Not a great photo...

...but a photo of greatness.  ;)

Just a quick shot of the progress on Black Widow 1, thus far.  Yes, "Black Widow 1" - because I feel a series coming on.

Sometimes, my favorite color sandbox (primaries) inspires me to keep going....and I can see all sorts of potential in this combination between color and quilt block.

More soon. :)

How are your projects coming along?

And then...

...I fell smack dab into the middle of a scripty job for the next two weeks.

BUT, I am back at it with a vengeance and making headweigh (yes, that's THE correct way to write that phrase - the more accepted modern version is tosh!).  Current photos tonight or tomorrow morning.

Hello, again!

Let the cutting begin!

Woo hoo!  Everything is ironed and ready for the rotary work.

With any luck I'll be assembling a few patches by nightfall, and will have some border area attached either Tuesday evening or sometime on Wednesday!

What have I been up to? I have a heap 'o' ironing to accomplish before I can get to cutting the strips of blacks I have decided to incorporate into the new Spider String Quilt.

WHA????? (ala Craig Ferguson)

I know, I know. I thought I wasn't going to begin anything new until I had knocked off a few more unfinished objects from the considerable list, either - it is.

I had fooled myself into believing I could have this phantom project in my periphery, giving it a little attention "here and there"; pulling it out once in a while, as time permitted and fabric scraps dictated. [sigh]

Ah well.
At any rate, I now have a lot of ironing to do, as a good deal of yesterday was spent scouring my stash for appropriate black material and then rinsing it out to be sure of their colorfastness ( - put a few more patches and squares together, too). I am determined to purchase nothing new for this project. 

Well, OK. 

I can see where maybe that's sort of unrealistic.  There will be a need for backing material when the time comes, but I am not there, yet, so there's time.  LOTS of time.

So tell me, what have YOU been up to?
