Scrap Happy September

A while back I noticed a fun bunch of people were posting the 15th of the month with write ups about fun scrappy projects they’ve been working on. The only restriction is that the fabrics have to all be scraps; no Yardage included! Here’s the list of people who sometimes write about their scrappy adventures.Continue reading “Scrap Happy September”

August OMG Check In

All in all August was a good month! Our Evacuation Alert was lifted so I was able to go to my studio for a few days and had sewing time almost every day.

Scrap Happy Day

This past few weeks has had me playing with scraps quite a bit more than normal. For anyone who has read my blog knows, I live in British Columbia, Canada.

Friday Fun

Had more fun today playing with scraps.

Another Day and A Finish

We are still on evacuation alert, but I don’t have any updated maps. The smoke is still too thick for them to get good photos to map it out. It was another day of watching helicopters and timing their runs, taking photos of these amazing pilots. Their job is hindered by the people rafting andContinue reading “Another Day and A Finish”

Another Flimsy Finished

The fun wonky log cabin blocks are now a finished flimsy! I’ll be finishing this on my next trip to the studio to donate to the Quilts for Lytton group of people who lost everything when their town burned to the ground. Keeping myself busy sewing is helping keep me from running outside every 5Continue reading “Another Flimsy Finished”

Sunday Sewing

I had some fun today making some blocks for a quilt to send to the Lytton Fire Drive. This is completely from my scrap bins. I just love the warmth of these brown, rust and tan scraps with the bits of red, blue, orange, yellow and green in the patterns. To me this quilt willContinue reading “Sunday Sewing”

Friday Finishing Fun

I’m sitting here with a lap full of fun today and counting this quilt as a finish. I was at the studio a week ago to spend quality time with my longarm. This quilt was quilted with running feathers using white Essentials thread from Connecting Threads. My Avante loves this thread! I used a beautifulContinue reading “Friday Finishing Fun”

I just had to makeContinue reading “Friday Finish”
