ScrapHappy October

More ScrapHappiness, more pastels again, and this time I’ve made a serious dent in the green pile!

Once again, it’s the day my friend Gun in Sweden and I host  ScrapHappy, a day for showing something made from scraps.

This month I made scrappy blocks in pale green and pale red, and I really like how they look. The red especially contrasts very well with the strong red of my earlier scrappy block.

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 scraps is eligible. If your scrap collection is out of control and you’d like to turn them into something beautiful instead of leaving them to collect dust in the cupboard, why not join us on the 15th of each month?

Either email me at the address on my 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.

Here are the links for everyone who joins ScrapHappy from time to time (they may not post every time, but their blogs are still worth looking at):

    The soft colours are so pretty. I’m about to post my scrappy post.

      Yes, I really enjoyed using these lighter scraps. Hopefully there’ll be enough for another block or two. I’ll nip over and check out your post – and see you Tuesday 17th 🙂

      • nettyg says:

        it’s very wet here and is forecast to be until Wednesday, and it looks like wet all down your coast. If it’s easier/safer for you to go directly to Kyogle and bypass me, I’ll completely understand.

        No, we’re in the car, with the bike on a trailer behind. I didn’t want to ride so far in the rain just after a bout of pneumonia! We’ll see you soon 🙂

  7. kathyreeves says:

    Love both of these! Are you making all your blocks a certain size, or just going with whatever comes out?

  8. chrisknits says:

    Please add me! Thanks.

    I’m not usually a big fan of green blocks/quilts (I know, I’m weird) but the idea of pale green scraps together in a block sounds delicious. And then to see how your blocks turned out! I’m looking forward to seeing how all these blocks come together in the end.
