ScrapHappy November: Not too bad!

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.

Here’s where I’d got to, having, started again.

And now, this is where I am. Not bad at all, though I say so myself. If I can keep going at the same sort of rate I’ll catch up soon! It’s two hexie flowers short of the original width, and of course, I still have to sew in that section on the left,

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 🙂

  1. Brilliant… glad you haven’t let the setback set you back at all 🥰

    Lovely colours, very pretty

    Well done for getting back on that horse!

      It’s just annoying that I have this eye problem just as I’d made some good progress. The affected one is too blurry to let me do fine hand sewing, and even machine sewing’s a bit of a stretch…

  4. I admire your resilience, and productivity. Btw… your quilt, placemat and coasters are amongst our belongings safely packed in the ute.

  5. So impressed with you getting back to this project!

  6. Lynda says:

    These are beautiful… I do miss the little kangaroo hexie. Was he a one off, or do you have another scrap with one on it? 🙂

  7. Kate, I’m really sorry you had to start over. It’s looking beautiful though, as you put more scraps to work on version two.

  8. […] Joining Kate for her monthly Scrap Happy get together. […]

  9. Looking good Kate.
    I have been re-purposing some rusty nails this month:
    Hope that eye behaves itself and the operation is a huge success.

    You are just an amazing person. There you are with a poorly eye, and best wishes for the op and I hope your Dad is ok, and a nasty person made off with your work, and yet you are back in the saddle with this really very pretty hexie quilt. The world needs more Kates. xx

      Awww, you’re so kind.
      I’m debating going to the fancy dress shop and getting a pirate eyepatch and big black hat, so people will stare at that instead of the enormous doohickey on my eye.

  11. rutigt says:

    Well done! Has your eye being better? You must be careful not tiring it out!

  12. It’s coming along nicely and I can’t say how sorry I am that you have to have surgery on your eye! I’m hoping it goes well and lets you play with your toys once more. I’ll keep good thoughts for you.

  13. claire93 says:

    onwards & upwards! looking good.

  14. So sad that the original has not turned up, but it’s lovely to see that you are making such good progress with #2

  15. magpiesue says:

    Such cheerful colors and prints! This is going to be just as delightful as the first version was. I’m sorry to hear about the prospective surgery. I feel the same way you do when it comes to sharp objects and eyes. You are in my prayers.

  16. Your making great progress with your scraps and redoing 🙂 Sharon

    • katechiconi says:

      I feel a sense of ‘needing’ to do this to replace the other one, but at the same time, it’s perhaps more enjoyable because I’m getting so much support from everyone!

  17. looking great,it is wonderful how you recovered from the loss and have just kept going. You need to give the eyes a rest, give them a chance to heal, there will be time to continue after the surgery. Sending you healing wishes.

  18. gwenniesgardenworld says:

    You have been working hard despite your eye problem !!

  19. Moira says:

    Lovely start to the new version of your quilt.

  20. Joanne S says:

    I do like the hexies. The dark fabric sets them off nicely. I’ve missed 2 scrap happy posts, been out of commission. But I am back in the swing! 🙂
