I was tired last night so I just sorted batik scraps while I watched 3 shows on TV. I got them sorted into sizes and pressed also. We had a very good turnout for the QOV sew in and got a lot accomplished. I was not at my best after 2 nights of interupted sleep. Sunday night the smoke detector started chirping at 1:30 a.m. It had made a couple chirps the morning before so I looked in the direction sheet that came with it 7 years ago and it said the lithium battery was almost dead when it starts chirping. I figured I had a day or 2 to replace it, but no, it started chirping once every minute 1:30 til 8 a.m. Now in my younger days I would have gotten up, grabbed a ladder and got up there and pulled the battery out, but I'm older and much more cautious about my safety now, plus I'm not sure how steady I would have been at 1:30. I did drift in and out of sleep, but let's say it wasn't very restul.I had an idea of cutting rectangles to go between the little bits blocks and then stagger them. I thought maybe some black and white prints might work, so I grabbed a couple from my stash and laid the blocks out approximately how they would be if I did it.
I like the white with black better than the black with white, but I haven't made any decisions other than that. I probably need to try some other prints too.
