Let's Book It February 2015 Winner
I received another bag of scraps and after dumping it, found that it had a lot of strings. So I pulled my very untamed string shoe box out - geesh - no room there. So some sorting, some fabrics set aside to use in my next Let's Book It project, and ..........
pulled those old phone book papers to start some string blocks. Now string blocks are not difficult, but boy they get boring after a while. BUT, I wanted that mess cleaned up and contained.
After 3 days - 80 string blocks (my papers are cut 7.5" square because that's what the width of the paper was) waiting to see if they will be trimmed to a regular 6.5" block or will I half them to pair up with a solid? But this looks so much better. AND that shoe box is neat with 1.5" or skinnier on one side and the 2.5" strips on the other side. Much more workable - and I can get the lid on it now!!
The winner of the Vintage Sewing Machine pin and Storm at Sea Charm:
#6 - Kathy S
She's using the Let's Book It to complete a long term project and it is looking smashing. I will send an e-mail off to her for mailing info.
March has not been kind with her weather to many areas - those of use experiencing the cold, snow, ice - we keep quilting on. BUT I long for the Spring - maybe I need to pull some new fabric to inspire Mother Nature.
