I’ve always enjoyed playing with scraps, but have been making a concerted effort to use up my stash and my scraps since the Pandemic began. I have purchased some fabric in person when storefronts finally re-opened, but find shopping on line to be an imperfect solution when the stores are closed.
These past two weeks have seen some real scrappy fun going on in my sewing space.
The colour for the RSC for January is red. For the first bit of scrappy fun, I found some leftover bits of flannel with fun snowmen and winter themes on the bits and pieces.
I started playing with these sweet bits and pieces and came up with not one, but two fun, winter themed table runners which meets my commitment to the Table Scraps Challenge (the theme is snowmen) for the Month. 😉
I also had fun playing with scraps to make my project for the PQ 13.1 Challenge;
Another scrappy project for this month has been my project for a fun Blog Hop that focuses on using our scraps.
These fun piles of scraps and leftovers allowed me to play and do two pattern tests:
This month also is the start of the SAHRR hosted by Quilting Gail. Here is the Schedule from Gail’s blog:

The SAHRR last year allowed me to use up an orphan block, leftover bits from other projects and memory invoking scraps from the bins. I’m hoping this year will be the same 😉
My SAHRR will be made using the block I made for a pattern test (can’t reveal it just yet 😉) using these scrap pieces of fabric and some yardage:
So far (without talking about the squirrel projects Samantha, my inner squirrel project is coercing me to do!) January is starting off to be an incredible month of fun and a lot of scrappy goodness.
