Scrappy Sunday

Block #34wow. another week has gone by. this is honestly the first time i have layed out the blocks. it doesn't really make much difference which order i put them in.i'm going to say design wall. but it's really the back of plastic table cloth nailed above my couch. my design wall is only showing you a 5 by 5 layout. looking for one more middle or middle substitute so i can make a 5 x 7 layout.

Scrappy Sunday

i made a Block #34 yesterday using my last middle least i thought it was my last. turns out it was that square i found in my stash a few weeks ago. but oops. i didn't check the size before i started sewing. it was 1/2 in too big. couldn't figure out why my pre-cut-just-a-bit-bigger-than-9-1/2 in.-strip-last-to-sew-on was too small. the whole time i was thinking i am going to miss this block. and that i should just make it again. and what would i do different. i was also working on my Fala today i will re-sew my scrappy block. and finish up the handwork on Fala.

Patiently Waiting

while i wait for the roses to bloom. i continue to take short visits to my local amazing fragrance coming from the yellows.across the path from the rose garden there is more to see. i just call these purple pompoms.a small tree with loads of new buds.another small tree with these hanging yellow flowers.behind is the small front of greenhouse.a beautiful mix of new buds and closed flowers and then the fully open ones with large petals and gold centers.and then i make my way back to this bench to do some knitting.i love to watch tennis on t.v. so for two weeks the French Open has provided me with hours of knitting pleasure. but then i have to get outside. i have stopped at Starbuck's to knit so much that it was time to check in with my knitting friends at the local shop. i missed last month's sale but went ahead and checked the mark-down-bins. here's a peek at my $4. scarf. i found two lonely skeins in different colors and mixed them in my favorite stitch.and $10. for yarn i was eventually going to buy anyway i was pushed to overcome my issues with crochet. it was so enjoyable sitting around the big wooden table listening to everyone as they each worked on their own special projects. i missed that.
