Okay Ladies,

I'm delighted to report that not one but two peeps have requested my scraps!

As I said I sorted these in January after tidying the ever messy sewing store so I now have more (mainly pink and Green!!!  :devil:) to add to the bag.

I will split it down the middle and send to both Vege and Katykittykattykitt...

But be warned I'll want to see makes from them..Pics please!

And Low, rather than throwing away that FQ that has 1/2 cut away, why not donate them to gals like these?

Hahaha, it never occurred to me but my Dad used to stand and watch me cutting and sewing, while shaking his head at the absurdity! Makes me chuckle!

Oh Lowena you'd love me then - today I threw out an entire dustbin bag full of scraps, could barely lift it to get it downstairs!  Cleansing the spirit!

How small is too small you ask? No such thing as 'too small' when it comes to patchwork Vegegrow!

You see Lowena why I hang onto every scrap? In truth I made this years ago with young eyes and am unlikely to make another.  ;)

It's 1:12 scale I've been meaning to make a bed for it to go on. I did make 1:16 bed, painted tiny dowelling to represent iron and real brass rails and knobs (own design) but never got around to making the larger one. Ho hum one of these days!
