Scrappy Wenesday

I'll be trying to clear out another baggy of scraps.  I've been tossing bits from the past few Civil War project into this bag.  Some simple 'floating' Stars using 2" squares for the 9-patches and 1.5" squares for the points.

There could be other blocks made to use up pieces that don't fit into these Stars so I can clear out that bag.  A good start to some basic blocks that will eventually be worked into a wallhanging or quilt. 

These two rarely lay near each other, so had to catch them in the act.  After a heavy morning's rain the sun came out and the air was so refreshing with a light breeze.  Bella and Moe soaked it up all afternoon and into the evening. 

More rain to come the next few days - best get stitching,
Sewingly Yours,

What a sweet picture of the kitties. We had rain here yesterday too. Nice to get things wet down a little.

You always find exactly the right project for a bag of scraps. The stars look great. Hope you've gotten to see some sunshine this weekend. We did, but with all the recent rains, we get hot and muggy with the sunshine.
