SCRAPPY KINDA DAY!!

Saturday I didn't feel like doing much sewing so I got my Go cutter out and started tackling my scraps.

  Using the 2 1/2" strip die I started hammering down on my mound of scraps.


I am happy to report that I did get enough scraps cut to make 57 of these blocks (made yesterday).

 
More scraps to cut up....tons more. I didn't even make a dent....(head is hanging low).....
 
I am sure most of you have seen my yellow Tree of Life...it has a gazillon leaves.
 
 I must be insane to do another one of these...
 
.so...
 
I have decided that every day I will do at least 21 leaves....why 21 you ask?
 
Because as I am stitching them down...I say just one more...one more....so I couldn't stop with just twenty...had to do one more.
 
So far I have 65 stitched down and that is not even scratching the surface...poor me.... (head hanging low again)
 
 
---------------------------------------------
 
So the winner of the pattern is Sherry Von Fumetti.......  I will send the pattern right over.
 
Now back to the Tree of Life

Oh Barb, that is a great idea, get those scraps organized and you even went one step farther, you made blocks. Hmmm, your leaves sound like my candy, just one more!

That's a lot of scraps. I sometimes make up kits for a later time. Otherwise, I can't cope with them. What some scraps from my pile?

My scraps overwhelm me. I may just bite the bullet and cut them up to uniform sizes and store them that way. Or not..... =)
