I've been cutting lots and lots of little 2 inch by 3 and a half inch pieces from my multitudinous scrap piles.
I want to make a quilt from this pattern on the cover. I somehow don't think this will be a quick one to make. LOL I first saw it at Sunburnt Quilts when I was trolling through one of Amy's online Quilt Festivals. There is always so much inspiration there, it keeps me going for quite a while. Anyway, Karen did such an excellent job on her quilt that I just really wanted to make one, too. Yesterday I started cutting leftovers into those little bitty rectangles. Maybe one of these fine old days I'll actually get it made into a quilt!
Yes, I really do just cram them into a box after making a quilt. I figure I'll get around to using them sooner or later and I can't bear to just pitch them out.
Of course they have to be ironed first before I can begin to do anything with them.
Frankly, it's just toooooo hot to do anything outside. I do what absolutely has to be done and then I get myself back inside. Air conditioning is my friend!
Seriously, it's 98 degrees out there right now at a little after four p.m. The heat index is 106.
So, I sew. This little pile is on the bed in my sewing room.
It has grown into this so far. There is some talk that I might need a quilt intervention, but really, what else can I do? Oh, yeah, clean the house. Maybe later! LOL
Hope you're finding lots to do and having fun!
Hugs and kisses,
