I was working on some knitting that I don't want to talk about for much of this week. (Don't ask. I'll talk if I decide I like it later.) It's also been a week of battling a yellow jacket nest in the wall of the kitchen (yes, yellow jackets have been getting in the house too), and of leaking toilets. But I did manage to get back to a bit of stitching.
I'm enjoying stitching on this piece (the title is right there at the bottom).
The first page is done and I've started the second. (The second page extends as far as you see the border go in the first picture.) I'm using the called for GAST and WDW fibers with 40ct Doubloon linen from Picture This Plus.
I also did another fussy cut Friday star, using what I think is a Kaffe Fassett fabric.
We're up to 40 stars now -- which means there are only 12 more Fridays this year?! Wow! (We are doing one per week in this fussy cut Friday thing. See details here.) Anyway, so here are my 40 all laid out so far. I'm loving how they look together.
Various of you have asked what happens with these fussy cut stars. I keep changing my mind, but at the moment, I believe I will use the same size diamonds to surround each star -- in various white, off-white or white on white fabrics. Then sew them all together. The white diamonds should make up the hexagon shapes you see in the picture. I'm not sure what size quilt will result, but I guess I'll find out! We'll see if my plan changes or not.
I will leave you with a couple of rather blurry pics of Mia being playful.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week!
