This week I decided to see if I could actually do something with this and clear out some of it.
I got on line and TildaWorld.com offers lots and lots of free patterns. After looking at them I discovered this pattern was a perfect solution to using up most of my scraps.
And a big surprise. I was able to get 300 of these 2.5 by 4.5 inch rectangles out of those scraps. Only goes to show that even little scraps can get used in a meaningful way. I've bagged them up into 10 sandwich bags of 30 each. I don't plan to start the Cozy Stripe Quilt yet, but when I do things should go really fast and they should make a really nice quilt somewhere in the 60 by 60 inch size with just a few long strip between rows.
For those fans of my daughter's pets. She earlier this past summer obtained 4 baby peacocks to keep Freddy her adult peacock company. Her hope was for a couple of ladies. Well things didn't work out so well. Only one is a female and the other three are males and already beginning to strut their stuff. Looks like Freddy will have lots of completion this coming summer.
And there she is. The boys all trying to get her attention.
