Moving It Forward

Monday's here and it's time to share what we've been moving forward in our sewing rooms.

I had a little excitement while pulling these scraps. I was sitting happily on the ground with my scrap bin and a laundry basket. (My preferred container when sorting scraps.) When one of my backing bins slipped from it's place under my cutting table and slid onto my foot pedal for my sewing machine. My machine was screaming. Trying to unfold myself and get up to stop the chaos I'm sure was quite a sight. My son came running afraid I had hurt myself. Apparently I had joined my machine in the screaming.  
 Finally I was able to dislodge the bin and all order was restored. Well, as much order as can be expected in my sewing room. And I went back to sorting my scraps.  These blocks were my original idea for these scraps.
 But I found I had larger light pieces and smaller dark pieces while cutting into my scraps. So I thought I would just reverse the darks and lights
 But I'm not sure I'm thrilled with the snowball style dark block. I might have to play with it for a while once I get a few more blocks made. I'm not sewing the darker ones together yet, so I can do a little more experimenting.
Now it's your turn to share your progress. I'm looking forward to seeing what you've been up to.
