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 Block 13 of the Hopscotch quilt for Days for Girls. I haven’t got a lot done on this quilt in the last month, but one block is better than no blocks. I’ve also traced and cut the pattern for the patchwork tote I’ll be making as another raffle prize, but bits of paper doesn’t make an interesting photo, so for that you’ll have to wait for a month where there’s more on that project to show you.
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).
Today we are also welcoming Jule to the group. She tells me she has a lot of scraps that need dealing with, so I’m looking forward to seeing what she has for us.
