This is one of the reasons I do not have anything left in the 1 1/2 inch strip box...I cut a lot of them up into 3 1/2 inch strips. Then, I made mini-fence rail blocks.The pattern is hard to see, for me at least, unless I are backed away from them...it looks all jumbled to me, when I am up close. It has been fun making these blocks, because I am remembering, as I sew, all the projects I have made from these fabrics...and enjoying it so much. I am now glad I took the time to cut up the scraps and save the strips! I have 2 inch and 2.5 inch strips too. Just noticed, I sure have a lot of red in there. I have some strips now in that bin again, to start saving, thanks to Joyce, my Arizona friend! I have to stop making these blocks now, because I don't have any more light strips in that size...so I will be saving up when I do projects until I can make some more blocks.
This is when I was just messing around and seeing if this would work...a big jumble of fabrics...no fabric collections or matchy-matchy here! I envy you coordinated girls!! You have talent I just don't have.
A string wallet, as mine was really worn out. I think pink is in order for spring, don't you?
More scrappy blocks, these are all 2 inch pieces, in the four patches. You can tell I am bound and determined to use all the littlest scraps up, right?? Lol!
My friend Finn and I are going to do the Jelly Roll Sampler together, and I can't wait! Should be so much fun!
THE GREAT POTATO CHIP DEBACLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As some of you know, I have been on weight watchers for about 7 weeks now, and have lost 10 pounds. I was feeling pretty smug, just thinking...hey, I can do this, I just have to stick with it and put in the time...and then
Work folks threw a potluck!! And someone...someone...brought ruffles potato chips. NO big deal, right? Except when you are a potato chipaholic!!! I ate just a couple...then a handful...then two handfuls!!
You get the idea...I totally blew the week, lost nothing on the scale, and look like a bloated wart hog. Potato chips, OK, I get it! I have no control, and must stay away from these!!
What is your weakness? What do you just love, love, love to eat!!!??
Have a super day!
