Design Wall Monday


Nothing has changed on my design wall since Saturday. Nothing at all. I didn't even go into my sewing room on Sunday, not one time! It was very rainy and chilly here on Sunday so we watched tv all day long. We will not be doing that again anytime soon--my back is killing me this morning from sitting all day and moving around very little. So today will be doing things that involve movement.....like laundry, vacuuming, mopping--you know-the fun stuff.

But....I didn't just sit, I can't just sit and watch tv, I must work on something. The other day I finished an afghan and had lots of yarn leftover. Inspired by this afghan at Attic 24 (I love her stuff!!) I decided to make a throw. The picture shows it folded in half. After weighing a ball of yarn, doing a row and weighing it again, I have enough yarn left to do 2 more sets of rows and then I'll have more than enough blue to crochet a border around a few times. It's been fun working on this--it's so bright and happy.

Grab yourself a cuppa and head over to Judy L's and see her colorful design wall and then take a journey through Blogland and visit with others and their fabulous projects.

like the rainbow look of your crocheted piece. Sometimes rainy weather just makes you want to veg-out on the couch!

Judy love both of your projects today. I agree with Diane that the afghan does look like a rainbow. I love it. I'm also thrilled to see the tumbler quilt. I cut some pieces a while back but don't have enough for a quilt yet. Maybe I'll look into that during October. I have a FQ bundle that would make a great quilt using that die.

Loving your flannel GO project!

Love them both Judy! Bright colors are perfect on a dreary rainy day.
I spent a good portion of yesterday vegged out on the sofa with a book, so plan to spend today moving around too!

It's too nice out to be inside sewing!

Somehow I missed the string tumbler on Mary's blog. What a great idea! I'm always on the prowl for ideas to use my crumb and string blocks. Thanks for the link.

Those tumblers are going to be such a happy, soft, snuggly quilt. Thanks for the link for the string tumbler idea. It is impossible to have too many ideas for using strings.

I love to crochet and now that my tennis elbow is healed I have a granny square project or two to finish. Your tumblers are great. I love the colors.

But the tumblers look like they are celebrating the rain as well! Blues are beautiful in there!

Stopping by from Design Wall Monday... hi!

Both your projects look very color-coordinated. Did you do that on purpose? Very bright and cheerful!

You did get a rainbow in all of that rain. Sometimes it is good to just sit and do some pleasant hand work. But you are right. It does make you sore the next day.
