Pretty snowflakes

 
NO NOT THAT KIND!!!!!  at least not YET!!!!
 
I puttered and crocheted a few little snowflake kind of patterns........

 
I will dip them in white glue and put them on waxed paper and pin the star points until they stiffen and dry. then they will be ready for my tree..........well maybe after a little glitter........

 
do you like them?



 
here is another "quilt as you go" ongoing project that is on my sewing table. I throw selvedges into a container and when I get a few I stitch them together. we will see what this will become. I don't have long ones the length of fabric so I am thinking a design like a coin type quilt may be the ticket. as you can see this is not very big yet so there is lots of time to think about it. for now I will be happy just to use them up into a project........
last year made some into a trivet that I use on the counter for hot pans. I love it. It is extra thick and sturdy and does the job quite nicely.......
 
what are you doing with your scraps of strings and fabric?
