And it’s here again…. Amazing how quickly the months just roll by. Some say it’s going too fast & I guess as we get older it does seem to fly by fairly quickly. I just think that when you are busy doing the things you love it will fly by because you are enjoying every minute… “ Time flies when you are having fun” as the saying goes.
Well another month gone and another month of scrappy sewing 🪡. How I love ❤️ it. The month of July has a few birthdays and what better way to celebrate than to give something handmade.
This first bag made from scraps was meant for me but when I posted on Facebook & Instagram my cuz-in-law who lives in Sydney texted asking if she could buy it. Now I never sell any of my quilting projects. I’m brand new at this and there’s heaps & heaps of flaws in everything I make. So I told her she could have it as a gift from me as her birthday had just gone past. I also sent her a table centre as I was in the process of making that …
There are a few more ScrapHappy projects I have completed but that’s for the next post 🤩
ScrapHappy is open to anyone using up scraps of anything – no new materials. It can be a quilt block, pincushion, bag or hat, socks or a sculpture. Anything made of genuine scraps is eligible. If your scrap collection is out of control and you’d like to turn them into something beautiful or useful instead of leaving them to collect dust in the cupboard, why not join us on the 15th of each month? Either email Kate at the address on her Contact Me page, or leave a comment below. You can also contact Gun via her blog to join. We welcome new members. You don’t have to worry about making a long term commitment or even join in every month, just let either of us know a day or so in advance if you’re new and you’ll have something to show, so we can add your link. Regular contributors will receive an email reminder three days before the event.
