In case you missed my subtle hints, the color for February will be red. I put away all my blue this afternoon and scrounged around for new scraps. I was surprised at how much I came up with. I thought red was a light color for me. Ideas are percolating, but I'm seeing some little nine patches with the 1.5 inch strips and maybe a nice checkerboard with the 2 inch strips. I don't think red has quite the same range as blue since I've pulled all the pink for another month. I wonder why light blue is still blue but light red is considered to be another color? I'll need an new idea for the 2.5 inch strips, but I'm thinking that the 3.5 inch strips want to be kaleidoscope blocks. There will be some crumb hearts if I can make it work -- maybe raw edge or maybe reverse applique?
Anna came home from school sick today, so I'm getting some sub plans ready just in case she hasn't perked up by morning. The kids all have a special talent for getting sick only when Dad is out of town. I wonder how they manage that?
