I think I have discovered a flaw in the laws of Quilting Physics. Think about your scraps and your yardage. Why is it that when you have some gorgeous yardage, and you put it into that special project there is just nothing left. Nothing. But the scraps, you keep on using them, and using them ... and using them ... and they just never go away! I don't understand it? I was cutting up some pieces in my scrap box the other day, and I found some more fabric from my first ever project. I can't believe I haven't used it all up yet. I think it's reproducing!
But still, it's fun to use up scraps. I was quilting on the quilt in the picture last night, and as I was working my way around it, I found myself reminiscing about the fabrics and the other quilts they'd been in. These blocks really have a LOT of my quilting history in them. Fabric from my DJ quilt, fabric that Linda has given to me, ones that I purchased in Paducah, fabric from my childrens quilts and other treasured projects, and other fabric that I can't even imagine how they found their way into my stash. Judging by my scrap stash, I'll be scrap quilting for a good long time yet, thank heavens I'm learning to love it!
And another thing to thank the heavens for ... it rained yesterday. Almost all day! And it's raining again today, and likely will tomorrow too! We need it so badly.
Marty and the kids were out in the backyard during one of the breaks between showers, and had an opportunity to snap some of the local wildlife. Aren't the colours just gorgeous?
I have so many chores to get thru today before I head to work, so I better go face the day. x o x
