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.
Days Gone By. Now gracing someone else’s home without my consent, or worse still, decorating the council dump. Grrrr.
You will recall from a recent post that this lovely went missing, and it has not been recovered despite all efforts.
It took a day of misery, some tears and a very large bar of chocolate to bring me to my senses. It was a scrappy quilt. Those pieces would normally have been thrown away. All that was lost was my time and some bits of paper.
So, well, I started again.
I still had the photo of the arrangement of hexies I wanted to add to the bottom of DGB#1. So I just took that as my start point and cracked on. In the unlikely and miraculous event that DGB#1 turns up, I can just add this piece as originally planned. If not, well, it becomes the top of DGB#2. Simple!
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 🙂
