I tend to be very productive at the start of a new year, so I try to rotate through big colors to start the year. This year is pink. It must be having two girls, but my pink bin is always overflowing. They are practically grown, so I'm not sure I should blame them -- maybe I just like pink. I made a few more shooflies and stars last night and tried to polish off the last few crumbs bits. I am squaring these up to 4 inches right now and searching for inspiration. I thought about alternating between black and white framing squares. Then I thought about alternating diagonal and straight set blocks. Then I saw some cute black framed blocks sashed with white and bright solid cornerstones. Maybe just white with black cornerstones? They definitely need some sort of dividers, because the bulk is just a bit much, but I haven't settled yet on what they will become. For now it is nice to not have so many random bits hanging around taking up space. I was planning on cutting some more green 1.5 inch strips to make Garden Lattice alternate blocks, but I could not find my ruler yesterday. Anna finally sat down for an evening snack and found it hiding under her chair. On the bright side though, I tidied everything up as I searched madly for that darned ruler for the last two days. With all the kids home I am sewing in the family room and can't leave everything strewn allover anymore.
