Clean Up Time

This past weekend I looked at my cutting table and all I saw were a million (a little exagerated) scraps that needed to be folded and put away.  I thought, man, I do not want to fold and organize all those scraps, so I decided that I would make a scrap quilt.  I've made these before and in my opinion it takes just as long to make scrap quilts as it does to make one with a design.  Oh, well.  It was fun and it kept me from having to clean the mess up.  I'm looking at the table now though and I'm not sure I've made much progress.  This is what I have so far . . .


It seems like I did a little bit more than make two blocks . . . hmm . . . oh, yeah, I braided some more scraps and added them to my mini rug.  And there was the 10 miles I ran that pretty much wiped me out for the day. 

There was some envelope drawing using these:

I love my markers.  The Micron brand is really nice for very fine lines.  I need to get me some more of these markers.  One in every color, please!!

Jan-Maree over at Cherry Red Quilter awarded me a Stylish Blogger Award and next post I'll entertain you with 7 fun facts about me!!!  I know, you can hardly wait, huh?!  Thanks, Jan-Maree, I'm honored.  I'll also be passing on the award to other fellow bloggers so be sure and check out their blogs once I've posted.

As an aside to my fellow (oops, I'm not Australian!)  Aussie bloggers . . . I've discovered one of your television shows "The Strip" and I am loving the scenery!!!  Man, your water is GORGEOUS!!!  Go . . . NOW . . . and dip your toes in it for me.  I'm so jealous!!

Love your scrap quilting - dipped my toes as instructed but only i the backyard pool as it is a bit chilly to go to the beach today and the Gold Coast, where the strip is filmed is in Queensland.
Happy stitching!

I clean up about the way you do! In fact, that's on the top of today's agenda.....cleaning, not quilting. Thanks for helping me to feel normal. I wonder are all artsy type people like this?
