Life has been a blur since last Thursday. Lots of family activities to attend that were mostly unplanned but lots of fun. However, it left no time to stitch or knit or sew during the weekend. I definitely hope to change that pattern this week.
I did achieve a little progress earlier in the week on my Scrappy Trip quilt - 4 more blocks for a total of 12. If I make 36, I'm 1/3 of the way complete. I know its not much. but I'm looking for some level of achievement here - LOL!
I have to say I am loving it! Now this is the 3rd week I've worked on this and the 3rd different design pattern I've tried. I think 3rd time is the charm. I really like the concentric rings of color. There is a bit of variety because while the yellow, orange and black/white rings stick with different tones the one color family, for the reds I sometimes substituted pink and for the blue I've sometimes used purple and for the greens sometimes I used aqua. This has allowed me to paw through even more of my stash which is a lot of fun.
This week I added scissors and some polka dot chickens...
and some dancing ducks and a funky pig...
and some happy pigs!
Now the duck and pigs are from an old line of fabric from KP Kids by Kari Pearson for SSI Fabrics. Does anyone else remember KP Kids? I love her style - lots of cute animals wearing clothes. I don't know what there is about an animal all dressed up but I can't resist them. I have a couple of pieces that have pigs dressed as farmers and another with ballerina pigs. I recently saw a new collection of KP Kids fabric which featured cute bugs but it is the pigs that really make me smile.
