A New Year...

... And I still have scraps!

Here it is, already the 3rd day of 2012!  I thought I would make a resolution to be more organized this year.  But I have already broken it.  Look at the state of my sewing table!  Lots of scraps and strips. 



So I decided to make a resolution I can stick with and that is... play with my scraps.  That's my goal for 2012, to play with my scraps.  I know it's kind of hokey, but I won't be able to keep any other resolution, so rather than feel like a failure, I will look at my scrappy blocks and smile.  After all, isn't that what life is all about?

I saw a 'Lego Block' quilt on somebody's blog.  I used to love Lego.  My kids loved it too!  We had lots of it.  So this project solves two things - playing with Lego and building a quilt with fabric blocks.


I want to wish everyone a belated Happy New Year.  Hope 2012 is good to you.  I have been too busy to read blogs or answer my mail.  But I'll be back soon.  I have a bit of a sore throat at the moment.  I hope it doesn't develop into something more serious.  I just want to nap with my kitties!  That could be my resolution too - taking lots of naps with my kitties.  I know I won't break that one!

I love it when I see people making good use of scraps (and when I do that myself, too). It's fun AND it's good not to waste all that fun fabric!!! GOOD JOB, Hetty!!! Keep up the good work!!! Hope you feel better soon, too.

Dear Hetty,

About scraps.
From the great philosofer Nietzsche are thousands short notices of thoughts he still wanted to work out. After his death they are published in seven books.

With love, Henk
