Crumbing along

As if I need one more thing to do, right?  I have 3 UFO's waiting to be quilted - all sandwiched, quilting started - and here I am playing with my scraps.  Well, I couldn't resist.  I always talk about how it's my mom's genes to keep everything - well, after paying what we pay for fabric I hate to throw any of it away.

Sew, when Jo of Jo's Country Junction decided to host a crumb along.  Well, I have to try it!  I mean, this isn't something I'm gonna learn at my LQS!!!

I was tired last night after doing some rearranging in my son's room (which, btw, moved all of his art supplies, shelf, and table into his room and OUT of the living room/great room - what a difference less clutter makes - I can breathe deeply again.  Oh - and I have enough space to lay out my yoga mat - lol!) and did not feel like sitting at the sewing machine.  Sew, I rested a while with a nice cider and a couple cookies while DH and DS played outside, watched a Masterpiece Mystery episode on Netflix, and decided to grab some scraps.

6.5" blocks
I have plenty of green, blue, and khaki solid strips left over from the bean bag quilts.  I decided that the green might be a better zinger than the blue - maybe, maybe not.  Definitely need to make the green geese bigger as they get a little lost in there.  I can see how these are like potato chips, as Jo says, very addicting to sit and play with all those scraps!

Check out more projects at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  Have a great day!
