I have bookmarked so many neat block patterns I've wanted to try. Now's my chance to try a few of them out. The first pillow will consist of two string patterns: double diagonal and spiderweb. These two will probably exhaust what's left of my scrappy strings. I have been loving these project, but I need to do some non-scrappy projects!
I'm not as far with the spiderweb blocks. Just blue edges for now - I'm not sure what I wanted to do for the rest of the colors. I waited until the other blocks were complete before filling out these, so I could gauge what colors I have left. I'm hoping to wrap up the first pillow this weekend and start on a second one next week.
I thoroughly cleaned out my sewing machine a couple of weeks ago and it's running a bit better. However, it still grinds more than it should. It stitches beautifully, but the noise makes me nervous. I'm hoping to finish up my next few projects before I face losing it for a few weeks while it gets serviced.
