I’m feeling generally tired and I’ve been conserving my energy, spending a little less time in my studio. Snowshoeing is the only outdoor option as our streets are icy and rutted, sometimes full of water, and not great for walking.
I’ve been giving myself permission to rest when I need, picking up my knitting or maybe reading. This too shall pass.
I have progressed some on my surfer adding more fused pieces as I go. I found some of the white water that I’d made for another piece.
I’m concentrating on all the little slivers before I move on to the stitching.
Last year, made 1 Swoon block and got so frustrated trying to cut pieces for the second block that I gave up. Since I’m trying to clear out some UFO’s, I pulledit out and got a friend who has made it to help me cut and lay out the pieces.
Today, I put together the one 9 patch on the bottom right.
Here is the first block.
Optimally, 6 blocks would work well for a twin sized quilt but I may only have 3 blocks in me! If so I’ll add some smashing s and maybe some smaller stars.
