Quilting is more fun than Housework has us working on scraps.

I had a project that needed backing.
I took the piece of crumb fabric I had used to make bags out of.
These were blocks and pieces from many projects.
It was almost large enough for the backing fabric.
So, I'm using up some other project pieces and adding to it to make it large enough for the back of this project.
This will be a finish for a new project and a UFO.

Why haven't you heard from me?

So, we had a problem with a bathroom and needed it fixed. 
That was 8 weeks ago. 😒
Because of how long and how much stuff they stuck around the house, my husband had them clean the carpets.
But, they didn't do a great job.
The carpets are old here, but they should have been cleaned more.
Anyway, I've had my stuff piled for 2 weeks now and it was cleaned a second time yesterday.
With today being Thanksgiving, I'll not get to it until tomorrow at the earliest.
 

 

 
I can't do anything because of all the floor items on top of other things. 
Needless to say, I am ready to get back to my machine.


 

Happy Thanksgiving

 


I hope all have a wonderful day filled with family and friends.
I'm so thankful for all of you!
Have a blessed day.
