Sunday Sitrep

We have progress ... 

whilst I haven't quite finished the quilting on Jeans quilt, there is only a couple of hours left so I feel sure that I will get it finished tonight ...

and we have scraps!  
whilst I took a break from the quilting, I sorted the scraps, 
and this is what my studio looked like mid sort ...


and now they are tamed into these!


and the bin looks like this again!  


and the studio looks a little better too!


so, for those of you that asked, I have scraps, and I was really shocked at just how many little tiny bits I have kept - why?  I have no idea

I'll be contacting you soon if I don't have your address  :)

And ...


I managed to piece one of Susan's blocks , one down, one to go!

so far,  I'm doing pretty good

rest?  oh yeah, I had a great lay in this morning, and then a slow start with Pancakes, bacon and maple syrup .... mmm delicious!  The Diva enjoyed it too!  

and whilst I was sorting and stitching this afternoon, a lovely thick traditional stew bubbled away in the oven, just what we need on a cold dank blustery autumn day...

hope you are all staying warm, and for those on the east coast of USA, stay safe!

Oh I'd have loved to come and sort through your scraps just because. Breakfast sounded as great as Susan's block! My sister in law took my niece to New York yesterday for a mini break...they've certainly not picked the best time to go!

That's a lot of scraps!
Sounds like a successful day x

Looks like organised chaos to me. I hate being tidy... It's just not in my genes.

It's always shocking to me how many scraps I have. I just made 43 blocks all from scraps and didn't make much of a dent in them. Crazy! I am on the east coast north of Baltimore and we are as ready as we're going to get. It's raining now but not much wind (yet). I'll be sewing as much as I can.

This block is stunning!! What is the blue?

Marianne said...

Wow, can't wait to see the great quilts you are going to make out of these.

Laura Jane said...

Oooh scraps galore! I must sort out mine one of these days, they're a bit of a crappy mess and I never want to sew from them!

I bet those scraps are gorgeous! I love Susan's star - such great colours!

Cindy said...

Isn't that the best feeling ever? A clean studio = a fresh start. Susan's star is gorgeous!

Susan's star is stunning... I, too, have been guilty of scrap and snippet stashing and couldn't begin to explain why! Ha!!
