The bags, the boxes, the bins of strings just kept over flowing --- strips were flying, what a good good time!
This poor paper box….it was never going to be the same after this!
I must say when it was brought into the room, that the lid fit snuggly, nothing was escaping, those scraps were very well behaved!
But you know what happens with a bit of shuffling and digging?
The contents of that humble copy paper box started to get a little more sure of themslves ---“Oh! Look! We are going to be a QUILT!!”
“Let’s puff ourselves up to the proudest we can be – come on you guys, we are not just lowly scraps anymore –we are about to be BEEE-UUU-TII_FUL!!”
And pretty soon the scraps went from simply occupying the space within the box to this:
Oh no! They are escaping!!
It’s a full on ESCAPE!! LOL!
And the funniest part? What fit in the box…..with the lid on….before class, would NOT fit back in to the box. It was more than just FLUFFED, it seemed there were more scraps after we sewed all day, than before we started! I call these scraps with ATTITUDE! :cD
I hope you enjoy viewing the photos below!

Today is my long day. This morning I have “off” so I am headed to get a massage…..my right hamstring is all locked up again and all the standing and then all the driving is a bit painful ---mostly it hurts at night at the end of the day, and when I’m trying to get to sleep, so going to have that worked on today.
This afternoon I’m doing a book signing at Tiny Stitches in Marietta, GA from 2pm to 3pm! And then I’ll hightail it back over to Alpharetta for tonight’s guild meeting ----
After the meeting is over tonight, I’m driving over 100 miles to Lake Oconee GA – tomorrow morning starts my fun with the Lake Oconee quilt guild, and there is no way I want to battle Atlanta traffic on a Tuesday morning to get to Greensboro, GA in time for their morning meeting. So tonight it is. I’ll be a zombie ----but Quilt Zombies do have a lot of fun!
Have a great Monday, everyone!
