Seeing Stars

Well, I knew it was just a matter of time before I found another little fun project.  My friend, Sally, emailed me a picture of a little quilt made of scrappy, crooked stars.  We both loved it!  Yesterday we swapped scraps and this afternoon I started to play.

I chose a solid blue for my background and then had to decide WHAT scraps to use.  I decided to limit myself to yellow, orange, blue, aqua and green.  This will be a small project - six inch blocks.  If I ever find my tablet of graph paper, I'll get a lay-out figured out.
This is just a start - I have a lot more squares and triangles cut out!

What else have I been doing?  Hand quilting on one project, knitting a second spiral hat (better yarn and the correct needles), and reading (the last two were Gone Tomorrow by Lee Child and Rough Weather by Robert B. Parker).
