Snowy Monday Design Wall

Today my design wall is a hodge podge of stuff.  The sparkly chickens are still there, the couple of blocks that I started for my piecing club and those painted fish occupy the lower portions.  Off to the right is an unfinished piece inspired by my cyber-friend Judi at Approachable Art.  It includes regular hand-dyes (by me) and some of my snow-dyes.  As I sew the strips together, I have been adding more strips.  They're quite narrow -- one to two inches wide, so they finish out at 1/2 to 1 inch.  I like the edges  staggered, so I'm going to have to figure out how to finish them without losing that effect.  If you would like to see what is going on on other people's design walls, click here.

Looks better than my wall. I don't have anything up, not really true, just too lazy to take a picture. I am busy getting those CQ's done. Hoping to have them done today and out the door tomorrow!

I just finished shoveling the drive and walk. Where is a DH when you need one?

I just ventured over the Approachable Art which took me to Approachable Photos... may have to steal the idea of a blog just for nature photos... naw I'll keep them where I can see them.

Love the chickens. Make me think of a great quilter that also loved chickens. Had loads of chicken stories to go with her chicken quilts. She passed away a few years ago from a motorcycle accident. Thanks for reminding me of her. You brought a smile to my face!

I like those bright strips on the right- and you dyed them yourself?? Impressive.
