Back to blogging and Scrap Basket Project

Good Morning!

It has been along road to recovering from 2 upper respiratory infections, 2 rounds of antibiotics and  FINALLY I am feeling beter and actually have some energy to sew.  I had seen The Scrap Basket project over at Kims Big Quilting Adventure - see the button on the side and click on over to check it out.  She is working on Scrap blocks every Sunday --  but you can work on them anytime and just post to her Mr Linky on Saturday -- I made these 2 yesterday and hope to make some more today.  I used muslin as my backing fabric and just went thru my scrap bin and sewed away.  Not sure how I will put them together, as I have a scarp bin of many colors but I will see as time goes on -- hoping to make a big dent in the scrap basket. 

The weather has been less than spring like around here -- think that is why everyone is taking super long to get over the bugs that have been going around -- last weekend - we had snow in APRIL!  Here is a picture of Poochie - even she has a look on her face like What is this??  It was warm last week??

This weekend it is in the 40's and the sun is out - so it sure seems alot nicer. 


I better get the laundry done today and get into my sewing room!

Happy Stitches!

Glad you are feeling better. Your scrappy blocks look great.

Hi Dorthy. I am glad you are feeling better. The weather has been so crazy, it is hard to know what will be next. I live in the South and it had been in the 70's and 80's for a while. But now it is very cold and we had to cut our heat back on.
I really like your scrappy blocks. I have a lot of strings ready to start mine, but I have so many projects that I want to do, it is hard to get everything done.After seeing yours, I am more inspired to start working on mine. Thank you for sharing yours. Hope you have a great day!

Those scrappy blocks look great! Good luck with reducing your scrap basket... mine never seems to go down much.

Great blocks - did you just sew them together and trim them down?

40's here too, the sun is shining but it is deceiving, it's freezing outside. We have had the awful yucky cold/upper respiratory infections here too. Lots of 103 degree fevers and coughing. Oh it's awful. Looking forward to warm weather!

Great string blocks--reminds me that I need to get back to working on mine.

I love your string blocks! They definitely look like the start of a very beautiful project! I'm glad you're feeling better too.

I hope you are feeling better. Great idea using the strings to reduce the scrap basket.
