Hot, Sultry, Humid days in the good ole' Summertime!
We are baking this week in the metro St. Louis area with indices well above 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
I can't think of anything better to do during this heat than to.........
ORGANIZE YOUR SCRAPS!
Well, maybe you could nap in the air conditioning
with a puppy like Lilly Mae......
that would be good too..........
but, I digress............
Let's be honest.......
What is keeping you from organizing your fabric scraps?
I want answers!
Please leave them for me in the comments below.
Various color mediums are organized
in the stores for us......
So they can be found easily!!!!!
That's the whole key for scrap organization!
If you haven't gone through your stash and scraps lately,
you will probably be very surprised at what you find?
And, hopefully, you will be inspired?
It's just like a trip to the fabric store!
Or a reunion of old friends!
Find an organizational system that will allow you to start working
from your scraps and stash.
I in no way want to keep you all from Fabric stores, and quilt shops....
we NEED them!
But, give it a shot...........get organized and start making some
super scrappy quilts!
OK......off my soap box now.
Did you all know my friend Alycia of Alycia Quilts
is hosting another QOV Mystery quilt?????
And, yes, I am finding time to participate myself!
Alycia claims the clues take very little time to make!
I am holding you to that Alycia!
I recently came across this while shopping..........
Let's share our passion!
LET'S TEACH OTHERS TO QUILT!
In other news..........that deals with my family.....
since this is my blog and somewhat of a diary of my life......
Sadly, I had to say goodbye to my
beautiful cousin Kim
this past week.
She had a hard hand dealt to her in life,
dealing with the loss of her young son.....
being diagnosed with a debilitating disease....
and yet, she chose to live her life in the most eloquent and
I will miss your enchanting smile,
our long midnight talks,
scrabble games, and
conversations about politics and cooking.
You were a great cousin and friend.
Til we meet again, Goddess of the Universe.
(That was her nickname....all in fun!)
At Kim's funeral, I was able to visit with some family I
don't get to see all that often.
It was nice being able to visit with my cousins,
Judy, Charlotte, and Sharon
among many other family members
for a while.
Stay tuned next week for Clue #2
Thanks for all of the encouragement!
Keep on Quilting!
Keep on Quilting!
