What do we have here? (besides of course a desperate still pregnant woman).
My pile of scraps, unearth from the depths of my closet.
It faced me with such desperation.
"How could you have let me get so out of control?"
"I thought you saved me because you wanted to use me?"
"If you don't use me soon, your husband is going to want for you to leave us behind when you move"
Poor scraps of fabrics used, you were right, I have been neglecting you. But how do I tackle using scraps that don't match with one another; scraps that come in different sizes, weights, and hues.
The answer: Crumbs
One of the ladies at our Quilt 12 together quilting bee introduced the link to our group, and what a savior it is! Finally, almost an automatic method of putting together scraps. Quite perfect, actually, since I am in my own desperation to just pass the time.
As if there was such thing as "passing the time" for a mother of 3. Let's rephrase that to "keep me from going crazy because I am as big as a house and don't fit in to even the maternity clothes that I have."
But I digress...
In a span of a short hour I quickly created 12 6x6 blocks (to include the times it took me to use the bathroom, which was about 3). What a great accomplishment it was!
And these days, I'll take what I can get.
Desperate times call for desperate measures....
