Scrap Happy Saturday

Had an idea last night as I was lying in bed. Does that ever happen to you? To be honest I was having a little trouble going to sleep. Any way the idea was to turn this

into this

                 Scrap Thingy's 465

Just a little Osnaburg and ta da! A mini quilt waiting for a bit of hand stitching with perle cotton.

Tomorrow DD goes back to school. Today we’ll be shopping and packing up the car for the trip. What will you spend your weekend doing?

I’ve liked up with The Rainbow Challenge today.

Don’t forget the giveaway!

Very creative idea! I sometimes get my best inspiration when I can't sleep!

Great little block or quilt. I love the teal everyone is working one.

That's outrageously cute Char. I often have brilliant ideas laying in bed (and also in the shower !)

Today Im planning to sew my butt off.

Yep, if there is an idea generally it won't let me get to sleep until I at least write it down! Clever mini. But my best ideas or problem solving with quilt comes with my daily walk with Miss Abby!

What a fun mini quilt. Best of luck as your daughter heads off to school.

Cute! I spent the day at the Community Festival with my booth and had a BALL! My booth was packed nearly all day. I'll write more about it on my blog, but wanted to thank you for your encouragement.

Yep, that happens to me - it's exciting, isn't it? Great result from your inspiration too!

Angie said...

Neat idea - please show the finished project when it's done, I'd love to see the perle cotton stitching!

Kate said...

Great idea. It will make a very cute mini.

I too think of things before going to sleep... and driving in the car. Great idea! Hope your DD had a good school year.
