It’s nice to ease into some sort of regular programming these days.  What better way that to showcase a work in progress for WIP Wednesday.

We’ve had a few scary trips to the ER with the little one being ill this September.  It’s always harder when your kids are sick.

But she’s fine now and almost completely recovered!  She’s a bubbly little thing and it was sad to see her so sick and weak.  But that’s in the past and she’s back to her old self now 🙂

Our September calendar is covered in scribbles and notes, but that’s how everyone’s back-to-school schedule is, right?  Right?!  I’ve knit a total of 2 rounds on my sock this month, hah!  So, in the evenings, when I have a few precious moments I’ve been sitting with my glue pen sticking things!  These paper pieced diamonds are just the ticket.

I dug out my scraps and cut them about 1/4 inch larger than my diamond paper template on all sides. I’m thinking I’ll use these low volume prints for the center.

Won’t be too long if I keep this sticky situation going.  I’m hoping I’ll have enough diamonds to turn this into a sunburst (starburst??) pattern and make a mini quilt.  The double whammy with this project has been bustin’ them scraps in the process.

I’ve needed something enjoyable and mindless like this to offset the busy days.  I think I’ll keep that sock close by too 🙂

    “Enjoyable and mindless” yes, that describes glue-basting and most of the EPP process. Just right for those times when your hands want to be busy while your mind ponders issues gently or relaxes. Pleased your youngest is feeling better now Preeti. 🙂
