My stash grew again! I am so happy to report that as the growth came via a blog reader. Regina send me this big box stuffed with goodies along with a note that says to expect another box in a couple weeks or so. Glory be, I hit the jackpot.
In total seriousness, the scraps that get sent to me from blog readers absolutely make my day. I would so much rather go and get a mystery box out of the mailbox than go to town to the fabric shop. I know for some of you, you think I’m plum crazy because for you, it’s just the opposite. You would rather go to the store than mess with scraps…
I love getting a box…I sort and iron and sort and trim and sort and iron and trim some more. It’s a fabric petters dream.
Right away I grabbed some of the whites and cut them up big enough to be the big corners on my Pineapple Crazy blocks. I was running low on them.
Next I grabbed some of the brightly colored thin strips. They are going to be the long pieces on the blocks.
I’m not saying that I’ll never sew with quilt shop fabric from a fabric line but I will say, my favorite sewing ever will always and forever be from scraps sent to me by blog readers….I love it! Thanks a million Regina. You’ve had me smiling for an hour or two already…and I haven’t even started sorting and ironing yet!
