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.
Not huge progress to show you this month, on account of all the stripping, filling, sanding, painting, grovelling and climbing ladders that life has held recently. However, I did get a bit more stitching together done on the memory quilt from the scraps generated by Days for Girls. Even though it’s mindless work for the evenings, there were days when I was too tired even for that.
The ‘diamond’ on the far right is waiting to be sewn in, which will probably happen tomorrow at my regular Saturday DfG session, as well, I hope, as a bit more progress.
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). We have a new member this month, do go and take a look at what Bekki has for us.
