After a couple of episodes of Dr Who I was this far! So I decided I might as well finish those last two spools and finish the top.
The deadline is Friday, so I need to figure out how I want to quilt this one and get going. At this point it was nearly time for dinner and I thought I should maybe tidy up the sewing room. I started out by sewing some 2 inch strips together for my crocheted rug, and started digging through a shoebox I unearthed from under my sewing table earlier. Well, there weren't really many 2 inch strips in there, but there were a ton of odd and ends of scraps. I remembered that I had intended to do some scrappy patchwork blocks out of them. I thought that maybe I would sew a few up and reduce the amount in the box.
I just pulled random pieces and sewed them log cabin style. I made two full 12 1/2 inch blocks and two smaller blocks yesterday, but my scrap bin seemed just as full as when I started. I don't know if I will ever be able to empty this box, but I guess it will be fun trying! Today I finished up six more blocks. My bin is a little emptier, but I did pull some strips out of my big scrap bin because most of what is in the box is smaller pieces, and I needed more longer strips to finish the blocks up.
