"Shopping" From a Box
Ahhh, the best kind of shopping - where everything is free! I went through the Traveling Stash Box to see what treasures I might want. Gotta have these cute cherries on the turquoise background!
And I love this white/yellow/red fat quarter with the cherries.
I'm going to have to take this funky, modern Christmas tree piece.
And maybe these green precut squares.
And though I don't like this forest green background, I DO love the vintage sewing supplies on this one. Of course, I'll have to replace everything I take with something from my own stash - I think I can manage that!
Different fabric today for the zig zag! This one is very Autumnal, isn't it? But when you squint it all blends together. No, not much contrast, but that's okay. This block will whisper.
I decide to turn the blocks on their side on the design wall to see how I liked them. I think I like it like this: horizontal zigs and zags.
Here was the view out my window this morning. You'll have to click on the picture to see what you're looking at. There are two geese just to the right of the tree. But look closely; see all those head poking up? It's the whole gang! (I know, the whole GAGGLE!)
