that you can not be "rushed" and "creative" at the same time.
For the last 3 days I've been taken stolen moments (while he's asleep) to cut 3.5" squares for a pillow I want to make for my cousin's dorm room. I have a general idea of what I want it to look like, but yesterday I laid out my squares and thought, wtf? The fabrics are not going together the way I had hoped at all. So now (that george is napping again) i was debating between trying to figure it out or blogging about it. Blogging won out.
One option was to alternate lights and darks, but i have a lot of mediums in there too.
Or, I could alternate with a plain fabric.
I briefly toyed with the idea of sashing it all in a solid, but threw that idea out the window because I barely have time to get the squares cut and pieced, I can't possibly double my seams and cutting by adding 1" sashing..agh, i don't know. It will come together, but when?
