Waste not.....

I have been keeping flannelette scraps for a long time. I'm not sure what I planned to do with them, but I decided to make a quilt-as-you-go quilt yesterday. I figured that I could make a scrap quilt for my grandson. (Afterall, you can never have too many rugs when you have a baby.)


I started to cut squares without any real plan and ended up with enough squares to make two quilts. The second quilt is almost finished. So far this week has been a sew, sew, sew week and I plan to keep sewing for the rest of the week too. It's still cold and rainy here and my sewing room seems to be the most comfortable room at the moment. Mrs 24 and I had another sewing day today to finish off her fitted nappies. We almost did it too. We just have 3 nappies left to make. We have made all the liners and we want to make some more nappy covers. So, one more sewing day is in order next week.

great to hear your'e keeping cosy and happy by sewing! My sewing corner is the coldest spot around here so I just dash in to grab supplies and keep knitting by the heater :)
The baby blankies are very cute and snuggly.
