Scrappy Sunday

Today I spent a good 5 hours in the sewing room working on pressing and cutting scraps into useful sizes.
Had a good size piles to work with. I organize them by the closes size I could trim them down to.
Starting with 2 1/2", 3", 3 1/2" 4", 5" 6 1/2" and had even a few large pieces

With those I went ahead and cut them into squares and some strips.

Some of the pieces were units that mom had sewn and strip sets

Which I will use to help complete what I had up on the wall of the blocks mom made.

Like I said yesterday this will be fun. My poor mom is now dealing with Bronchitis. Seems like it's one thing or another lately.
She'll be surprised when she see what I've done with her scraps.

This evening I took a break from sewing and did a little crocheting on a new afghan I started this week

This too is using scrap yarn that mom gave me many years ago.

Linking up with Kathy's 

and with Cynthia's


  1. Love the afghan, green is one of my favourite colours. What a delight to be able to use up scraps, looking forward to seeing the end result.

  2. I hope your mother will do better soon if it isn't one thing it is another. Wish her well. I need to make time this year to organize more of my scraps I have two boxes in the closet crammed full, I don't even know what is in them at this point and I have all of those that are cut and stacked in boxes in the sewing room on the shelf too

  3. The blocks on your design wall are stunning. It is really going to be a beautiful quilt. I love blues!

    Your afghan is coming along nicely as well. I love to crochet but have only done the edges of baby quilts lately.

  4. Great job of organizing scraps! Way to go!
    Such a lovely afghan you have started!

  5. Hope your mom gets to feeling better soon. I love what you are doing with those scraps. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  6. sorry about your mom...hope she gets better and I so love what you are doing.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
