and then another.
Taking a closer look at those two I had to admit they were rather
and then did one in a multi-color with no dominant color, which would have been hard to squeeze into RSC format.
Up on the design wall they went!
You can my goosey temperature blocks on the left. Here's a close-up of the first week in February.
It was a goofy week, since we went from -10 to 62 in a 48 hour period. It's hard to know how to dress...
I'd hung up a piece of a black starry print as a possible sashing for my geese, but I'm having my doubts about it since the darker blues disappeared right into it. Picking a sashing color is going to be a problem, since I've pretty much got every color involved in my temp scale, including white and gray which could have been tapped for sashing if I'd thought ahead at all. (note to self: try to think ahead more often)
It did occur to me that I hadn't used pink (though I'm thinking of using hot pink to indicate temps over 100 degrees this summer) (hopefully there won't be much call for it) (because yikes!), so I grabbed the nearest hunk of pink (more of a coral actually) and hung it up behind the geese.
Eh. On the other hand, I don't actually have to make a decision on this for another 10+ months, so I've got lots of time to dither. (It has occurred to me that I could use the colors that are going to represent the high temp as sashing for the low temp months, gradually swapping them for low temp colors used for sashing in high temp months. Sounds complicated and grisly, so I'll be giving it more thought.) (The easiest way out would be to just skip sashing altogether, and that option is still in play.)
And you might have noticed that one big block trying to sneak into all the pictures. I've got one triangle star to show off.
I've spent scraps of time over the last year or so, cutting triangles and sticking them in a bin. The blocks are a bit nit-picky to sew, but I do love my fiddly bits. There's no plan and no hurry - I just am in love with this block so I'm going to sew some stars. Sort of a slow-motion squirrel, you might say.
