Oh Scrap! : Time to Sew

Lately, time spent in my sewing room has been few and far between.  I hate when life gets in the way and the thing you really want to do the most just never seems to fit into your schedule.



But I do have all the components to an entire quilt top all ready for assembly.
I don't even think I am going to lay it out on the design wall.  As soon as I am able, I am just going to enjoy the hum of my machine and let the scrappy blocks land where they may.


*********************************************************

It is now your turn to share what you are making with scraps.  Here are the details for linking up: 

  • This linky party is for any scrappy project - It can be in-process or a finished piece.
  • You can link up your blog post (not your homepage please) or Instagram photo from the past week that features your use of scraps.
  • If you are linking to a blog post, I ask that you link back to my blog somewhere in your post. So if you are writing about scraps, just get into the habit of including a link as there will be a linky party available every week!
  • If you are using Instagram, please use the hashtag #ohscrap.
  • This is a party so remember to socialize and comment on the posts of others.
  • Following my blog is not necessary but it sure would be great if you do!

Oh, I can sing harmony on that whole life-is-cutting-into-my-sewing-time song! At least you've got some pretties lined up for when you can actually get to your machine. Looks like it's going to be an amazing quilt!

Sorry to hear that you haven't had much time to sew. Here's hoping that you get to play with those dark multi prints soon!

Love your scrappy colors! I know what you mean about life...I've had some busy weeks at work!

Not much interferes with my sewing, I'm fortunate in that aspect. I'll be back next week to see what you decide on the design. Thank you for hosting the link party.

Life interferes far too much. LOL I haven't sewed since Thursday...I spent the weekend volunteering and tonight I'm trying to catch up on e-mails and blog reading.

Preeti said...

You have the best scraps :-)

I finally got to putting some of the string blocks together from the soscrappy challenges at a quilt retreat this last weekend. I have 2 more blocks that need to be made.
Although that's not going to make it near the size I really intended, I just don't know if I am up to doing anymore. LOL
