I'm headed out to a stitching retreat later today through the weekend. I haven't packed yet, but I have a mental list of things to take, including a bunch of projects to work on, and maybe a change or two of clothes. That'll be the 'calm' from my headline.
Seems like this week has been a storm of activity finalizing some of the August FLOCK shipment and beginning the preparation for the September shipment (September!! My goodness!)
All that activity left little time for much else! Except, maybe for a tiny bit of progress on the scrappy split-geese place mat I have been working on.
As a reminder, this small project was inspired by one element in one block in the on-again-off-again block-making collection from the book Nearly Insane by Liz Lois.
As shown on the right, I've got a few rows of split geese at various stages.
With two vertical rows complete, I'm now asking myself if it would it be better if the rows were arranged all the same, dark to light (bottom to top) or. . . .
. . . Alternating. Dark to light, then light to dark, etc.
I think I kinda like the second variation. But I need a few more strips.
So-o-o-o, we're not done with this one yet!
Skip the storm and enjoy the calm!
