I had promised myself that I would tame the scrap monster for once and all, I have done my best.
A pile of orphan and trial blocks were set free from their storage, most were then cut and subcut.
Many strips, squares and other shaped bits were duly pressed into service. What resulted is completely mixed up scrappyness.
This just needs squaring up and a border added before it is ready for quilting. It will be around 72" by 84" finished, the back will be a rescued sheet.
Just a few of the oddments that make it up, just the result of playtime.
I also turned out a small bag of 1 1/2" strips, these were left from the string blocks (still waiting to be sashed tut tut) I turned them into a Jelly Roll Race Quilt. This is fairly small so has been put in the WIP pile for now, maybe it will grow, maybe it will become a Baby floor quilt.
This top is around 12" shorter, unfinished, and I am putting off deciding to make it longer until it has been squared up. I may well just put a deeper border round it.
I also managed to get out for a morning on Monday, first to Llandeilo then on to Llandovery where I found Darth Vader, well a look a like.
He stands, frozen in time, guarding this castle.
Ben and I had a steep clamber up to see the walls, followed by a precarious slither down.
We returned home across a corner of the mountain and I stopped to take this, the weather was a bit murky but the view is breathtaking.
Now I must get myself off to the library, I picked up some books last week only to find that I had read 2 previously and there were another 3 that I could not get into. The ones that I want to read are still sitting waiting, as this weather seems set in it will not be long.
I had lost all focus on my sewing but a few days scrappy, aimless and mindless stitching has sharpened me, I have things to make and now the desire to make them.
