You can't really get much depth of field in this photo - it shows my massive housekeeping result for today (chuckle) - I washed an enormous number of plastic 'leftover' bowls and piled them up to dry. Tomorrow I will go through them and sort out what there are lids to fit, which ones are sturdiest, and bundle up the rest to give away. Not really sure why I'm doing this except that they tend to takeover the world if they aren't coralled once in a while. LOL! There's only so much space I want to use in my kitchen cabinets for these things - we almost never have or even eat leftovers. Grin.
Most of the day today I worked on knitting my Wingspan along with some other hand things. I made my tiny surprise pouch which I will share after I know the givee has received it. :)
I found this in my hand sewing tool pouch when I was searching for a decent needle. Some years ago now a woman came into my shop asking me to buy (wholesale) a set of really nicely made (by her) key fobs. I bought every one she had and they sold in a flash. I gave several family members one and I found my Mom's when I was cleaning out her house. Obviously I stuck it into my tool pouch for safe keeping.
This fob was made with red, white and blue fabrics in the classic Log Cabin design - the back print was a pretty navy blue with flowers. Look at what colors there are now - my Mom clearly used this _a lot_ and it has sun faded
Even allowing for color differences between monitors and such, I think you can see that these prints are no longer red, white or blue. :) Remember that quilting-weight fabrics are only 'certified' by the manufacturers for 20 hours (cumulative!) of sunlight before fading! :)
The weather was kind of gloomy today with at least a partial cloud cover for most of the day. I once read on the Net about a quilt maker who created a block every day (something small like 3"x5" I think) that recorded the color of the sky that day. I'm afraid my piece, if I did one here in MD, would be heavily gray for most of the winter. :P I've also read about knitters who create a sky piece each day for a year to make an afghan of the local weather. Don't know why that idea appeals to me but it does. :)
