We've had a rainy few days, which has been a much needed break from gardening. I took advantage of the weather to sew string blocks for the beginner workshop I will be presenting during this year's Fibre Arts Festival.
I've mentioned before that I often use pages from old telephone books as foundations, as they are thin and tear away easily after piecing...(plus they please my frugal heart!) However, in today's online world, telephone books are becoming smaller, and scarcer. I've been canvassing my neighbours -unsuccessfully to date- for old Aliant books to make sure there are enough on hand for the fall workshop. (Someone must have a stash somewhere...?)
We have 32 blue and white blocks completed so far, and Polly is anxious to do more.
I hate to think I am now looking forward to when tax time rolls around again next year!!
