Sewing the Bump

I can't believe it's been a week since I blogged. Now that the nice weather is here, we take advantage and head to the cottage and we've been there a couple of times in the past week. But alas, it's drizzly today, so I'm back at the computer.

Later today is going to be a fun day. Some friends and I are going to sew the Bump, that you might have seen in an earlier post. By cutting strips of contrasting colors, you get the illusion of a stretched out bump in the center. Do you see it? We're just sewing a small version to get the hang of it. If we like doing it, then we can make a bigger one which I probably will.

This is a picture of one by Gerta DeVries, who inspired us by giving a Math Lecture at UNB in June.

I'll so you my mini sample tomorrow.
