Covid-19 madness Knitting with teabag strings

I was given a pre rolled ball of strings and I got out my 4.5 mm needles. Cast on 40 sts and stated knitting.

I received a package of strings in the mail... 

Taking the tags off I am left with different lengths of strings. The more stained the better.

I have a little ball. As you can see it's not very big. This will take some time. I only drink 1 cup of tea a day so I collect them from anyone who is willing to save them for me.

I need between 4 - 6,000 strings... OMG... what was I thinking.

This is where I am at now.
I need more strings

Playing around with blogger, posts and a little bit of sewing...

Working out blogger. I'm not sure how to do this really. This attempt is just doing a new post and inserting the photos. I don't know what will happen when I delete the photos from my photo album. Once they are on my blog I take the photos off my iPad to free up space. Doing it this way used to delete them from my blog as well. Let's see what happens now.

I usually email my photos one at a time to my blog and then edit them. That's how I got the photo to stay visible and I easily did my posts.
Now, if I email them and they are a draft I cannot work out how to edit, type a message, see the photo or even preview it. On my iPad the only thing that shows when I preview is half my header photo. Chooky has offered to help via a call so if I get frustrated I'll be taking her up on the offer. Until then I'll try a few things.

So if you don't see me for a while know I am reading your blogs but not successful with mine.

Please keep safe everyone. 

I bought this beautiful pack of Japanese fabric squares when I was on my sewing cruise many years ago. As we all do, I didn't want to cut into them as they are sew pretty. But the time has come and I am going to be brave.

Working out what to do to showcase this fabric.

Cutting and sewing back together again

I am trying these little blocks out for a bit of fun. I'm not sure what will I will end up doing with them. I just wanted to try a pattern out.
