Welcome once again to ScrapHappy Day!
It’s the day my friend Gun in Sweden and I host ScrapHappy, a day for showing something made from scraps.
It’s been a very busy month, and my output of hexie flowers from the scraps generated by Days for Girls hasn’t been terribly impressive. I tell myself it’s the use of scraps, not how much you do that’s the key thing. This lot is the output, and six of those were made by someone on the DfG team.
Here’s the line up:
We now have quite a few hexie flowers, and I’ve made a bunch of black hexies to go between them, so I think for the foreseeable future I need to concentrate on joining them, or I’ll end up with buckets of flowers and a monumental task! Just to remind you, it’s a memory quilt, composed of fragments of the fabrics the sewing team has turned into the Days for Girls kits.
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 or useful 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).

Here’s a lovely scrappy contribution from Margaret, who doesn’t have a blog so I’m featuring her work here. She’s made the most beautiful file cover – I’m quite envious. Click on the image to see a larger version.
