--so "up on the wall" pinning and un-pinning various fabrics and then just looking.....
I finally made my binding for Blues-ey yesterday and after all our errands today, hope to true-up the quilt and sew the binding on it...and so it goes, baby steps for right now....hugs from Julierose, La Blageuse
