Or... just place two strings in a container, close the cover and leave them overnight!
Meanwhile I've been working on the 2-1/2 x 8-1/2 paper foundation string blocks that Bonnie Hunter is doing on Quilt Cam, they go together so fast it's like eating peanuts! So far I've finished around 2 dozen or so, and it's such a fun mix of fabrics...Christmas prints, puppy dogs, music, stars, words, you name it, it's all in there.
That's a great looking group, isn't it? There's no deadline for getting them finished and I don't know how I'll use them yet but I know I WILL use them! Piecing strings and scraps is such an easy way to let your fingers play with fabric while your mind wanders here and there, watching TV or listening to a book. Sometimes when I'm working with strings I'm reminded of one of those cook books "101 Ways to Cook Hamburger" ... there's gotta be at least 1,001 ways to use strings!
How do you use strings, leave me a comment and let me know. Come on admit it - everybody at one time or other has pieced strings together! ;o)
Well, that's it for now, have a great Tuesday, stay cool, sew forth and sew on til later!
