It's been a long time since I participated in WOYWW! And I'm a bit late this morning... So what's on my workspace this week? A whole box of t-shirts (with a wet, blind kitten on top - it was Stevie's bath day), a stack of books about quilting, my ott light, and just some odds and ends. I've been researching a quilting project. I have about 22 of my late grandfather's flannel shirts (right now they are spread out on my guest bedroom bed). I first wanted to make wedding presents for the 2 cousins getting married this fall....then I thought.. but what about my parents, 3 uncles, and 7 cousins...who all loved my grandpa. Is there a way to make something from 22 shirts for 12 different families (including mine)? Maybe a 2 quilt block wall hanging for each one. Then I started thinking...there's no way I can get them finished in time for even the weddings...and I recruited help from an aunt. She came up with the idea of making it a collaborative project between all the women in my family. Awesome! So in a couple of weeks we'll have a fantasy shirt draft (the women's counterpart to my family's fantasy football draft).
I'd love ideas on what to do with my grandpa's shirts (and my t-shirts too)! Maybe once Operation Papa Shirt Project gets moving I'll share some pictures from it!
Peace and Love, y'all!
