Rainy Days and Mondays
On this dark rainy Monday, since I didn't have to go to work, I thought it would be a perfect day to sew. There is almost no place as cheering to me on a dark rainy day, as my sewing room. And I have a very cheerful project too.
This is the beginnings of a new quilt for my grandson J. He is 7 and is very interested in science and all things scientific. He has a particular fascination with the periodic table. So when I saw this collection, Science Fair from Robert Kaufman, I knew it was "the one".
Here is the first block. See what I mean? Perfect. The star points are all made with shades of Crosshatch Sketch by Timeless Treasures. I comes in a wealth of colors and goes so well everything.
Here is the second block. I love all the beakers and test tubes. More shades of Crosshatch Sketch. I am sure this is going to be such a fun quilt to make and I just know J will love it.
And for me, a bit of crocheted comfort. Working on a blanket made with Blue Sky cotton yarn. It is so soft. So how about you? What do you do on a rainy Monday?
