Usually I don’t get time to spend Monday in my studio as there is always lots of other things which need my attention. However today was an exception. I got up early and was determined to complete the last Twisted Bear block for the group block swap. I had cut out the pieces last night and, as there are no elves in my neighbourhood, they were still waiting for me this morning. Needless to say, yesterday there was a lot of fabric auditioning going on, and because choosing the fabric can take me a long time getting it this was a good way to start the day.
I completed the block by lunch so had the afternoon to play around with more scraps. At the back of my cutting table is a rack for my patchwork rulers. I thought that making a basket for the rack would give the area a new look. I chose the same fabric to match the scissor caddy.
I am pleased at how it has turned out and has now made me look at the rest of the area. I have lots of scraps at the back of my cutting table in baskets according to their colour. I think I may replace these plastic baskets with new patchwork ones, so watch this space for more ideas.
Do you start a project and find that it leads on to more and more ideas?
