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.
Last time, I showed you the proposed next two rows of Days Gone By. You can see the two down the bottom are missing their black hexie ‘spacers’.
One of the rows has now been completed and stitched in, and the next row is waiting to have its black hexies added before I carry on there.
We’re very nearly at the point where the piece is square. Once I’m there, I can decide how much larger it needs to be and can start ‘sewing around the world’, or adding rows all round the outside instead of just at the bottom. Still sooooo many hexies available, and ever-increasing bags of small scraps from the Days for Girls team. The next one will be quicker – it has to be or I’ll never get anything else done.
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 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). If you’ve copied this list from previous posts, please use the one below as it’s the most up to date 🙂
