The usual

As is usual for me, when I cannot decide what to work on, or when I don't feel my normal self, I always can sew a few crumb blocks.  Of all the fabrics in these, less than half are scraps from my projects or my daughter projects.  The others are scraps that I buy at a local quilt shop just to add variety to mine.

I know that is crazy...what is even crazier is that some of them are so pretty and such a nice size that I have a hard time cutting them.  I don't mind using strips and strings of fabric...but when it is a bigger than 3 o 4 inches, I tend to avoid cutting them...I think there will come something I want to use them for.  And actually have a couple things in mind...

These little blocks are different sizes...mostly between 3½ to 4½ inches...and are not necessarily square.  My current plans are this:  they are going to be surrounded with strips of fabric.  and then trimmed to 6½ inch squares.  I am thinking I will use the same fabric throughout, but if not through out, then at least the same fabric around each little crumb block.  But I have been known to change my mind.

Another crazy thought is I keep looking at the weave-it looms, but I need one like I need another hole in my head.  I do not need any more hobbies.  I have not started another puzzle, but am very tempted to.


My hip is feeling a LOT better...I go tomorrow for another adjustment and am thinking it might be the last.  I am still taking ibuprofen on a regular basis.   But it feels wonderful to be able to walk pretty much normal.

I hope you have had a good weekend and that your week ahead is a good one.
