Scrap winners!

Thanks to all of you for your comments on the scraps. First, I’m actually not very organized at all, but moving is a chance to start out strong, right? Also, I did in fact consciously chose to put the scraps in contrasting baskets. Might not make practical sense but it looked prettier to me. That’s always more important, right??

Anyhow – congrats to Kerry and Georgia!  The ol’ random number generator picked you!

Georgia’s getting some brown and purple (with some green thrown in!) scraps…

Scrap mania!

I’m taking my time and being very thorough with the sewing room set up.  Yesterday that meant a major scrap sort!

Presort:

And post sort!

Post Sort

I’m not great about using my little scraps but maybe if they are sorted by color I will? In any case, I have more than I’ll ever use and should give some to you. Comment with your two favorite colors and I’ll pick a couple of winners on Monday.  A scrap pack will then be on it’s way to you!  Good luck and happy weekend to you all!

What I’ve been up to.

My husband and sister painting away! (Forgive the lousy IPhone photos!)

We went for lots of bold color and we’re super happy with the results.

And now – this is what I’m living in.

Time to get unpacking! Of course you know my sewing room is already partly good to go! Will do a whole post on that a later… Hope you all have wonderful weekends!

Why is everything cuter when tiny?

Adorable mini Bonne Maman jars.

We all love Bonne Maman jars. But have you seen these teeny tiny ones before??  A hotel I was at recently had ’em.  Now I don’t THINK you’re supposed to take…oh… six or so… but I did.  I couldn’t help it.

I love them. Love. But I’m at a loss as to what I can do with them. They make me wish I had a bead collection. Are you allowed to start a collection purely because you already have something to hold it in??

They are just so… little! And wonderful! Anyone have suggestions what I could use them for?

Whip Up Mini Quilts winner!

Thanks for all your mini quilts comments.  They are a great time, right??

Getting down to business… the ol’ random number generator picked…

#32: Megan!

Who said “What a great little book! I’ve been thinking about doing some mini-quilts lately for just those reasons you mention: you can try out new techniques and ideas without the major commitment of a full-size quilt. Plus, it’s a great way to use up scraps (not that I have any of those lying around).”

Congrats Megan!!  Keep any eye out for an email from me…
