Remember Scrapbag Explosion, my fun little 2" squares playtime guy? Well, he was in queue to be sandwiched and pinbasted when he started talking to me. "Hey," he says, "I'm not done. Give me more!!!!" Not being one to ignore talking quilts, I drug out the little plastic drawers full of 2" squares and started playing around on the design wall. I'm not sure how these new borders will eventually end up, but it did give me an excuse to do that mindless chain-piecing that I am so fond of!!!! Of course, there is one small problem. I have just a bitty-bitty amount of the tan solid left in my stash. This may entail a shopping trip.....
For a walk down memory lane, go on over to Knot Garden's blog and look at her wonderful hollyhock photo! Made me remember making hollyhock dolls with a friend's two darling girls about 25 years ago. I did a little googling to see if I could remember how we did that. Thank you, Denver Channel! The directions are here for making these adorable dollies:
Aren't these fun?
Kansas City is getting some much needed rain today. I was getting tired already of the hose-dragging routine. And I'm sure the tomatoes will enjoy it.
