On the Road with Scraps

Wow, what a busy week we've had.  First of all Veronica and I drove back to Louisiana to babysit for the week.  Then we starting cutting fabric scraps in an attempt to tame Veronica's scraps.  They were getting a little out of hand. 

She has boxes and bags of them taking over the house.  She's been cutting 1 1/2", 2" and 2 1/2" strips.  She has lots off leftovers for her mini string star too.  She has decided to challenge herself to "use the rotary cutter" everyday in October.  She's hoping to get quite a bit done.  She told her friend Tina and Tina thought that was a great idea.  Now Tina has joined in on the fun.  We'll see what they get done. 

Then we took another trip to Mama's Quilt Shop.  It's so friendly and inviting.  If you're ever near Independence Louisiana, you should stop in.  Brenda is a wonderful shop owner and very knowledgeable.  They've got lots of fabric, notions and patterns. 

Veronica  got her yellow challenge that Carol had them working on done, aka, "the sweatshop" challenge.  She ended up with 2 tops for 2 granddaughters. 

Well, we're off to "work" some more on those scraps.
