I found another pentagon! Next time you enjoy a handful of blueberries, see how many pentagons you can find. Hint: they’re hidden in the five-pointed star. They’re not all this perfectly formed. I kind of feel badly that I ate it.
Thank you for the wonderful comments after my last post. So many of you wrote in and shared that you had been making them for years. I haven’t seen any pictures yet (hint, hint) but when I do I’ll add them to the original mention.
If you enjoyed my “Have A Ball!” pattern and want more patchwork balls, there are quite a few books you might want to add to your “round and rolling” library.
Several of you mentioned Jinny Beyer’s Patchwork Puzzle Balls.
There’s also Japanese Kimekomi: Fast, Fun, and Fabulous Fabric Handballs! by Barbara B. Suess
And here I thought Scooter was ball crazy!
I’ve been dyeing up a storm. The last few sessions I felt like I was inside a snow globe! The cottonwood trees let loose their seeds and the air was thick with white fuzz.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a cottonwood tree, wouldn’t know one if it bit me, but the summer snow is coming from somewhere! The wet clotheslines were like magnets. Since I’m not keen on picking off hundreds of them one by one, I’ve been working on a little machine that might do the trick. More on that next time.
Thanks for joining me today,
