The last couple of nights, I have been busy string piecing. I use telephone book pages as my foundation (suggested by Bonnie Hunter in her book String Fling). It is difficult to find hardcopy telephone books. To look up a telephone number, most people will just do a google search. Well, after much hunting, I found 2 old copies of telephone books. Tore out the pages.
Took out my scraps of strings. I used to trash these but managed to salvage some from the last few projects I made. I should sort them out into different colours…
I started sewing the strings onto my foundation paper.
After sewing the strings, I trimmed the block down to squares.
I calculated that I need 48 of these blocks.
Then I cut the blocks diagonally
I will be working on this for quite a while. If I sew 2 of these blocks each night, I will get 48 blocks in 24 nights! Press on!
