Cra cra crazy

Putting a binding on with the glue baste method. I have to tell you I've  glued my sticky  fingers to everything. Don't think I'll be doing it this way again. One good thing about the sticky fingers they stuck to my drink.
Trying to layout this cute little quilt, but I don't have my design wall up yet.  Heck I  can't even find the wall.  Changing rooms has really been a pain. I did make a major decision to get rid of two totes large totes of scraps.  

I'm just so sick of the overwhelming feeling when I look at all my stuff.  So I'm trying  to really get rid of some stuff. Not even sure if anyone even stops by here anymore but I'm  thinking I may just start posting some giveaways here. I mean magazines I've never opened.  Patterns out the wazoo. Yep if you're reading this stay tuned in will start going thru  patterns and such soon.

Sew Sew Sewing along

making this from a kit. It's not something I would have picked out formyself. But a co worker has asked me to do this for her. An ailing Aunt had got this kit, which is dated 2002, to make for her or one of her daughters. So here I go.

look I have one fused and stitched.  Whoot whoot wish me luck only 11 large ones and 12 small ones to go.
All the single hearts done.
Been going though things and I found this box of scraps.After taking off the top layer of some poly cotton stuff, LOOK all original 30 fabrics. I got this box at an Estate auction maybe 6 or 7 yrs ago and it has just been sitting there taking up space. This auction was the estate of an 80 something widow. I know she didn't quilt, it was her mother that quilted. She had all these boxes of quilting stuff sitting in her garage and they had been there for years, since her mothers passing.  There are blades for a dresdan cut and triangles,, squares and diamonds all cut. Whoot whoot what a score. And I didn't even know I had it.
