Scrappy Wednesday

While Mom was in the hospital, we did some clearing out and winterization.  I had to pull some things out of the way to get windows and doors covered.  One item was the tote of Christmas scraps.  I don't particularly like to work with these, but something made me play.

Excuse the dark photos as I have to adjust to the darken rooms with all the covered natural light now.  I had someone who decided to help with this project.  He didn't mind me digging around him as I think it just 'feathered' his nest more.

This is what caught my eye.  Some very vintage kitty panels that were 'gifted' somewhere along the way.

Do some of you have this stashed away in the back of the closet?

They are just too precious to stay hidden.  My Christmas scraps have passed my normal 'use it up in two years' rule so I have to do some serious work on it.

Our next guild meeting is Indoor Garage Sale/Swap, so I will take this opportunity to go thru everything and do a clear out.  Some of that Christmas fabric is definitely getting added to that cause.

Mom is home, so this project is put aside (for a little while).  I had two small quilting commissions come in to they will get finished before the weekend.  Then I tackle all those shelves and totes for the guild swap.

Thank You all for the well wishes - they were passed on.
Sewingly Yours,

My favorite thing to do with Christmas fabrics is "forever gift bags". I make drawstring bags of various sizes. Some are fancy, some are plain. We use them year after year.
