Well it’s time again and as I missed last month I simply could not miss this month …
The runner that I have made is called my 2020 WRAP… coz it has all the scraps from all my 2020 projects.
As I’ve made a fair few quilts and gifts over the year I don’t have them here with me to look at or feel. This runner will be a reminder of all things made last year.
I haven’t actually set it out making sure colours match … I’ve just pulled them out of the stacks of scraps I have now and free motion quilted them on the batting. It’s turned out bright and has a stained glass look to it which I love.
Surprise surprise… the post this month is Christmassy 😋
I’ve been making small gifts for my friends for Christmas as I do each year …
I had a couple of tea towels (Christmas ones) from last year & a few lengths of Christmas ribbon which I love but will not use again as a decoration…. So I decided to do this ….
The ribbon has been recycled again into a Christmas frame 🖼️
A very Christmassy ScrapHappy Post 🥰

October is here !!! And it’s ScrapHappy time again. The speed with which the month flies by makes me catch my breath and I’m always happy to reach the 15th coz that’s the only way I make time to post !
Nothing extraordinary this time … I’m making a baby rug for a little boy from a quilt cover I had previously made but seldom use.
Its only a few blocks taken from the original cover and I’ve got bits left over for other stuff … but this makes a perfect ScrapHappy post.

This is worth a blog as it’s something very close to my heart ♥️
Motorcycle Trip from Melbourne (Victoria)- Perth (Western Australia) 9091kms in total & the places we visited across the country stole my heart. This place in particular was amazing!!!
And so a piece from my write up at the time ….
“Day 10 CONTINUES FURTHER….
The icing on the cake …. THE LACE PLACE …The Margaret Blackburn Collection of Lace Since 1650.
There was a whole room devoted to LACE … almost all of it hand made and dating back to 1650…. an unbelievable collection of absolutely spectacular Lace. Anyone knowing me knows my love for Anything Lace … the delicate nature of the work along with the beauty that goes with it gives whatever it’s attached to an ethereal look & feel. Lace as far as I’m concerned would make the most drab outfit worthy of a second look and when you touch anything with lace it will make you immediately use a very gentle touch….. obviously I could go on & on about Lace & why I love it 🥰 but these pictures will give you some idea of the rapture I felt going through this place ….. I leave a piece of my heart in Hyden and every time I think of this place my mind will fill with the beauty of the LACE ♥️”
I could go on & on with pictures as I have at least 100…. But you can understand what I mean.
