Squares, triangles, squares, triangles

I searched high and low earlier in the week for white shirts and only managed to find two, one completely plain,and one a dress shirt with lots of tiny pleats in a panel on the front.  So yesterday, while I was waiting for another boiler man to come and finish off the job the first boiler man couldn't do,  I used my time cutting them up.  By the time he was done I had a nice little pile of blue squares and matching white squares, ready to be turned into triangles.

A bit of application this morning and I now have an equally pleasing, but rather more useful, pile of triangles.

Onward and upward.

The pile looks so lovely. I’m glad you found a few shirts to work with.

I used all my white shirts, too. Funny, I thought there were more.
Lovely shades of blue.

That's a good feeling to get something done.
Progress is being made!

Isn't it funny how we can run out of such a simple color! I admire your dedication to sticking with recyled. It's definitely going to take extra effort on your part though!

A very lovely pile of blocks. Hopefully you will find a few more white shirts soon!

I have no doubt that you'll resolve the fabric problem somehow. I am amazed by how you do it, but I've been around long enough to expect that it's going to happen. Ha! (I just dated myself as a follower.) That's a pretty stack of blue squares. I'll bet you're petting, uhm working with, them right now.
