Obviously the first strip had to represent all the figuring I'd done before the project even got underway.
The next day was wet and stormy, blowing the spider webs in the hedges all over the place. The yellow strip is for Mr. Bingley. That was the day he passed away. I may yet ink his name and dates on the strip, I haven't decided. The bottom strip in the photo above was to celebrate the fact that I'd actually done some sewing that day.
I've chosen to use white prints for Sundays. I plan to either ink or embroider a scripture reference on those strips. I felt truly ill on that Monday but much better on Tuesday. My son who played the tympani in orchestra had his birthday on Wednesday. I found the perfect vintage print for Thanksgiving!
So far it's been fairly easy to choose an appropriate print for each day. I have a sinking feeling that may already be at an end. I'll have to come up with a back-up plan for those days that have no stand-out experiences I guess. Maybe just a strip of whatever fabric I used that day.
I've been making more sawtooth stars this week.
I'm pretty sure I'll be making them next year as part of my participation in the RSC16. I may actually make the blocks that Angela has chosen for the year too. There are going to be more Ohio Stars, primarily in orange I think. And there will always be six inch Shoo-fly and Hole in the Barn Door (or Churn Dash) blocks!
I'm linking up with the other rainbow bloggers over at SoScrappy.
