Scrappy-Happy-List-Takers


 
It started with a pile of tiny  fabric scraps -
and suddenly it was a fabric patchwork puzzle.





I'm unable to throw away fabric scraps -
I love scrappy-happy projects.



 
 
I want to go through my fabric stash and do a spring clean,
but I'm not sure, that it will be an easy project....
I started my fabric collection, when I started to work back in 78.
I often wish, that I wasn't a person,
 who get too attached to things like fabric and yarn.
Many of my fabrics are held onto for sentimal reasons.

I have already given yarn to a local second hand shop
- it was great!

I want to know, that my treasured fabrics go to good new homes.
Maybe I should make some fabric bundles for sale

  2. Som altid meget fine ting du får lavet Mette.
    Jeg har også syet lidt idag. Overvejer også at få solgt lidt ud af stof og bøger. Har brug for at få mere plads.

  3. Your patchwork projects are always so lovely and original! Oh and I totally understand how difficult to say "good bye" to our fabric collection...

  5. Oh hvor jeg godt kender det der, jeg har dog brugt mit lager gennem de sidste 8 år.
    Jeg har endnu et lille lager af små fine stof stykker, som når tiden kommer skal bruges til lidt mine patchwork (gæt hvem der har givet mig den ide;))
    Igen fine fine ting du har syet.

  7. I too keep way too many fabric scraps and yarn - it's so hard to throw away/give away scraps sometimes. I love your patchwork projects though - very creative! :)

  11. These are so beautiful - love everything about them! And I know *exactly* how you feel about your fabric etc! ;-) I am such a 'fabric hoarder' myself!...but have, in the past, also donated bits of fabric to the local charity shop! It felt good...and I kept wondering where the pieces would end up and what they would be transformed into by someone else...
