It's not just my fingers that are crossed,

so are the blocks I've been stitching up for a new project to be used in my sewing space. 
 It all started with a white linen skirt I scooped from a thrift sale for $2.   Here's  the one half that remains of the lovely skirt. ;o)
Next, I went searching through my bins of left over strips and came up with a colour scheme (it's still looks like winter outside my window, with all the snow we keep getting, so I found myself thirsting for something lively in terms of colours).

Oh, how I love seeing the blocks come together! Trying to come up with a final layout involves lots of dreamy time arranging and rearranging those blocks.  Oh, how I enjoy playing with fabric.
Whew, I've just finished machine quilting, but don't be fooled.  This isn't going to be a quilt or a pillow or a bag or a table runner....
So just what am I making with all these crosses?

  1. Whatever it is, I like it. A lot. I like that it is for your sewing space too. When I find out what it is I might just make me one for my space too!
