What is on my design wall? Well, it is spiderwebs again. All of the blocks are complete and a top should be ready quite soon.
So, how did I get back to this project? Well, I was ready to put my stars together during the last holiday weekend. All the squares were laid out on the living room floor all weekend and I went back and forth trying to decide on 3 possible layouts. I chose layout #3 and got the top about 25% together and hated it. So I told myself to give it a chance and kept going till it was 50% complete and -------I still hated it.
This really kinda bummed me out. My mom suggested that I put the whole project away for awhile and think about it. She thinks I should complete this layout. But, I think that since I put all the time and work into hand piecing the stars that I will spend some time with the seam ripper this weekend and go with my #1 layout.
So while I was stewing over the star quilt, I felt like getting some sewing done and went back to my scrap box of strips. I am quite happy that the spider webs made a big dent in the scrap box!
Also, I got some squishy mail this week from Marta at From Marta With Love. I won her 100 Day Hustle contest and received a handmade item. Look at what I got!
It is a linen wine bag and it is excellently constructed. This is so cute, it inspires me to upgrade my sewing skills.
