Half Square triangles quilt and musings...
HI Y'all! Above are some of the half square triangles from my current scrap quilt leftovers. I had fun this morning making a little quilt out of the pieces. I was just thinking...are we a bit nutty to cut pieces of fabric into tiny bits, only to sew it together again...to make a new cloth? I was thinking I was a bit tired of piecing..."my shoulder are sore, I need a break, I need to check the laundry, I need to check on dear husband"...I could come up with a thousand reasons why I could not piece on what I was scheduled to. But add a new idea, something I came up with, like above? The minutes whirl by, with no tiredness whatsoever! Does this happen to you??
By the way, I love pink. I think I just discovered it! It makes me happy, the subtle girlish pinks, and the in your face fuchsia above...I love pinks!!
My squash are blooming!! I sure hope I have tons of squash this year!!!
