A Rediscovery

While I was tidying up, and stripping down my stash, I rediscovered a project I had started in September of 2007: Sylvia's Bridal Sampler.  Of the 140 completely different 6" blocks, I had completed 65.  Until today.  Here are #66 & #67.

And remember this thing?  I brought home this wooden box a couple of weeks ago.  I've since painted it black, sanded off some "wear" marks, and labelled it: Scraps.  Until now, I've tossed scraps into a plastic bag, but now I have this nice tidy box to put them in!


  1. What a fantastic idea for all your scraps. So much neater and nicer than a plastic bag. I shall certainly be on the lookout now for something in a similar manner. Love the blocks too. Glad that they didn't end up being given away. It will be great when it is finished and with your newly manicured house I hope you will find the perfect space for it.

  2. That's it - I'm getting rid of my plastic bags and finding something COOL for my scraps! You are such an inspiration! And yeah, I know I'm about 3 weeks behind on your blog, but I was on vacation!
