FNSI – One quilter’s trash is another quilter’s treasure. I have decided to make a few doll quilts for the Get your Mrs. Claus on Project. As I was digging through the leaning tower of scraps Friday evening, I found some pretty pieces that were headed for the trash can at a retreat I attended. So from trash, I was able to make a doll quilt and 6 mug rugs for my Hospice project.
I cut out another quilt from scraps leftover from a baby quilt last month. I really am trying very hard to use up some scraps.
Today’s adventure involved fields of blooming sunflowers. On the way, I had to stop and get a picture of this sign.
“Adopt a Highway” signs are very common around here, but I’ve never seen a “rustic road”.
The road to get to the sunflowers probably wouldn’t even be considered a road. I had to get out of the car a couple of times to guide dh over the ruts and try to limit any damage to the car. Needless to say, we took a different road home. Our destination was McKee-Besher WMA. they have 5 fields that are planted in sunflowers, and two of them are currently in bloom.
After photographing the lovely sunflowers, there was time to visit a nearby quilt shop to pick up another Row by Row pattern. And maybe some fabric for a Christmas gift. Christmas will be here sooner than you think!
And now I must get back to work on those doll quilts! Hope you’re all having a nice weekend.
