Its typical cold winters weather here, except we are not getting much rain. I decided that the sewing nook needed a big tidy up and some stuff had to go!
I started by rearranging my wall hangings and mini quilts.
Then I got stuck into the scraps I had accumulated but never sorted. I threw things out...including a UFO....well, I just threw out all the tiny applique pieces I was never going to stitch down because I no longer like the pattern. I rehoused the magazine pattern in the book case and I cut the background fabric up into 2.5" squares! I cut up all the scraps I could make into 2.5" squares or half square triangles for my Scrappy Sprouts project.
I discovered these pieced Dresden wedges left over from a quilt I made HERE back in 2013. I still have a metre of purple fabric that matches these, but was never used....I am thinking I could make a nice pillow with these fabrics, so a new WIP is added to the list!
These lovely fussy cut tractors were also discovered. I can feel another kids quilt coming up next!
I opened the mail to find this lovely thank you card from the new owner of the first Scrappy Bargello I made (HERE), a lady affected by the Dungog floods. It is nice to know that the quilt it is loved and appreciated, but sad to hear that she is still waiting for major repairs to her unit, but I guess insurance claims and rebuilding takes time.
Happy quilting, Sue.
