If Life Gives You Flannel Scraps..........

.. make a flannel quilt.  I have come to be known as the 'Scrap Lady'.  Not that I mind!  I keep getting those great scraps given to me.  And I've never met a scrap I didn't like!  There were a lot of flannel pieces already cut into squares in the last batch of scraps.  I added a few of my own and came up with this. 
It's lovely and warm.  My husband was eyeing it last night.  So I decided to make him one for his very own.  There were some wild, outdoorsy flannel scraps in that batch.  I had to change the pattern because there just weren't enough of the 4.5inch pieces.  This will take me awhile because I still have a lot of Christmas stuff to get finished.  And it's already December 1st!  How did that happen?
And lastly, a shot of one of my Christmas Cactus plants, blooming in a gorgeous creamy/peach colour.  My red one has already been in bloom for a couple of weeks and the pink ones are starting to bloom too.  There are still lots of buds, so I hope to have lots of colour for Christmas this year.

I can send you lots of scraps. I'm not good about using them. I like seeing them in quilts like yours.

Great use of flannel scraps. I love scrappy quilts and like you have yet to meet a scrap I didn't like.
