15 Minutes



I have spent at least 15 minutes a day hand stitching - my goal.  I need to get those four completed temperature rosettes stitched to their back grounds; so today is dedicated to this project.


My back needs a break, because I spent all day Saturday cutting up fabrics from those gifted bags.  I pull all the big stuff first - anything for the shelf or FQ totes - and then I process the rest into squares for the barrels or strings for that tote.


Another bag was filled with zip lock bags from different people that I stuffed all together to deal with 'later'.


My goal was two bags, but since I was tackling zip bags, two of those.  As you can see, all of these really didn't hold any 'large' pieces.  This is my usual donation - the clear offs from the cutting board.  That's OK as it all works for me.  AND I have some fresh fabrics in my barrels that get a constant work out.

And I'm lining up some sewing and handwork prep for the next few days as they say we have another storm coming thru - I'm going to be ready.

Sewingly Yours,

  2. Love your rosettes.....they really look good. We often forget how much work it is to deal with scraps, and all the cutting involved to get to a finish-able piece. You got some great new fabric:)

  3. You must be the scrap queen in your area. I have the same issue, but I'm not complaining. The cost of fabric is outrageous. I have a few bags to process myself.

  4. I love getting and using scraps! Some I use for myself, but a lot are used in charity quilts. It's a win/win. I get to make quilts, and a child somewhere gets a cozy, comforting quilt. For your temperature quilt, do you just sew one single hexie per day, and then sew them together at the end of the week? Is there a chart somewhere with temperature/color suggestions?
