I know you’ve seen these pieces from time to time on my blog. They are 2 1/2” square leaders and enders that I’ve pieced over about a year or so.

When I pieced the first one I had no idea where this was headed but an idea soon popped into my head. I spent part of yesterday putting the body together and now I just need to add borders.

I’m pretty pleased with how it looks so far. I really love scraps!

This is Mushroom the cat and his toy monkey Taffy. Made by my DD. He sleeps in an old mint tin and has taken up residence in my sewing room. Isn’t he the cutest?

What’s Working on Wednesday


Wow it’s the almost the end of July! I guess that means the summer is about half over. Besides lots of fabric shopping I can’t say I’ve finished much.

I finally found fabric and put a border on this


I also found a border for this quilt



and I finally ordered fabric to replace the ugly red curtain that has been over my kitchen sink. It was supposed to be temporary when we painted the kitchen about 3 years ago!


See I told you, lots of retail therapy!

I’m linking up with Quiltsy today.

Scrap Happy Saturday


I know I’ve said this before but I don’t have a lot of red fabric. It’s the color of the RSC for July. In fact I have so little red it’s combined with pink in my scrap bin!


Hopefully I can find enough scraps to make a few blocks, maybe even a mug rug.


Check out what everyone is making with red scraps here.

Enjoy your weekend!
