Scrappy Wednesday

My aqua and frosty blue scraps made for a cute new temperature block.  We are in a bit of a weird weather pattern in the NorEast right now.  Some days very cold, then a bit of a jump, back to cold, and the next few days we may get very warm.  Luckily we went to warm and rain when they actually predicting a lot of snow.  BUT, you know that is coming eventually.

48 - 41 -49 -39 - 39 - 34 - 48

With my 'clean-up' mood going right now, I pulled this project.  I still can't find the rails and log cabins.  Luckily I have the little note sheet  tucked with these with the block and row/column count.  Now to try and get these into two half flimsies today.

I want to share a wonderful break My SIL and I took yesterday afternoon.  We went to the local library for a free class on making basket weave ornies.  I loved the rocks with the weave, but the class focused on the reindeer.

It took a good hour to make just one reindeer.  I need to cut the antlers once those reeds are fully dry.  Then to add a bow around his neck and the hanger.

I was happy to see such a large turnout for this class - more tables had to be set up or people watched and then once a spot opened up, they took a seat. There were all ages from children, adults, and seniors.  She had the paper woven hearts, too and ....

a woven star, but we make these with fabrics fused together and weave using the same method.  So Jeri and I gladly gave up our seats with our reindeer tucked away and headed home.  It was a great way to spend an afternoon.

Take time to play today,
Sewingly Yours,

That looks like so much fun! I'm looking forward to seeing your temperature hexies all come together in a quilt.

I think the Reindeer looks great. A friend of my went on a basket weaving course recently enjoyed it although she had aching hands at the end of it. Love the blocks. They are forecasting snow for us at the weekend, which is really unusual for us. Stay warm Hugs Susie x

Very pretty hexie. That was a great class to do at the library, the reindeer is fantastic.

Nice to see your week sitting on the cutting mat so I can tell how big it is. Yours is a little bigger than mine, by the look of it.

Those reindeer are cute! The class in the library sounds like a great idea. Nothing interesting happens in our libraries (that I'm aware of).
