Frigid, Windy day.
Sub-zero, shockingly cold.
Takes my breath away.

A trip to the library allowed me to check out the book Quilting Modern by Jacquie Gering and Katie Pederson.
I enjoy the work that both of these talented women produce, and I'm a fan of the whole modern movement.
While I have many projects on the wall (and the floor, and in bins and drawers) I wanted to play around with something different without making a huge commitment to a full size project.
So I got out my trusty black and white fabrics and decided to try out the slice and insert technique. It's not a technique that is totally new to me, but the book inspired me to Just Do It and so I did.
I like the way the un-quilted areas stand out. I think it has a lot of possibilities.
I'm going to get this bound when I find the right fabric…I'm sure a hunt through the stash will turn something up.
I have another new project to share…it's not that new to me but it will be new to you.
However…I have a little work to do on other things before I will be able to share.

But it's too damn cold outside!
I'm on Day 2 of a 5 day Yahoo dishcloth KAL…..
I love working on these…Just a few rows of knitting each day for 5 days, wondering all the while what the final outcome will be.
I made myself a new rice bag. I zap it in the microwave for 2 minutes to help sooth my sore muscles from snow shoveling and marathon sewing……
And I have 27 Scrappy Trips blocks sewn…and a few waiting to be sewn together…..
So that's all I have to share right now……Stay warm. Stay Crafty!
