chasing the clouds away....Ebby and I are both longing for some green grass... and soft summer breezes. Flowers would be good too! Today we have a rainy day, good for snoozing, baking cookies, and playing with scraps. Instead I'm doing laundry, working on taxes, and going to look at a house in my village. Yes, I'm toying with the idea of leaving my little cottage and the cottage life. The reasons are very complicated, so lets just say "I'm exploring ALL my options *VBS*". The house in question has gone into foreclosure, which really helps the incentive to buy vs. rent. Luckily I'm not an impulse buyer...LOL. I've walked around the yard(in the rain)taken pictures from all sides and scheduled a viewing. It appears to have been quite neglected in the outside grooming, and I'm prepared for the inside to be equally so...we shall see.
I spent yesterday at Jeans, sewing and chatting. I'm back to sewing rug strips, and have a new circular rug started.
I wanted to mention about the fabric,despite the large pile, there are only a few half yard pieces in the pile and nothing larger than a half yard. For several years now, I primarily buy FQs or half yard cuts when buying fabric. I have a large stash of bigger yardages and one yard pieces. Those I use for setting blocks, backings and borders. The bulk of my piecing is done with scrappy in mind. It's what makes me happy.
So the bulk of what I've culled and will cut(soon)is less than a FQ or half yard. I'm not sure why I hang onto those instead of "ending it" when I make the first cuts, but I do. They don't take up much space, but eventually it gets to be too much of them and not enough variety in the scrap bag.And 2.5" strips get used in so many things *VBS*
