Two more stars

Three things to be happy about:
(1) new uses for old things
(2) fall catalogs arriving
(3) JoAnn's 50% off coupons

I made more string blocks for my stars, here's two more laid out on my design floor:

They play well together with the first block, don't they?  I'm thinking of separating them with neutral blocks rather than smack together, have to work on that because the blocks are set in a zig zag pattern.  Might be a bit tricky.

The phrase "balance the colors" flew through my mind for about 30 seconds... I think they'll pretty much balance themselves if I just put the blocks together!  I might want to avoid using yellow as the last piece on the points though, shows up as a light.

I'm scheduled for a colonoscopy tomorrow (Tuesday) so today is my prep day, yuck.  I'll have to keep busy so I won't think I'm hungry, just liquids all day doesn't sound too appetizing! Well maybe ... popsicles, jello, coffee, tea, Italian ices... I can swing it!

Have a great day, sew forth and sew on til later!


  1. Prep day? Yuck is right. Remember nothing red or orange or purple (anything with red dye in it)
    The stars look good.

  2. Those stars are beautiful! Good luck with the testing.

  3. I love the way your stars are turning out. I need to follow your lead. Good luck tomorrow.

  4. Those stars are gorgeous. Good luck with colonoscopy.

  5. Relax and enjoy the zone. Love the stars you made with the scraps.

  6. These are great! So simple but they look stunning when put together.
