Stashbusting, Design Wall Monday, Crop Circles and other things

I’m behind again so time to play catch up.  Stashbusting report – no quilting last week at all so no fabric used and no fabric gained, zip nada nothing sewn at all. 

Of course you realize that means for Design Wall Monday – zip nada nothing new on the design wall either.

I have been busy play with EQ and you may wonder what Crop Circles (from the title of this post) have to do with anything.  No aliens have not landed outside my door (wait, I’d better go check!).

It is actually the name of a new Block of the Month I’ve spend most of my spare quilting time this week designing and tweaking in EQ6.  It will be presented next year to the online quilt group I belong to and I will also be posting the monthly instructions  at the same time on a page here on my blog.   There will be more info about it – yardage, etc. – posted closer to the New Year.  So if you’re interested in making it, be sure to check back.  It’s super simple applique shapes, with large shapes with easy curves (no points!)  — which would look equally good in needleturn, machine applique (satin stitch or buttonhole) or even raw edge applique.  So here’s a look at what it looks like……. introducing Crop Circles. 🙂

I have been busy knitting.  Finished off the mates for two pairs of socks! and it isn’t even officially Socktoberfest yet but the camera is currently charging so can show a photo yet.  I’ve started on a new sock and have started over twice simply because I seem to have been counting impaired when I started.   But I think I’ve got it now!
