working hard or hardly working?

Depends on what day it is. It's so hot and humid in the studio that I've been working/puttering/experimenting at home.  No sign of cooling down for the rest of the week.

I did finally finish the bizarro string quilt I was working on as a baby gift. When I finally took a picture of it, I realized that "wonky" didn't begin to describe this rather psychedelic quilt.  I hope the baby will not have any bad effects from playing on it.
Finishing that quilt has freed me up to play a bit with some ideas floating around in
my head.  They haven't quite jelled - so I'm at the beginning of a "what if?" period.  Here's what is on my sewing room bulletin board this morning: bits of unrelated, previously started and new experiments.
Will any of these turn into something besides bits and pieces?  Only time will tell.  I'm working on it.

The baby will probably be fascinated with all the color and patterns! Maybe even grow up to be an artist who uses bright color in his or her work! As for your "what if" period, I took one look at that strip piece in the lower left part of the picture, and I know what I want to work on very soon using up yet more of my scraps. Thanks for the inspiration! Sure hope it cools off for you soon...

Well, if that baby has any trouble with that quilt, let me know and I'll be happy to send you my address! I think it is a terrific quilt!

not bizarro at all, but wonderfully engaging! if you have a moment, could you post pix at String Thing Along as well? we all need a bit of inspiration over there.
