First of all, thanks for all the wonderful comments! There are definitely some crafty people out there, and many, many scrap lovers! I’m inspired by all your comments to start loving my scraps, rather than feeling overwhelmed by them. My next quilt will use scraps (once I get them all organized!)
Speaking of organizing, do you think it’s possible to get a blister from folding fabric? I’d laugh too, but I’m the one with the blister… I was using my plastic ruler to fold the fabrics to the same size, and apparently kept hitting the same spot on my hand. Ouch! Hopefully I can stay organized so I won’t have to spend another weekend folding fabric!
Secondly, do you think there’s such a thing as quilting A.D.D? If so, I have it. I just could not get focused on anything this weekend. In an attempt to avoid doing taxes, I thought I should start a quilt, but instead seemed to have started more than one. Should I start a coin quilt? Should I do a little paper piecing? Maybe work on something that’s already started?
I have nothing to show for it save for this pile of cut fabrics…
And back to fabric… folding all of that fabric reminded me that there are still a few fabrics I’m dying to own… so I was wondering if anyone might be up for a swap? I’m looking for the Heather Ross mushrooms, either white or yellow, or the gnomes in yellow. I’m also looking for two of the Flea Market Fancy prints – the small posies in blue (as shown below but in blue), and also the larger floral bouquet in blue.
I have other FMF prints I would trade, or Heather Ross VW buses in either pink or blue, or I have a couple of fat quarters of the Heather Ross seagull print. Let me know if you might be interested in swapping!
Winners of the scrap giveaway will be picked tonight and announced tomorrow morning…
