Piecing is going along swimmingly, since my strips are already precut, and I don't have to be careful about choosing what goes with what. I did try and make a strong contrast between the first and last fabrics and that made the diagonals stand out more. But now that I have seen the Flickr Scrappy Trip Along group's work, I certainly am doing the most traditional of settings, so far. What's nice is that this thing can grow up, down, or sideways, without missing a beat! I've seen some very nice ones with solids too. O boy!
I doubt that I'll be running short of strips anytime soon, and haven't even considered breaking into my jelly rolls yet.
We began watching Netflix's new version of House of Cards last night and are set for the weekend's viewing. So good. Dave says, "I like it" and "This puts West Wing to shame". Well it is entirely different than West Wing, that's for sure. I did binge-watch the British version in preparation for the new American production and since they are both streaming, it is great winter TV. I do believe we will pass on the Superbowl in favor of this tour de force. Five stars.
And now your daily Dawgs...
