Happy Thanksgiving, may your day be blessed with love ones and friends.
Remember the rolls of adding machine paper… I have ,had some just sitting around collecting dust. I hated to just throw them out as the old machine no longer worked. As I was trying to clean up my sewing room some, I came across these rolls again.” Look” I said to myself,either you do something with these things or pitch them. Putting them back is not allowed…. Here’s the product of, not allowed ,to put them back.
I pulled out the little scraps that were piling up. Sewed them to the paper that I cut into lengths of 8 inches. Then trimmed the sides. Nice little strips were soon piling up.
Then I discovered I had these left over strips. Perfect for this little quilt top. Now it will make its way to a group of ladies who finish them for charities.
My daughter gave me an idea of making a tic tac toe quilt top out of the strips. I think I will for I still have some left over.
Then I put together two other baby quilt tops. I had a really bad headache so I had stop sewing a top that required thinking which I wasn’t up too… 😕 but just sitting around just made me go into self pity mode.
Now I have a box full of quilt blocks to sew up in a hurry ,if the need arises. I pulled it out ,found some blocks ,Then sewed in a robotic fashion. These didn’t take any brain!!
After a few days I went back to working on this top.
I still didn’t finish the sewing room …when picking up the scraps left over ,from the little scrap strips made from the machine paper. I made these blocks.. Not sure how I will use them but they are stacked nicely on a shelf,instead of scraps hanging out of a box.
And is the sewing room clean yet…..well, part of it is!🤓
Have a great week, friends!
