Playing with triangles........

I can't start a new big project until next week so I just took the box of triangles that I cut from scraps with my die cutter and sewed contrasting values together.  This will be an ongoing busy work project for a couple months.  


The art quilters are coming next Monday, I have some minor alterations to do on a bridesmaid dress for my granddaughter, a family reunion Sunday and 3 desserts to bake for Sunday and Monday.  I will just need busy work to unwind with each evening.  Oh, and I forgot, it is the last free brush pick up for the year so I need to get a few more volunteer trees cut down and added the pile on the end of my driveway.

Colorful busy work. I think we all need busy work to work out the stress of the day. I mended a shirt today and hated to think about doing that sort of sewing again after years of doing it. Hope it goes well. Chris

Juicy color triangles! I did a lot of cutting today, getting prepped to some piecing. I don't have a cutter so I use the shape cut ruler, and it is not so bad.

love the colors of the triangles. Sometimes busy work is all we need to do in the evenings.

That is quite a list of things to do in the next few days! Kind of sounds like my weekend. It is cool that you will be able to get a little sewing squeezed in!

You do take advantage of all of your "free" moments. It sounds like you have a couple of busy days.

HST's have to be one of my most favorite units to work with! I read your blog every day, and am just in awe of your tenacity to keep up with everything! Maybe one day I can be like you! ;-)

Looks like you have a busy, busy time coming up! I began using up the left overs from my HST project, I love the way you are using contrasting values, mine are just going together however they come out of the box.
