Ladies, you two very patient Ladies...

I have forced the issue of my procrastination in sending you scraps...

By upturning the overflowing basket on my dining room table!



Nothing more can be done without my clearing this mountain of fabric...either back into its overstuffed basket or in two mail envelopes.

These are scraps ladies (not 1/2 a FQ), odd shapes and some very small so be prepared I shall be interested to see what you make from them (and anything over a half inch wide is usable even if only on a string quilt or applique landscape)

Thy time draws nigh Ladies...Prepare!!!

Blimey, if it takes you this long to send off a couple of parcels Imi, you'd better start writing your X**s card now  :D :D

Thank you so much Imi  What yummy fabrics ( and a little pressie  0_0)... I just sat and sorted them into colours.. I recognise a good few of them and they are gorgeous in real life...( mind you it does make me want to dash of and buy metres of batiks.. the colours  :loveit:)

Parcels arrived  Imi

WOW !!! That was quick for parcel 2nd Class...Bravo, Royal Mail!!!

Glad you like them, there are some weeny triangles in there, in Oakshott Cottons (Drool) cut offs from Star cornerstones I have been making, If you can make something from those (and I'm thinking that would have to be with applique only)   I will be very impressed!! I'm still making them so you might get another small envelope full in a week or two!

You could make some mini quilts ala Paula Doyle ??

Only just seen this, so thank you  :) I fear the missed parcel card I got home to earlier is this, means I'll have to ask someone to go and rescue it from the sorting office for me  :ninja:
