If those of you who commented on the blog post about scraps could send me your address, I will mail you squishies. (Lean, Nadine, Sue, Gloria and Nova) Send to Things are moving right along. I posted yesterday on the Great Hexagon Quilt-Along site about a Grandmother's Flower Garden top that I wanted to give away and am mailing it to SummerSadie. I have it boxed and ready to go but will not get to the post office before Tuesday as it is a holiday weekend and I am working tomorrow. Plus, I need to get the squishies of scraps together!

We had the carpets cleaned today, so I didn't get much cleaning/organizing done as they are too damp for much foot traffic - so I took a nap. Likely excuse!

I have two quilts to bind and I'll take a picture of them when I'm done. For now I'll post a picture of the hex quilt top I'm giving to SummerSadie. I bought it last year at a tag sale at a church and I have left it rolled up in a bag so I'm sure she'll be a better owner for it than me!

Moving & A Scrap Give-Away

Ok, I have tried to "bloom where I am planted" and it's not working. See the picture at the top of my blog? That's where I want to be - in Florida, not Colorado. Now, mind you, the present circumstances are self-induced. I insisted I wanted to be here and drug the whole family out to live in the foothills. It's beatiful here, really beautiful. But my extended family is not here and I miss them terribly. So, I am preparing to sell the house (we just purchased last year) and move back to Fl. I know, I nedd a shrink in this economy, but, it will be worth it in the end.

So, in getting the house ready, I have discovered I have a serious problem. I am a hoarder. I mean I hoard every little fabric scrap because I love scrap quilts. The problem with that is that I haven't made any (well, one, but that was years ago). So, does anyone want my scraps? There are bags of them. Some small, some bigger. A huge mix of fabric types from traditional to kidstuff to Civil War. Quilt shop quality and not (Joann's). I'll mail them free of charge. Just leave a comment here by Friday at 3 pm EST. If by chance there is more than one taker then I'll do a random drawing. I just can't bring myself to throw them away. It's part of the hoarding disease.
