Scraps! The Sequel

The PURGE continues in my little corner of the world!


Above is my third quilt top from my abundant supply of scraps!


The second flimsy.


The first quilt top. I had no idea I had so many scraps!


Finally,
I had an absolutely hideous hanging lamp 
(I should have taken a before shot).
I'm talking Ugly, green pleated plastic!!
Then an epiphany hit me and abracadabra, hocus - pocus!
I love orange and it brightens up my boys reading area.
Win/Win!! YEP!

The Very Hairy Berry Picker






 This sly fox was nipping raspberries from the extremely overgrown patch in our neighbour's yard this morning.

I'm such a cut up!


It may have been hotter than a firecracker outside but that didn't stop me from smoking through my scrap stash and doing a little cutting!
Ok. A lot of cutting! 3", 4" & 7" squares for scrappy quilts.

Scrap Happy


A few scraps and BAM!!
Got me a new pillow and cleared out some of those "what am I going to do with these" bits!
I fought with the back to try and line it up but to no avail (see the diagonals)?
SO,
one zipper later,
pillow back.


Gotta love loosing the scraps!
By the way, it's nice to be back.

 Bullet left so many amazing paw prints on our hearts. 
I miss her so much.

Kinda says it all!


*
My past last two weeks have read like this.
 Phil and pneumonia (he's feeling much better now),
CJ with a very bad cold (just a few sniffles left)
and 
myself, cold and flu (starting to come around).
Hence, not much stitching :(

This morning...a balmy -23C.
In like a lion, out like a lamb. eh?! BULL!!
