I'll be linking this post up to both WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced and Let's Bee Social by Lorna. See the sidebar for links.
Having attempted to put away a new project the other night, I realized that I'm out of shoe boxes. Now the natural response I am sure should be to go get more shoe boxes (the very helpful guys at Red Wings Shoes said I could have as many as I want) but I thought instead I'd try something new - emptying a currently used shoe box.
I started with the easiest one on the list - the Mod Mosaic. I started these more than a year ago and then put them away when I couldn't decide on a background color. Additionally, the pattern author didn't seem to provide instructions for setting the blocks. It was one of those things that I had to mull over - apparently for more than a year.
So here it is, and the shoe box is now empty. This one is hanging up in my closet waiting to be sandwiched and quilted.
And then there was a box of Jelly Roll strips leftover from my first attempt at a bargello. I sewed for most of the day (yay for snow days!) and came up with a stack of these:
Which I will eventually turn into these:
I'm about half done - too bad I have to go to work tomorrow.
Thanks to Lee and Lorna for hosting these great link ups! Stop by and see what other crafters are sharing.
