I like playing with scraps! (I bet you knew that already!) These pretty blue batik scraps leftover from Beautiful Blue have been calling to me this week.
There are strips and chunks and some bigger pieces, too.
I've been sewing some of the smaller squares and rectangles together
to make a blue improv slab of some kind.
Maybe it will turn into something like a mug rug or placemat.
Of course, some of these scraps will work perfectly for the 4 patches I've been making, like this:
But then, I saw Bonnie Hunter's new Leader and Ender Challenge, and I thought some of these scraps could work for those blocks, too!
Oops, did I just start a new project?
I love fresh green beans, and they're even better when they come out of your own garden! I've picked seven so far! :)
They were delicious steamed with a little butter, salt, and pepper!
I really liked this book, which was recommended by Karen of Karen Quilts, etc. Thanks, Karen!
I thought it was a really interesting story and well-written, too - a young college student interviews a dying Vietnam Veteran about his life and uncovers an old mystery.
Flowers are starting to bloom in my little front garden - the kind that come back every year for me - marigolds and sweet alyssum.
And finally, I loved this comic from the other day!
So true! I never did like roller coasters...
Enjoy the rest of your week, everyone!
