This month I made hearts for my bee blocks and really like them. Somehow, in my mind, there's nothing like patchwork and just digging out all my scraps from the pink/purple and the blue/teal stash piles made me happy. It leaves chaos in sewing world, but that's all right. I particularly like the little birds I fussy cut for each block.
After this exercise I realized that my stash was actually getting low. Last year I swore not to buy anything except solids until a significant dent was made on the shelves. I have been very successful at that, so today I went shopping to an actual fabric store and browsed their cotton remnants. I used to buy all my fabric on line, but with the Canadian dollar so low compared to the American, I don't do that anymore.
In particular, I was looking for greens and was successful! Although, the colours look a lot fresher in person than in the photo.
I was looking for something different to sash my rolling stone blocks and decided on a green fabric that made me think of buds and branches. I think it plays well with the blocks.
With the beautiful spring weather there's been lots of outside work to be done, but at least Neil got his potatoes planted. He doesn't care about anything else, but spuds are the high point of any meal in his opinion! He's a true country boy.
