I made 4 more blocks last night. I'm not sure if the "in your face" striped one will stay or not. It will depend on the rest of the blocks that I make. Earlier in the day I ironed the 3 flannel backings and cut one batting so I'm getting closer to a finish on one or more of them. I'm hoping to get all 3 done by the end of the month.
When I looked at the skeins of thread yesterday that I had shown on my blog I realized that couldn't be all of them because there were only 2 sizes of thread and I knew I had all 4 that Laura hand dyes. I found the rest of it so now you can see my whole stash of it. Yes, for those of you asking what do I do with it, it is stash. When the day and purpose are right it will get used. Laura talks about how to use it on her website if you need some ideas. In the past when I traveled with a generic black suitcase I made tassels for the zipper pulls out of the hand dyed thread. I could always identify my suitcase quickly. I also put hand dyed braided tails on my thumb drives because they can hide so well on my messy desk. I can always find them with their bright tails.
My pale pink cactus is still blooming and I have buds on 3 red cacti, one of them in this photo. My orange one should be blooming in about 3-4 days.
