Unexpected happiness

After receiving an unexpected bag of presents scraps yesterday
I immediately set to work.
The bag was upended on the carpet...
and....
All the little strips and pieces were divided....
BY COLOR...
ALL around me!!!!

My son asked about the mess.
I ignored him.
;)

In the picture above you can see the blues
and orange/mustards I found!!!
I wanted to begin sewing them together
RIGHT AWAY!!!!

but.....


When the swirling was done....

I had some FUN!!!!

  2. Isn't it great that you have friends who know that you will put their "throw-away" scraps to good use?!!!! I also have been blessed with friends like that!! They even gave me a fabric panel with a rambling old Victorian house (like mine)with the title "Home for Wayward Fabrics" written above it. The picture has a sign saying the same thing the yard in front of the front porch!!! Got to love friends like that!!!
