JANUARY DECISIONS & STORMY WEATHER
Here are the three blocks I have decided to work on for my year of RSC ; the Scrappy Split Rails , the White Crosses, and Eye of God.
I tried two other blocks: Cat Head's and Blue Crosses, but have decided to put those away for another year
I most enjoy working on these--especially those White Crosses--I am on a 2.5" square "jag" lately. Ever since I made Sleigh Bells Ring (which still needs binding!) I have fallen in love with mini squares.
I still am in a quandry about those white crosses--whether to make them in each month's colors or continue just in blue and whites. Of course that is always the decision: put away til next time around for all blue, or add different colors for rainbows.
I can definitely see Eye of God in a rainbow and even the Scrappy Rails--decisions, decisions...
I wonder what the February color will be....hmmmmm
I am posting this afternoon in the beginning stages of what is supposed to be a snow event of historic proportions here. Forecast : 24" - 36" blowing snow in up to 60mph winds here in Coastal SE CT.
We are "INSIDE" for the duration. We have a generator and 25 gals of gas on hand; plenty of food (including that necessary chocolate lol) and water (our water company may not be able to get to us to change the batteries on our pumping station if the power goes out and lasts for more than 3 days! )
And I may not be able to post for a while.....
I just love how these are turning out.... see those windswept chapels and the boats on big sea swells! These will surely bring back memories of this weeks' storms.......
These little blocks on " phone book paper"-- 5" squares--- (hip to be square, I guess lol) are such fun to make...using up those bits and bobs, leftovers, and orts of fabrics!! I love how they look so wonky,,,,
Off to make a cuppa and to watch the fine snow starting to mount up and blow--15 mph winds already!!
Hugs to all, stay safe and warm,
