Little Triangles

Happy New Year dear friends!

One day I took my scrap boxes and started to separate…

Sadly the result was very poor. The box was full, but when sorted out, decent size scraps were so less. Most were crumbs and chips…but some of them started to speak to me…

Little triangles screamed: We may be small but we can do it! Take your white scraps and you’ll see!

So I did, and started to make the puzzle.

I was happy to find an important project, because these last days I couldn’t start anything. I have so many ideas going on in my mind but when I thought to start, they seemed to be purposeless.

These, ‘useless’ littlest chips pushed me to start and I hope they lead me to improvising new year. This time I trim with scissors.

I have made extra design board. It’s a small board which I covered with piece of fleece. It can be on my sewing table, lean against the wall or I may hang it on the wall. If you don’t have space for design wall you can still make small design board. Use any board, wood or even carton. Or tape a piece of fleece or wadding on the door. Try, it makes big difference to see your design on the wall/board and not on the table.

Some of these little blocks are now on the board and some on the table…and there are still many little triangles waiting for white scraps.

Jayne at ‘Twiggy and Opal’ inspired me finally to start something with the littlest.  I admire her beautiful, unique work and fun writing. Thank you Jayne! I have also an other project going on, where I used idea from Jayne’s blocks…those half retangle blocks.

‘Scandic Scene’ is again on the design wall and in my thoughts. I have some ideas how to continue and hope to finish soon this quilt top to start the quilting.

Time to say Farewell 2015 and Welcome 2016! I think this is a good moment to move to a new address and to start a new chapter in ‘Nero’s Post and Patch: http://www.nerospostbox.wordpress.com. I was happy to see in the stats that many old posts are visited often again so I’m sure we shall meet now and then also here in my ‘old’ blog.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! 

TEJE, NERO, HANNA, NELLI
