December is when I start to seriously consider options for next years daily stitching, so far I have ideas but nothing is taking form. This is not unusual it has happened before, but this year I've gotten a bit off track.
One of my rules for daily stitching is that it has to incorporate stuff I already have, which of course leads me to digging through a lot of stuff. On Sunday I pulled out my container of vintage mens ties. I used to make vests and pillows for sale using these and had put aside some that I really liked to make something for myself. That was about twenty years ago and I still haven't used them. Well, I'm now using them but not in daily stitching project. Here is the pile .
I'm actually doing paper piecing and making a wall hanging. There will be 48 three inch squares of log cabin blocks. So far they are taking about 45 minutes per block and I have six done. I've got a drawing on paper as my guide and this is what the ones that are pieced look like.
Another idea was to use the four inch squares that I showed a couple of months ago that had been indigo dipped. I sewed them end to end and now have a strip nine feet long.
It got rolled up and stuck in a drawer, so that's two ideas down and a few more to go, but I will have something to start on Jan 1.
