Hello, hope you’ve all had a ScrappyHappy Christmas or seasonal celebration of your choice 🙂
Today’s the 15th of the month, the day my friend Gun in Sweden and I host ScrapHappy, a day for showing something made from scraps. And by the way, this is our third January ScrapHappy. Can you believe we’ve been at it so long?
You’ll remember (I hope!) that last time I decided I wasn’t happy with the way the scrappy quilt was coming along, and that I’d take out all the pale, pastel blocks for another quilt in due course. Well, of course, that left me with gaps, so I’d made another teal and another yellow/ orange block.
I had another look at what was left, and the paler version of the purple block was still pretty strong, so I pulled that out of the stack of pale blocks. So now I had two purples, two teals, two oranges and the black & white, brown, pink, blue, red and green. So I needed four more: another blue, green, red and pink. And here they are!
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 scraps is eligible. If your scrap collection is out of control and you’d like to turn them into something beautiful 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.
See you again, same time next month!
