I need to do something with all these scraps. And this is only 6 of the bins. There are so many more. Eeek! Each time I start something I just end up making more scraps. They are like bunnies!
I spent a lot of time this weekend quilting my broken diamonds quilt, then impatiently waiting for the power to come back on during a 3 hour power outage, gardening, taking a Sunday drive to a nursery, buying a tree, planting a tree and finally, I made one Road to Fortune block. Because I can use scraps. Not only can I use lots of colourful scraps but I can use white scraps too. I have a bin of just white scraps too. They need serious attention!
The design wall looks a little empty but I finished quilting a quilt, dealt with grass over taking a flower bed and divided a bunch of irises. As well as a helping Husband with the tree. All in all, I did get a lot done.
This is the February block in "That Stash Bee". I already made my bee blocks and mailed them off but this block was a lot of fun so I am making more of them. The block takes a a lot of time but they are really quite striking. I am planning to make at least one block a week until I have enough for a quilt. That's the plan.
I hope I am not making people still snowed under with all my gardening talk. We have had a very mild winter on the west coast and we have snowdrops, crocuses, and primroses in bloom. The rhubarb is even poking out of the ground. It is AMAZING! But that also means I have to get my butt outside and deal with the flower beds. Husband is in full early spring farming mode. Hence the tree. It was on his list.
