I tipped it out this morning and sorted through it, some is a bit too small but will be used for stuffing. The rest has been pressed and put into a zip lock bag for later.
While I was at it I turned out a plastic box of strips and scraps and started pressing and sorted. After a while my mind was wandering and log cabin blocks floated around. Boom.
Out came the rotary cutter and I soon had a stack of 1 1/2" strips in 2 piles, light and dark.
This is what I have to show for it.
I am quite pleased with the layout, I just pulled strips at random. I am making 2, they will be a pair of cushions.
Here are the next 3 strips from left to right anti clockwise, I want to get them 18" square.
Now all this creativity has a down side, I did not get through the plastic box and I pulled some more colours out from other boxes.
My table now looks like this,
I thought that a break to share this with you was in order, and a cuppa, then I will go and restore peace and harmony. I will finish the blocks tomorrow and get them layered and quilted, I have the backing fabric ready. Not a WIP but a fair inroad into the scrap ocean.
We have had rain, hail and snow, all at the same time at one point. The wind is high and we have had thunder and lightening to boot. We also managed a few spells of blue skies and bright sunshine, a bit of everything really.
My dinner was Fish Chowder and was very good, I will be making it again, soon.
That's all for now, my tea needs my undivided attention.
BTW, someone left a comment on an old post regarding TTFN,
it is Ta Ta For Now and was a catch phrase for Jimmy Young, the radio presenter.
