Scrap Dancing


While I've been telling you I haven't found any discarded goodness recently, I've realised I have unwittingly lied. I have found discarded goodness of another kind.

Recently, while visiting a fabric shop, I discovered a garbage bin full of scrap fabric. Just strips. Tossed away without a second thought.

By now you should absolutely know that I know no shame. Waste not want not, right?! So I dutifully retrieved all the decent sized strips and even some smaller ones. And I've been adding them to the Doctor's cushion which is slowly, slowly, ever so slowly coming together. See here?

The smaller scraps are for the Doctor's crafting. To stick on cards. Or wherever he wants.

Now I can stop whining about not finding any garbage. Here ends my blog for today.

I've been away for a while and am finally managin to get through all the blog posts.

I thought about you the other day when as we're cleaning out my grandmas place and got rid of quite a few things on council clean-up.

Ps - i LOVE the wonkiness of this quilt. Screw the sewing teacher for trying to stifle your creativity!
