ScrapHappy February: A bit of everything

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.

I have a mixed bag to show today, having been pretty busy with scrapbusting this past month. As well as the fabric bowl you’ve seen very recently…

The teapot for Dale that you’ve seen slightly less recently…

I also have progress to show on the hexie quilt I’m making for Days for Girls. I haven’t shown that for a while, so hopefully the before and after shots will speak for themselves.

Before

And after

Just a bit of progress, then! Now I look back at everything, I’ve got quite a lot of scrappiness done this month. More lovely scraps saved for a second chance at something useful, beautiful or both.

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.

Next month, I’ll still be on our forthcoming road trip, so I may not have so much to show.
