Scrap Saturday

I couldn't wait to get into my scrap stash last night to pull out some blue fabrics for this month's Scrap Challenge! I found some nice blues at the bottom of this container and got to work making a bunch of 2 1/2 inch squares.





I also found a nice white fabric and got to work making some snowflakes on my embroidery machine.



I have decided to make a nice winter theme shopping bag for this month. I managed to get all the blocks made and put together, as well as cut the lining and batting. I now have all the pieces ready to sew the tote bag together!



If time permits tomorrow evening I think I only need another hour and I should have the bag complete!!! woo hooo!!! I'm stoked!!! I am already thinking of what I will make for next Saturday's "Scrap Saturday"!!!

Oh, btw, I still have two more spaces available if anyone is interested in the "Pay It Forward" I am doing this year! I have been putting on my thinking cap the last few days and I have some ideas in mind for some pressies to make and giveaway to some special quilting bloggers out there!

Well its off to bed I go. It's already 11pm and I am starting to fall asleep. I got into bed last night at a good hour and figured I would get in a nice sleep. Unfortunately I spent the night staring at the ceiling! I might have got an hour of sleep in altogether. And William actually slept through the night. What a good sleep I could have had... sigh.... ahhh well Trevor is on monitor duty the next two nights. We take turns with the night watch.



I'm crossing my fingers I get a better sleep tonight!

Great scrap project!

Thanks for visiting my blog. You asked where you could get the "Berry Picking Party" pattern but you are set to no emails so I couldn't answer you directly. I got it from here.....

Love the bag idea with the embroidered snowflakes. Perfect for this time of year.

That is going to be a great tote bag! I love what you did and how that looks with the embroidered part added to the 9 patch. Provides a whole new dimension with texture.

Oh boy! Am I glad you stopped by my blog so that I can now return the favor. It's ALWAYS fun and exciting meeting someone new and I can't wait to actually find some time to really dive into your blog (but it's getting late right now).

Those snowflakes are AMAZING and your project will also be amazing!

I tried to skim back (obviously too quickly) to learn what the monitor is for...baby? And I'm SO sorry for your lack of sleep. Sadly, I know that feeling all too well :0( I hope you find sleep too!!!!!
