UFO Has Taken Off

One of my New Year’s resolutions was to get at least one UFO, unfinished fabric object, done each month. I can happily say that February’s UFO has left the building. Woot!! 

My sister has waited sooo long for this she probably feels like they look. LOL.

Do you have any plans for your SEWING SUPER POWERS yet? It’s never too late to start. There are so many organizations out there that would love your help!!!

Incoming goodies….

My grandmother was an amazing seamstress. I got a box from my aunt that contained lots of my grandmother’s sewing supplies. “Sew” many goodies to pick through. There was even a button box and wooden spools!! WOOT!

She tucked several of my grandmother’s crocheted items in there too. I love using these around the house but have never had the patience to make them myself.

This will look amazing with a red tablecloth underneath for the holidays.

Oh Scrap It’s Out of Control

Apparently ME, MYSELF and I should not be “playing” in the sewing room after midnight.

But the thunderstorm kept me up soooo I decided that the scrap binds were getting too full and stressing me out.

scrap cutting

I spent hours digging in the scrap bins, chopping, and cutting and it still doesn’t seem like anything moved out!!!

How do you get your scraps under control? At what point do you just grab a garbage bag and toss them?

The up side is that I now have enough strips to make a year’s worth of scrappy binding for charity quilts….and I never got to the yellow, orange, and black binsSurprised smile
