DWM - 2/11/13

 
 

Well, with the snowstorm over the weekend - what's a gal to do but pull out some scraps and play as long as the power stays on.  Luckily we didn't get as much snow or as high winds as other areas - put I did have fun playing all the same.  Gosh, what we store our stashed out scraps in - right!  I think these cute little gift bags need emptying - so I can use them for some gifts!


When I saw all those HSTs and bits of scraps, I remembered the little baskets over at  Lynn's.  I've made these before - fun and quick and they use up those bits.  I broke down some of the pieces into my pre-cut barrels and the many bits of lites are now stored properly for future use.  I need a lot more of these little baskets for a nice size quilt - I am sure I will come across more scraps to play with.


And I prepped some of my scrap Summer Breeze for a star quilt to work on when my SIL comes down to play with her star quilt.  This fabric is just too pretty to let sit on the shelf.  I, also, did miles and miles of binding - I have a lot of quilts and minis waiting for their final step in completion.  I hope to get those finished up thru the rest of February.


I did manage a finish - Pam Buda's Pocket PatchWork - Orphans & Scraps project.  I didn't want a skinny long runner, so made them into a 4-patch mini for a candle mat.  This is my February Christmas Thru The Year project.  Paired with a candle and little prim ornament or collectable and I have another gift ready.

The Hugs & Kisses Blog Hop (see button) started today.
As soon as SewCalGal has an update post - I will put the button with link for the voting for the Golden Quilter Awards.
Remember to check the button for the Traveling Stash boxes - a number are ready for new homes!

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  9. I love the little cake stands! So glad your power stayed on. We had a small blizzard here over the weekend--no problems as long as you didn't have to drive in it.

  14. Snow can make one so productive. We might get some tomorrow night, but probably not enough to keep us away from work.

  15. A totally fun way to spend a snow day. Glad y'all are safe and still have power. All that snow is so pretty to look at, but you can keep it up there. It was 69 today and I was still freezing. ;)
