It's been a busy week here, punctuated this morning with some pretty serious weeding in the front planters...
I wish I had taken a "before" picture, but basically everything that's brown was green! And to prove it....
...here's a picture of the 42 gallon contractor trash bag I mostly filled up with the efforts of my labors! Tomorrow I'll spread out mulch on the dirt and start on the next one.
But in the afternoon, I decided to take a little time to do some "mental health" sewing! You know what that is - sewing that you do that isn't something you "should" be working on, but something that stirs your imagination or satisfies a creative itch.
And here's what I made - a large block that will be made into a pillow cover to match my Moongate quilt! I used the leftover pieced strips from cutting the Moongate strip sets to make four log cabin blocks, then joined them together to create this piece. I am really loving the way it turned out! Next step will be quilting and then turning it into a pillow cover.
And that pile of Moongate scraps that has been sitting on my sewing table is now a part of history! And soon it will be gracing the bed in the guest room...
So what have you been sewing from your scraps this week?
