block is really fun, and I just thought I'd make a few to try it out, (at first I was thinking, soft muted colors) but the next thing you know I had a pile of primary colored daisy squares begging to be a blanket. It's at that stage where you have enough blocks that you should commit to it and do something with them, but not enough finished that you actually can. So, eight more to go and a baby blanket it is.
I started quilting on my shoo fly quilt all the while dreaming about Clam shell quilts and
giant Log Cabins. Anything but half square triangles. The block from my last post was full of them and I only ended up making a grand total of 4. I'm going to add some linen and turn them into place mats.
I'm realizing that not everything I make needs to be a full size something or other. I usually have a "go big or go home" attitude when I begin a project, and maybe that's why I don't finish everything I start. From now on if my quilt/crochet becomes boring, overwhelming or stuck, maybe I should stop right there, and see if it can become a smaller version of itself.
Totally unrelated, as part of my ongoing spring cleaning, I did a mini make-over in one of the downstairs bathrooms today. It's mostly cosmetic, changing out towels and accessories. I had to re-paint the dresser because the paint was chipping off in places and I never really liked it's yellowish color anyway. Besides, the dog chewed one of the rugs. Sigh.
