Scrappy Saturday

I've finished my green quilt, but it's too late in the day to get a decent photograph, so I'll try to get one tomorrow. I've used a few more of the scraps, together with some blue and red scraps I had left to make another ring binder cover. These are a great way of using up scraps without having to think too much about  plans and designs. I've still got some green scraps left, so I'll have to get my thinking cap on for ideas - I'm hoping to get some inspiration from some of the other people taking part in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.



It's been a bit of a frustrating week. The kitchen fitters were due last Monday to start on the new kitchen, so we busied ourselves clearing the kitchen before we went away for a few days last Thursday. Then on Thursday morning, just before we left, we had a telephone call telling us that the fitters couldn't start until next Monday, the 14th. We were not happy bunnies. So, of course, this week things have slowly crept back into the kitchen, and we've spent time hunting for things we weren't expecting to need. So it will have to be completely cleared out again tomorrow. Luckily we've got our camper van to do the cooking in whilst the kitchen is out of action.

Christopher is going to be largely in charge of the clear up though, as I have a day's workshop booked at Midsomer Quilting, entitled Threadplay with Dawn Cameron-Dick; I'm looking forward to it very much as well as the excuse to get out of clearing up the kitchen!

Love the ring binder cover...very pretty and a great way to use up scraps.

Sorry to hear about your troubles with the kitchen fitters. The kitchen is got to be the hardest room to renovate...there is never any "down" time. Hope it all goes smoothly when they arrive.

Interesting way of using up scraps.
