Make-A-List Monday: Scrappy Saga

I was a busy girl last week. I'm dealing with my fair share (or more) of health issues, so that takes up quite a bit of my time. Add in my five little learners and I'm a busy girl. And sleep. I like sleep. But being organized has allowed me to get some things done, and that makes this mama happy!

My goals last week:

  • Complete the bodies of my 5 Hobbes softies - didn't happen
  • Piece some quilt backs (oooh, how exciting!) - DONE!
  • Piece Valentine's Mini - didn't happen
  • Cut scraps. Lots of scraps - didn't happen
I'm struggling with the scraps. I started pressing the pieces of fabric, and while I'm pressing them I'm thinking of the doll clothes I could make with them, or little zipper bags, or . . . .

So the scraps didn't get cut. I'm sorry to disappoint, but I just don't have it in me. I'm thinking if it's something very specific, like this apple quilt

Something manageable, but still using up at least my red, pink, green, orange (a smidge) and grey (or black and white) scraps. It might make a dent. Or maybe a strawberry quilt?

I'll get right on it, right? So here's what I'll get done this week, I hope:
  • Sew Valentine's Pillows
  • Cut fabric for new quilt patterns
  • Cut Feed Co. Weekender stuff
  • Work on Valentine's Mini
And anything else I can think of. Probably going to sort out my red, pink and green scraps so I can get started on one of these cute quilts.


  1. I hope you feel better soon! I'm still dealing with the same thing, so I feel for you. That Apple quilt is awesome!! I've had my eye on Strawberry Social for awhile, love it too :)

  2. Our minds think we can do it all right! But all we can do is put one foot in front of the other and everything we 'do' get done is more than what we had in the beginning! Yesterday I sorted, folded and stacked so neatly my greens, black/gray and 30's prints, all the while I kept thinking I should use this for that pattern, and oh this would make...blah blah blah!!
