it's those scraps!

i think it's the scraps ( the little rascals)! they seem to be the biggest, bulkiest, and messiest thing in my sewing room... but, dang it... they are just sooOOooo GOOD! and just to be very clear, this was debatable... until the past 2 days when i said to self, "are you really going to use these??" so, i sat down and started digging through them... these are what i made and i must say, i think i'm about to just start cutting up my yardage to make more scraps! LOL...

i think i'd almost do it too... if i didn't keep buying these! m. u. s. t. make!

( thanks Fabricworm and Wondrous Wovens!! ) so, i guess i might spare these new treats from my lovely Canadian sponsor Dragonfly Fabrics! that and they are becoming impossible to find in the states! ( wink, wink ) :)

the hubby's off this weekend to play with his friends... aaahhhh... do here it..??? that's me fantasizing what i want to do more... read or sew??? OOohhh... the options! hehehe... Have a great one kids!! Xo, Heather

  11. Cute pillow--I need to learn to use my scraps in a pretty way like you! Your must have quilts are the same as mine--someday soon I hope to make both those quilts. I am guessing I will get to see yours finished first though!

  13. the pillow is adorable!

    I just sent off a bunch of my scraps to the girls in my bee...I'm asking for just simple scrappy patchwork blocks (I packed them by color, each girl gets a different color) and then I will sash them in white, I think. I am hoping it comes out well!

  18. O my gosh... I thought I was in love with your last goldfish pillow but no no, this one is way better. Please tell me you are going to keep it and love it so I can stop coveting it and don't check your etsy store EVERY hour ;-)

  22. ENJOY your day girl! I may just do the same since I can't get out there to garden today cuz of all this rain. It made the soil very much like quick sand I am afraid. Better hopes for tomorrow I guess:)

  26. Scraps or yardage -- I have that I want it all feeling just looking at your sewing room. You are so very fortunate to have a large sunny room to create within. I like the dragonfly fabric too. Now, go make your eldest a quilt!

  29. OH, they're wonderful!! Great pillows. I think I have a dangerous attachment to my scraps - just can't bear to think of some of those fabrics "gone" for good! Hmmm... fabric hoarding - it's a vice I'm willing to keep! Happy Easter!
