Last month I only made three blocks, and felt they were pretty muddy. This month I made an effort to introduce some lighter, brighter colors and I was able to make six blocks. I use 3" strips to create blocks that will finish at 15" each.
To see what others are making out of their scraps click on over to Kate or Gun's blogs where you'll find a list of participants.
And now for the splurge...
You may be aware that I've recently started following the Victorian Sampler Motto Shoppe and have been drooling over her hand dyed floss. My birthday is this month. What better excuse to buy myself a present?!

And in case you've left me a comment recently but have not heard back from me, it's the same old story: I have been incapacitated by toxins. I went out to prune the old rose bush under my studio window without wearing my protective mask, thinking I would be okay. There were enough fumes from my neighbor's laundry products to set me back. Then I had to take Luna to the vet for an emergency visit. Places like that are laden with chemicals my body doesn't have the capacity to handle anymore but I couldn't find anyone else to take her in for me. She will be okay; it seems to be an injury to her right eyelid. Hubby arrived at the vet clinic in time to pay the bill and the vet was kind enough to talk with me outdoors about follow up care for Luna. One reason we use that clinic is their proximity to our house. I made it home safely and ate yet another small bowlful of frozen blueberries. They are the most effective treatment I've found to mitigate the immediate reactions to chemical exposures. Thank goodness for natural remedies. Too bad there's still a recovery period to be endured. Thanks for hanging in there with me. :- )
