Sashing with Words

Three things to be happy about:
(1) good memories
(2) inventing a better word
(3) getting on with it

I've had two no-sew days, now I'm back in the saddle!

I thought I'd take some of the granny square blocks and add sashing just to see what I could see...

I already know I'm using white sashing to make the blocks pop!, and I found a piece of white-on-white in my stash that I've had awhile.

Can you read the words?  

Probably not, but they're the words to A Visit from St. Nicholas, by Clement C. Moore.

As I chose this fabric I was wondering if it would "clash" with the other white I've been using for the background fabric...

Well, it sorta does, but after thinking about it for about 10 seconds I figured if I use it only in the sashing it shouldn't matter.  Not to me anyway!

Six blocks are sashed and laid out, I really could see the difference, even from the distance I took the photo from.

But as I said earlier, that not a problem - onward and upward!

On another front, part of my "no-sew" time was spent exploring the Horseshoe casino in Baltimore with my friend Felicia (also known as the Slow Quilter).

We both agreed it was a monumental waste of time!  We only went because they gave me free money to play with, but I can honestly say I've gotten the Horseshoe casino out of my system and won't have to go back.  Too many people lounging around in there, if you know what I mean.

That's it for now, sew forth and sew on til later...
