[workinprogress]

A new week, and another quilt is already well under way.


Fabrics have been selected and most of the pieces have been cut, although arranging, re-arranging and editing is yet to be undertaken.   I know you will again recognize many of these prints.


Blue and green  ...  and they say blue and green should never be seen?


It so also happens that I've cast on a new knitting project this week with the same great colors, and also with a Christmas deadline. (I finished the Buttonwillow Shawl earlier in the week and it is now blocking! Pictures soon).


Yes, I am pushed for time in a big way, but I'm enjoying every single moment.

Have a wonderful week,
Rita

  7. I've always heard the rhyme as blue and green should not be seen without a colour in between.. and your fabric stash has plenty of other colours in between, but I'm not sure about the knitting LOL

    Actually I love blue and green together, provided they are the right shades.

  8. Hmm....I always heard it as "Red and green should never be seen, except in the streets of Aberdeen."
    Blue and green looks gorgeous!

  11. I keep retuturning to blue and green as my favorite colors. They are the 2 colors I used in my oldest son's room some 30 years ago. It is such a pretty combination, something about forest and sea.
