Scrappy Wednesday

Those strattas have become 16-patches.  I have 10 done, but need 36 for this project.  So more strattas from that string tote have to be made, then sub-cut, and then turned into more of these  cuties.

Scraps went into the next temperature rosette.  We are slowly warming up and with next weekend being the clock changes again - maybe Spring is on it's way?

62 - 33 - 38 - 41 - 42 - 48 - 51

Because the temperature quilt is on it's way to coming to an end, I started a new Hexie project.  Larger papers and using a JR of Indigos and cheddars with some shirtings.  I have started participating in a 'fiber play' date at our local Library.  It started out as a knitting group, but has evolved into any type thread/fiber work.  Lovely bunch of ladies and I really enjoyed my time.  There was knitting, crochet, embroidery, rug making and some needlework all going on.  The group meets every other week, so this will be a good project to take along.

It's hard to see, but I pulled the next slip from the cup for March's challenge for the Scrap Attack.  Bow Ties are the block of the month and I am waiting to see what color Angela pulls for RSC18 to use these with.

I've wavered from my 'focus' for the year.  I need to get at least one quilt quilted, bound and done!  I'm also prepping for some big things coming up in April - get those ducks in a row!

 Little Projects

A reminder that another Blog Hop is coming up.  Love to work tiny or maybe you are contemplating giving it a try?  Small projects make for instant gratification in a finish.  Here will be some great inspiration for those small projects.

Sewingly Yours,


  1. I’m looking forward to the blog hop. I do like to work small sometimes. Can’t wait to see your temperature hexis sewn into a quilt.

  2. So excited about the next blog hop!!

  3. Your weather is warming, and my trees are starting to change colour. The seasons are definitely changing!

  4. I enjoy seeing all the things you are sewing. I also like all the buttons you put on your blog that I can use. Thanks

  5. A fiber playdate sounds like fun. It's fun to stitch with other crafters. I've only belonged to a quilting group for a short time, but it has reinvigorated my interest in quilting. I like the colors for your new hexagon project.

  6. The blog are the best that is extremely useful to keep.
    I can share the ideas of the future as this is really what I was looking for,
    I am very comfortable and pleased to come here. Thank you very much!

  7. Woohoo - another hexie project!!!! That was quite the assortment at your library group - it will be interesting to see if anyone starts new hobbies based on what the other ladies are working on. Are you thinking of doing another temp quilt? Hey - Did I miss the finish of your hexie flower baskets?
