Scrappy Wednesday

This is the back of the Wild & Goosey miniature.  I'm very set in making those seams press nice and flat - pressing the back first and then flipping to finish with the front.

Scrap bits of black for sashing and cut down a 5" square for the tiny corner stones.  A FQ pulled from a tote for backing and the binding  is from the leftover drawer.  These little blocks that lanquished who knows how long in a little container our now in a happier place.

Then it was the hour-glass blocks turn.  Something simple, yet classy.

There's that pretty back!

The binding needs stitching down and label added, but well on it's way to a quick finish.  I'll add a few old shirt buttons down that light panel for a little fun.

I started on the Shoe Fly blocks, but didn't like where I was going, so that will be de-stitched with a new play date.

So I pulled this old salad container that is holding a few different blocks - only 4 Snow Balls, 40 Bow Ties, and 40 red 9-patches.  I'll just cut the Snow Balls down to squares for the barrel system and then play with the Bow-Ties.

Today is the last day for the 12 Days of Christmas in July and don't forget to visit CAROL'S Christmas Hop.

We are on flash flood watch with the Valley Dam full to capacity and many of the streams and creeks to the banks.  Predicting three more days of heavy rains, so there is sure to be some evacuations and I hope nothing too severe in damages.  I was suppose to vend locally this weekend, but that could change under the circumstances.

Stay safe and stitch on,
Sewingly Yours,

Well, it’s very cute and colorful. I love it. Yikes about the flash flood warning. It seems strange to be having so much rain in July. Stay safe, my friend.

Oh...I need to get back to my Wild and Goosey too. I love using up those scraps, but they sue do take a lot of time to stitch!

Your backs are as pretty as the fronts.

My tin of half-square triangles just kicked me in the ankle while looking at those geese. Hmm.... I do like that block.

Very fun minis! I really like the Wild and Goosey one. You've been moving lots of scraps into blocks this last week.
