Happily, lots of sewing has been happening as I try to make the most of a gap in my work schedule (due to a reno job that my hubby is doing solo this week!).
I think I'm trying to "bank" some sewing hours, knowing that I'll be soon back working full-time installing kitchens with my hubby and won't have the same time (or energy) for my creative pursuits.
Since finishing up my king-size quilt a few days ago, I decided to indulge in a few new projects. ;o) I set to work cutting some strips to do a little piecing.
Once my piecing was complete and I trimmed things up, I was left with some pretty scraps. You know I cannot resist scraps! lol No surprise then, that I took those scrappy bits and pieced them together.
Here they are pieced and with their edges trimmed!
I find something almost magical in taking scraps and making some usable patchwork from them. It's highly addictive. ;o)
|Take a good look at the sizes of those saved scraps. I made 2" wide strips from all those leftover bits and love how no two scraps are the same size! This is why I don't throw out even the tiniest bits of fabric. lol|
What am I making with all those strips and scraps, you ask...?
Well, let me just say, "What goes around, comes around!"
Cryptic? Maybe a little. ;o)
It's a secretive work in progress and fingers crossed, I will be sharing the finish with you before the end of the month. Can't tell you more than that, for now, but I'm pretty sure you'll like it. ;o)
Linking up with Lee and all the talented ladies sharing
