New Project


Here is the start of a new project. One I'm hoping to get a couple of my girls involved in. This one will take some time, hopefully not the six years I've been working on the CQ wallhanging.
My grandkids are probably going " She hasn't finished the last project yet." I only have 2 squares left on the Rico tablecloth. If I sat down and applied myself, I could finish that one in about a week.
I've stopped on this one for a minute because I'm waiting for more Dupioni silk. Susan N. had a Dupioni buy, which is one of the reason I got going on this. I want to do several blocks using only the Dupioni and just embroidery, no laces, beads, or do=dads.
I've gotten a mental block on how to piece the blocks together. I think I just need to get a little more confidence in myself and just get on with it. Anyway, happy April Fools day. I hope you aren't having too many tricks played on you. Just a note about April Fools: One year when the kids and I were by ourselves ( there was me and 5 kids for about 5 years) They had great fun filling the sugar bowl with salt. Boy, try that one in your coffee on a slow and groggy morning.

I love that centre block you are using. What a lovely idea using Dupioni silk. I look forward to seeing more photos of this as you continue working on it.

What a beautiful center piece! I pieced a heart all in Dupioni today and it was so nice!
