Happy December!

I'm up to my eyeballs in triangles!
I was thinking I'd make some sort of garland type thing to spruce up the rather un-Christmassy-looking upper half of my walls, and I think maybe I got a little carried away.
It started innocently enough, raiding the scrap bins for likely red and green triangle candidates. I accumulated a pile of them really quick-like, then I stitched them all face down on scraps of white. It was somewhere into hour two of tangled bobbins, broken threads, and cussing at the sewing machine that I thought maybe some sort of triangle estimate wouldn't have been such a terrible idea.
Dylan helped with the cutting-out part. Ok, so we raced. He won.

Then I turned all the pointy bastards inside out and ironed them flat.
It looks like a much more reasonable pile now.
I'll show you what I end up making with them when I figure out the next step.

In the meantime,
I hope you're all having a lovely December day,
void of tangled bobbins.


  1. The Pointy Bastards are going to be brilliant - assuming you don't continue crafting along the same inspired/cussing/What-Was-I-Thinking-Anyway? theme and, unlike someone I may know, YOU FINISH 'EM!

  2. Oh you've got me intrigued now, what will the ever inventive Jo do with these dang triangles?? Can't wait to see the delightful result of your cussin'! Deb

  3. BWAHAHAHAHA ... I thought I was the only one who called some of my creative endeavors bad names! Glad to know I'm in EXCELLENT company! And looking forward to seeing the finished triangles! HUGS!

  4. Woo! I'm so excited to see what they will be! Go... go... show me, quick! :)

  5. I am horrible at piecing triangles, but I love doing them. It is so fun to put different fabrics together and create something unique and beautiful.


  6. Great colours.. I thought you were making a lovely quilt! Well at least you can also use the triangles to hang up at birthdays or just for fun on your porch

  7. Can't wait to see them when they are finished! lol You are so crafty!

  8. No tangled threads for me to unweave but I bet that banner is going to look mighty festive when you're done!!

  9. We could do this...far better idea than my last one.

    I made a new bag for our library books to go in. I was a bit too enthused. TWO of my children can fit in the bag.


Thanks for stopping by!
