Ever since I started patchwork, I've been pretty good at keeping hold of scraps, piling them into a shoebox. Recently I took them all out, ironed each one, and had them ready for a project idea. With Miss PatchyRose's enthusiasm to start sewing, I could see them disappearing fast, but fortunately still got quite a few to play with ;-) I've been making these scrappy log cabins, each in the same overall colour scheme, to look like pots of paint.
It may take some time before I can make a quilt with them, but I'm happy for this to be a longer term project.
In the meantime, I whipped up another drawstring bag, this time for an adult friend who has a birthday coming up.
