Design Wall Monday
I've made very little progress on the Depression Block. I don't mind sewing the triangles together, but trimming them on a low table is a pain in the neck. Literally. So I dug out a UFO that I had put away quite a while ago. I'm pretty sure I was going to make a twin size out of it, but after a few people on an online group told me it was too blah (not those words exactly), I put it away. I could make it into a rather large baby quilt, or I could continue with my original plan. I guess I'm rather blah myself because I still like the colors as they are.
On the subject of the makeover contest, I still haven't found an item to makeover. I've been to the thrift store a couple of times (the rules are that we have to buy an item during the week for no more than $1 and have it done by Thursday) but I am overcome with a lack of inspiration when I am there. I also think some people must have cheaper thrift stores than I do. On Saturday I only found one item less than a dollar. It was a caster wheel for 50¢, but for the life of me I couldn't think of anything to do with it.
If you are considering entering my challenge, you don't have to run out to buy something for $1. You can also use anything laying around the house or something you get free.
