What is up with the Scraps?

I think my scraps have it in for me. No, really....... as you can see, I have been cutting hexagons like mad....I have made other scrap quilts, sent out scrap tumblers....scrap this! scrap that!.....but at night....

when it is quiet in the house


and no one is around.....



The lights are out! The lady of the house has finally gone to bed.



I think they scrap breed.

Yes, that is right, scrap breed......this is what will be in my garbage at night....



I think they crawl out and this is what I see in the morning...



All I am saying is......I cut out of my scraps, give scraps and what do I get but a load of scraps. What is up with all the scrap breeding???

They are mad at you for throwing them out and not doing anything with them.LOL, They feel left out so why not use them to stuff pillows, dolls toys, etc...

Gene Black said...

Mr Hubby is sneaking out and buying extra pieces of fabric you already have and cutting it into "chunks" that he tosses in the scrap bin while Barb is asleep! He knows it keeps her busy!

Tangos Treasures said...

LOL!

Stephanie said...

Barb, you have me laughing out loud. Scrap breed.....a great new term that I will have to adopt. Thanks for starting my day off in a great way! Steph

Tonya's Sewing Room said...

I agree! Somethings going on when I'm not looking.

Susan said...

You are so right...scraps multiply faster than dust bunnies!

Rumi said...

It does seem like scraps breed! I used to keep all the little scraps but I was getting overrun with them!

Deanna said...

Oh, you have my empathy. It is amazing how these things happen when we aren't looking, but I guess that is better than a fabric dearth, right?

Kaye said...

You are too funny!! You are going to miss those beautiful prints from the island, better stock up before you come home

kpaints said...

It is a neverending problem....you need to set some traps!!!

Sarcastic Quilter said...

I don't know what's up wit hit but when you figure it out, will you let me know the answer? :)

Needled Mom said...

Got me, but I have the same problem here.

Cyndi said...

Yep, that looked like my basket before I decided to give them away to good homes! LOL!!! We'll see how long it takes for that basket to fill up again!

XOXO,

Cyndi

I don't know how they breed, but I can guarantee you my 2.5" strips (all the scraps I save) have multiplied 3 times in the past year.

JustCindy said...

Lucky you! Scraps are wonderful. When you get started making hexagons it will eat up a bunch of those scraps. I would rather have scraps than yardage.

Pat said...

After seeing your neat little pile of strip scraps, I think it would be neat to wrap themn little at a time as you use scraps, into a cute little ball. I've seen rubber band balls, and that's what that reminded me of. lol
Happy Quilting!

Gosh, Barb. I was complaining about the same thing yesterday and Emily from Em's Scrapbag left me a message saying that in the middle of the night, while we sleep, the scraps have wild parties and multiply like bunnies! Now you say 'scrap breed', so it must be true.

Joanna said...

Very funny. Scraps must be the bunnies of the fabric world.

I love how your scraps breed and grow! They know they are loved and will be turned into something very beautiful with your gentle touch!

Hi barb!

Quick question for you...when you received your GO! did it come with the 4 1/2" square and the 2 1/2" square and the 2" square triangle...this is before you picked your three? Just wondering...
Thanks -Paulette
