Brrrrrr! Yikes it's been cold. I LOVE winter. Love it. I'm always sad when it's over. I do love the change of seasons and part of me gets a thrill when the windows can be opened, the leaves start to bud and a trip to the car isn't an ordeal, but at the same time I lament the passing of winter. We're supposed to get another 3 to 5 inches of snow tonight, people all around are groaning and it's hard for me to contain the smile.
Here is the block for the paper piecing project. The plan was to set aside this one to do the anniversary party table toppers but now I have a new plan. I have geen going round and round trying to figure out how I wanted these toppers to look and nothing was doing it for me. Using all gold and white (50th anniversary) sounded BORING, even with different shades and fabrics. I like brown and gold, but that wasn't doing it for me either. I thought about not worrying about color and using jewel tones and while I think that would be pretty, that wasn't quite right either. I kicked around using one big block, 4 smaller blocks, 16 little bitty blocks...nope. I knew I had to find just the right thing.
I have to finish these project blocks first, though, so I'll have used all the vine that I need for them. I guess I could cheat and just do the vine part (I just realized that as I was typing, LOL) but I really want to finish them and assemble the top. That was my planned post holiday project so it would be nice to finish it and get it basted.
