ScrapHappy - March 2021

Welcome ome to ScrapHappy day....the day when a number of us post about what we've been making with our scraps.

Not a lot of scrappyness going on after being out of state for almost 6 weeks.  Only two projects for me this month.   First up 4 bowl cozies made from the leftover fabric from other projects.  The top left one even started with a square that was too small for a bowl cozy so I added a scrap strip of red around the outside of it so that I would have a big enough square for it.  One is a commission, two are for a gift, and the two color has no home yet.

And finally three fingertip towels made with sting pieced strips made from purple scraps that I'd sewn together years ago, and three finger-tip towels that were originally made to be cross-stitched on.   The towels came from some of the cross-stitch stuff I brought home from my mom's stash (well what I've gone thru to this point).   Have no idea where or who will get these at this point.

Stash Enhancement

 You'd think with the size of my stash that I wouldn't need to buy anything, and that is very true especially since part of my mom's stash is headed home with me (no not a lot.....just the FQ's she bought on trips to Indiana).

However, with all that has been going on the last month I decided to visit a couple of quilt shops....and yes ended up buying a little bit at each.

the second store I hit the jackpot in the remnant bags.  Got three panels and 4 yds of a floral that will work for a quilt back.

Love this deer/window panel.   Might have blocks in my UFO block bin that would work for borders on this.

Bugs.....and yes, before anyone asks i bought this because I wanted the snail.   Will use the rest of the panel for a donation quilt.
Bambi will make a sweet baby quilt.
I"m thinking I might have a top already done that this might work with for backing.

Also purchased, but not shown here were 7 FQ's for backgrounds at the second quilt store.


1. the death certificates have been received and now the most urgent of remaining matters can be handled before I return to Tx

2. For the job interview that I had on Monday, now for patience as I wait to see if they want a second interview.
