Oh Scrap! - Slow Progress

 Usually once the weather turns cold, I am ready to spend lots of time in my sewing room.  This year has just been too long and all I want to do is snuggle under a quilt and stare at the TV.

But I did manage to cut and sew two more pixel blocks.  These take sooo long to dig through my scraps and cut these tiny squares.  I know there are ways to make this faster but I am trying to use up my smallest bits.  

I wish I could share with you the project.  

It is slowly taking shape but it is a gift so I don't want to give it away.

I also started a new scrap project.  I don't know if this will be an RSC quilt or if I will just pick a few coordinating colors and leave it at that.  I am making these from 2" strips so the blocks measure 12".

Once I get the three blocks planned in red completed, I can say my red color bin is at a very manageable level!  Now I can focus on the next color...

What scrappy projects are you working on?


It is now your turn to share what you are making with scraps.  Here are the details for linking up: 

  • This linky party is for any scrappy project - It can be in-process or a finished piece.
  • You can link up your blog post (not your homepage please) or Instagram photo from the past week that features your use of scraps.
  • If you are linking to a blog post, I ask that you link back to my blog somewhere in your post. So if you are writing about scraps, just get into the habit of including a link as there will be a linky party available every week!
  • If you are using Instagram, please use the hashtag #ohscrap.
  • This is a party so remember to socialize and comment on the posts of others.

Your little squares piece is just adorable; love the scrappiness, Cynthia. It takes quite a while to pick through and cut those squares i am sure--nice work Hugs from afar, stay safe Julierose

I'm intrigued by your pixel project, and I bet I'm not the only one! Looking forward to when you can show it to us. Meanwhile, I'm with you on just snuggling under a quilt and watching TV - sometimes that's the only place my brain will go! Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!

The pixel blocks are so bright with the contrasting black. Looks like it will be worth the effort. Glad that your red bin is under control. It is a never ending cycle of fabric fun.

I completely relate to your comment about snuggling under a quilt watching TV. I used to hate to sit around watching TV but this year has just been the worst! I seem to spend time in my sewing room in spurts, a few days here & there and then a drought :-/ 2021 has GOT to be better...right?

more and more this past month or so I am beginning to want to slow down and hibernate for the winter - I'm getting burned out on pushing myself to stay busy I think

Like all your scrappy squares. So pretty.
Have a great day!

Ooh, we love a mystery! Don't envy you prepping those little blocks though. I am ready for a good movie or two myself!

I have never seen pixel blocks before but I'm looking forward to seeing the finished top. You must have more patience than I because I hate rummaging through the tiny pieces in my box.
