Scrappy Wednesday

I pulled a couple of small baggies with the tiniest pieces and dumped them on the table.  Most of these 'normal' people would just toss out, but I have a project to use them up instead.

I've decided that September is going to be a month of small.  Cleaning up my smallest projects.  They will use up the cut off batting, cut off backing, and left over bindings.  And stitching the smallest of pieces - I love working with small.

Just 1.5" squares braced with 1" x 1.5" , to then be sashed with the skinny setting sashings and tiny corner stones.  I'm throwing the 'opposites' for a reversal of the light/color into another small tub.

Besides, Moe has declaired a moratorium on large work.  Bella has gone missing - no - just prefers napping on the guest bed now that we have cooled down considerably.  I hate to tell Moe, but that whole table and mess is going to cleared out of that corner this week.

The storms have passed and Fall has moved in.  We are in the comfortable 70's with much cooler nights - great sleeping.

Sewingly Yours,

Sewing small in September? Now, you are singing my song. I absolutely LOVE using my smallest scraps!

Small works for me! Have fun playing with yours.
We are still getting a lot of rain and it hasn't cooled down. It is supposed to be in the 90's today. I am so glad the storms have passed though.

I need to reorganise all my tiny scraps, as they are scattered all over the ironing board, as I looked for something that represented reeds in the water, Finally I found 2 pieces, about an inch wide, and 4 " long, just enough. So good your storm has gone and cooler times arew ahead, enjoy before the real cold settles in.
