I got smart and decided to do something that counted toward a project I have sporadically worked on for about 4 years now. They are 6.5 inch scrap churn dash blocks. I take the box out when I have nothing to do, or too much to do, and work on a couple. Then I put it away again. Some people can't understand this peculiar habit, but it is like a calming session in a hectic life. I need it.
Today I thought how I don't really have a lot of mauve in my stash. It seems that I have a very large amount of fabric, just not ever the one I need for a particular project. Hence, I have no mauve.
This is the closest I could come to mauve. Close, but not spot on.
And here are my 4 new churn dashes to add to my growing stack of them.
I'd say that counts close to mauve! it's an odd color! odd... I love odd color! I also love your churn dashes... A great way to bring your project back into the light! ;-)
I love your churn dash project. These blocks will be great.
Ongoing projects are the best! Your version of mauve fits into the range. I love that everyone is joining in this challenge....so many shades, so many ideas!
You are not alone! I have a black bag with two ongoing projects. Periodically when I don't want a BIG project or the big project is not going well I haul out the black bag and sew a couple of blocks. SOMEDAY they will become a quilt!
i totally get your project.. hope the love-er-ly mauve plays well with the rest! be sure to listen to my interview with Victoria today on my radio show! or grab the recording when it's done
