"SEA GLASS" STRIPS





For this scrap strippy quilt (a la Bonnie Hunter Quiltville Cam project) I chose 
mostly lighter colors that remind me of the sand and sea and sky.  I have  a semi-controlled group that I pulled from my tangled basket(s!) of scraps.  I have 31 blocks finished and seem to have MORE scraps now than when I started...somehow ????(LOL).  

This afternoon I finally got back to sewing up 11 more strips on 2.5 x 8.5 inch old telephone pages I have precut.  

In the meantime, tho', in between times......

Do you find that in the midst of a big project you just HAVE to make a few other things:  LIKE....I was awake at 3 am and so....voila

 A little wall hanging for my granddaughter, Fiona and her new baby sister Willa Rose....
(this one an idea from Rial at The Q and U Blog)..I added.those "bone buttons"-hair  and they are from my Grand'mere's button box--I like using up things with a special meaning for me.  And so, they will go down to another generation...nice.

Tonight I will be tearing papers off the strips I made today while watching the Red Sox...if they don't win, I'll still have those strips ready to go tomorrow (ROTFLOL)...

Hugs, and thanks for inviting me to post about my string-ey doings....hugs, Julierose, La Blageuse

Fun to see how your controlled color group evokes the theme in your mind!

Oh! Those are really beautiful. You really have the talent in making beautiful stuffs. But have you considered the idea of marketing your creations?
