Fun with Red
Just look at what I woke up to this morning. It's the end of March Break and this is so typical of the type of surprise we can expect. During my years of teaching, whenever I planned a getaway for March Break I could count on a snow storm as I was leaving or on my return. .2017 hasn't disappointed even though I'm retired I still worry about the poor folks trying to get away or return on time. Today is a perfect day to just stay inside and keep on sewing.
This week I feel so much better about what I've accomplished. I started with these little nine patches;
then added the hourglass blocks.
I just had to see how they would all work together with the previous two month's colours.
Now I had a mess of scraps on my cutting table from some previous projects and rather than sorting them into their bins I decided to sew up some Little Monkeys.
Notice the red and white and teal and white - these were left over from the 9 patches and put to good use in the Little Monkeys.
There were still a few bits left over so I made this little improv piece too.
I'm working on some beading on this piece and will share the final results. This little piece just says, "Joy" to me.
And now I'll be hopping over to soscrappy to see what red gems others have created this week.
