Can you believe it? I worked on another scrappy project, albeit a little one, and the scrap bins levels don’t look any different…. Well to be fair it wasn’t a very big project. I decided yesterday that I would work on a Journal Keeper. The approx. finished size is 11” X 20”. Every bit of fabric came from the scrap bins; even the wadding was a scrap. Two of the fabrics were leftover from previous Japanese Folded Projects, the red was leftover backing fabric and I can’t remember where the mottled dark blue lining came from. Once again this was a very easy project using rectangle shaped patches of scrap fabric and embellished with Prairie Points. The quilting was easy peasy and done with the walking foot. Simple useful project = sense of accomplishment. So now it’s your turn to try to Use up Your Scraps.
There wasn’t any sunshine again today so still now better photo of my Lovely Logs Quilt. Perhaps tomorrow…… Speaking of tomorrow, my next scrappy project will probably be a new patchwork door banner. Next month is Valentine’s Day so I think I will include hearts in my new scrappy door banner. I’m hoping to piece a light coloured background, perhaps a primitive wonky log cabin block and then just add applique hearts and lots of Freemotion Quilting. We’ll see what happens when tomorrow comes.
Today wasn’t very bright at all. In fact it was downright dark. And although I’m not a sun worshipper I was hoping for a little brightness. I long for Beach Hut days. Time flies, I guess I should keep myself busy and spring will be here in no time at all. Mind you the days seem to be getting longer now. Thank goodness.
Well I guess that was my report for today. I look forward to tomorrow when I hope to start working on my next scrappy project. I’ve got so many ideas of things I would like to make. Do you have a scrappy project on the go yet? I think my notebook will come out this evening to record the next few ideas. And the EQ7 software will be flashed up to work out a few more simple manageable scrappy blocks. There aren’t enough hours in one day to get everything done; not to mention the energy……
Now before I go, I must tell you that my Poinsettia Plant is still going strong. I’m not sure what the trick is to keeping them going but I know that I didn’t water it too often and I kept it out of any draughts and out of direct sunlight. I’m not sure if that’s what kept it going this long or if I was just lucky!
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will be recording a few ideas and also doing a little more work on the Double Wedding Ring Quilt. Whatever you may be doing, I hope you’re working on something useful. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching. ♥ ♥
