Was it an illusion?
Don't I remember showing you pictures of the organized sewing room just a few weeks ago? So what's this mess?
That's right! It's all Katie's fault! She issued a challenge to use up our scraps.
Look how organized I was... All the strips were gathered from drawers, bags and bins and hung on the drying rack behind the sewing machine.
And the next picture shows all the colored strips disappearing! Wow!
And then I went to pull more colors to hang on the rack... There's definitely something wrong with this theory! My scraps are NOT diminishing... If anything, I would swear they are multiplying in the dark. Do you suppose I should leave the lights on 24/7?
Doesn't look like I've accomplished much in the last 2-3 weeks, but here is the scrappy star quilt that "Love", Ann and Theri convinced me to keep working on. The 12 inch squares are great to work with and certainly helps fill up space. If you have any great ideas for finishing, please send them on!
I need to apologize for not keeping up and commenting on your wonderful projects or great news. I find myself in a situation similar to Connie's--medications not working or nobody has a clue what will work. But enough of that!
I am amazed at what a diverse and wonderful group I have been lucky enough to join! We have different styles and tastes in colors and projects--yet we have meshed together quite well, don't you think?
Oh! One last picture.... Should I send these for April or mix them up in another batch?
