    My 'Scrappy' Week of Sewing

    It's winter time, the weather is dismal so what could I do but SEW ! This week I had so much fun doing scrap blocks. Tipped out my scrap tub onto the kitchen bench and sewed happily away.

    This is what I got achieved for the week.

    Photo 1 - my usual day sewing, scraps everywhere !

    Photo 2 - got all these blocks done for a scrappy quilt, quite a few more to come to make the quilt a decent size

    Photo 3 - some scrappy (or rainbow) fishes, will make a cute kids quilt

    Photo 4 - 'auditioning' a block which I hope to use to make one of my selvage quilts and I think it will work out fine

    I also finished off a couple of swap quilts and managed to get another swap quilt top sewn ready for quilting.

    Now I have 3 whole days away from the sewing machine - oh my, I wonder how long before the withdrawal symptoms kick in

    Enjoy and thanks for looking

    Wow, you had a very productive week! I am very jealous. I love the "audition" block and I agree it will make a delightful quilt. My 7 year old daughter, Bridget, states that the rainbow fish quilt needs a cat in the corner trying to get the fish.

    Very nicely done. Funny to hear that it's winter and cold there. I'm sitting my air conditioned living room because it's too hot to go out.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    All are very nice though my favorite is the first one, too. The quilt will be striking when it's finished.

    Very good use of scraps. I need to start using mine again. The first one is my favorite too.

    Nice work. Not sure where you are in Aus. I am in Sydney and we are soooooo over all the rain over the past weeks.

    Winter has really kicked in here.

    Love the first one!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Great job on scrappies, they are my favorites. We are having a record breakingly hot summer here. Seems I always get more quilting done in the winter. The important thing is to enjoy which ever season is happening. Sure makes the world seem small that we can so easily talk to each other half way around the world.

    I'm inspired ... now to get motivated! Just love those fishes and I agree with EvelynJ that there needs to be a cat in that quilt anticipating dinner .... or maybe it could be a shark! LOL
    Great Work!!!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Beautiful blocks! Made me laugh to read its winter there -- here in Oregon it only recently became spring, and then quickly into sizzling 90 degree temps a couple of days ago. My sister outside Melbourne (Jennie) has a friend named Lynn who quilts wonderfully, so I especially enjoyed your post! Your work is gorgeous!
