I periodically do some reorganization of my sewing studio. Over this last year now of being pretty much home bound due to the Covid virus I have worked on better organization and the realization I have way too much stashed fabric and scraps. I tend to be frugal so scraps have been used to make many charity quilts and also given to a friend that also does charity wheel chair lap quilts. While the stash has diminished some there is still lots to deal with.
The goal/plan is to empty this once overfilled wired storage basket. It would be nice to put some nice new fabric it in. Time to move out the old and in with the new.I finished this quilt top for my charity group on Sunday afternoon. It really didn't make much of a dent in the stash. However, I am not done I am working on another one some what similar in pattern with the hopes that it will actually leave me with that empty storage bin.
This quilt top will really be scrappy, probably not quite as pretty as the above finished one, but often what looks not so appealing turns out to really be fun and interesting. Since I need 25 of these blocks to make a 55 by 55 inch quilt top plus have enough to cut bindings for it too, I may just complete my goal.This little beauty, one of my daughter's many chicken has been named Houdini. She is one of 10 little sisters that were a FFA project for one of my grandsons. She and her sisters were moved into the larger pen with the ducks which has no netting roof on it. So my daughter clipped all their winds so they could not fly out. Well, thus the name Houdini given her, as she is up and out and back in again over the fencing all day long. They do lay lovely little pale green eggs about half the size of a regular chicken egg. So they are productive little hens. And no she is not near a road in the background that is path provided for the boys around their property when they were younger to ride their bicycles and scooters. They live on 3 acres out in the country and it provided the boys with a safe play area right in their own yard.
