I'm in the final stages of assembling several projects right now,
so my design wall is looking more and more bare =^..^=
I sewed together the Rainbow Pineapple blocks yesterday, so they came down first.
These were my Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks last year. I'm still working on the
paper-pieced flying geese border for this small wall quilt, so it's not quite done yet.
Right now it is about 20 inches, and so darn cute!
Then I started assembling the Easy Street blocks into rows.....
I'm about halfway done with assembling this top, as you can see by what is left ...
My design wall is made of two freestanding 4x8 pieces of insulation covered in batting,
so it's HUGE! I left my ladder there to show you that I have to use it to reach the top blocks :*)
(Please pay no attention to the dried paint splatters on the ladder LOL!!!)
My little room heater is there too - those Ivory Towers can be rather drafty, don't you know!
Ask any princess and she'll tell you. Why do you think they grow all that hair anyway?
To keep warm of course!!!
Because my sewing studio has those slanted ceilings common to a lot of upstairs bonus rooms, my design wall boards have to lean up against the slope in front of my project table. Of course, this can get a little awkward when I need to get to my project boxes under the table. So when it is not being used, I take the boards down and put them in another room out of the way. Easy Street has been up here for quite a while, so I'm looking forward to having all that space back in my studio!
During the Super Bowl, I had planned to work on my next Blue Collection block.
However, I didn't realize that I had not yet prepared the scrappy yellow background
until the game was ready to start. Dang! Tricked again!!!
So I picked up my knitting and worked on the other hand warmer for my right hand...
This pottery bowl was hand made by a friend, Jim Murff. He's a local artisan who does all kinds of wonderful artworks, including pottery, quilting and beekeeping.
I managed to get all the knitting done for the hand warmer, so all I have left to do is sew up the side,
leaving the hole open for my thumb.
I'm no expert knitter as you can tell from my uneven stitches LOL!!!
But I will enjoy wearing these and knowing that I made them!
Perhaps someday I'll even tackle making a pair of socks :*O
Please be sure to go to Patchwork Times to see what others have on their Design Walls!
Hugs & Blessings!
