ScrapHappy June

Been working on multiple scrappy projects this month. 

Fronts for two commissioned stockings have been completed. 

And the 2 gallon sized bags of blue scraps have been gone through and sorted into values/colors.   With a large pile sorted out to be sent off to a friend for use in scrappy quilts.
Backs for these 4 scrappy stockings have been cut from a remnant of an old Hoffman Christmas fabric.  Linings will be cut from another remnant this weekend.
Last, but not least these quilted postcards were made for two friends who are celebrating milestone birthdays this month.  Scraps were used for the front.  Backing fabric is from a remnant.   And the flowers are 'silk' flowers that fell off of their stems.  Buttons are used as their centers.

1. Cooler weather this week after horrendous storm on 6/9 here in the DFW area

2. For the recent gifts of free meal kits last week and this week - a boon to my budget!

I can't believe you found time to make scrappy projects AND sort scraps for someone else on top of your other work!

Those stockings are going to be wonderful. I want to see the backs of them that you plan to use! I hope today was a profitable day for you.

I was worried about you, my daughter and granddaughters with the storms in DFW!! Now I get to add another concern...the officer who was shot and killed in the parking garage on Friday worked with my daughter. Your stockings are beautiful, as are your postcards!! Which meal service did you have sent to you? I tried that a couple of times, but there was too much sodium for my dad. I liked that I could spend $10 for a trial week and that the food they sent was enough for an entire week (or more) for my dad, even though it was to be just two dinners for two people.

It sounds as if you had a mammoth sort out of scraps and those postcards for your friends look really good.
