Scraps, Stash, & Slow Sunday Stitching

Eighteen days until spring.  Has this been the longest winter EVER?!?!?  Aren't you sick of talking about how cold it is and how much snow has fallen?  Ugh...

Scrappy Mug Rug.

I got on the Split Nine Patch band wagon as my "leader/ender" project just as Bonnie Hunter announces this year's new Leader & Ender: Lozenges

This month's Quilter's Club package came in the mail this week.  All blue? two months in a row?  Hm.  Rethinking this club thing.

This week's Slow Sunday Stitching is going to be about closing the turning opening on my table runner, sewing on the buttons, and starting the quilting.

Hubby and I went thrifting yesterday.  I found this ginormous jar.  When I brought it home (and it was freakin' heavy!) I didn't have a clear picture of what I was going to do with it.

Oh wait!  Storage for scraps for 15 Minutes of Play!

Hubby found a soft guitar case that required some stitching.  Uh...mending?  Seriously? first thing this morning I glued down the trim, clamped it down, and then stitched it down.  He is my slave - FOREVER!


  1. Mending? I don't think! You have important creative work to do! LOL
    I have a big jar like that and I collect all my pretty threadbits in there.
    Enjoy stitching your tablerunner today...thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching!

  2. Lovely new jar and too funny about the mending.

  3. Oh I could use a dozen of those jars! I love my little binding clips but please don't let the out that they can be used to mend. LOL Your little mug rug is cute!
