I think handwork is in my future.....


as I cleaned I found
ah hem.......
TONS of embroidery floss
not sure where it all came from
I remember as a teen embroidering some
pillowcases for my Gram
but I dont remember having
this many

look at the regular size scissors to see
the size of the box



yeah
chock a block FULL

friendship bracelets anyone? LOL


remember this little clean up project?
I pulled pinks and purples and used the
5 inch charms in the center 
and 2 1/2 inch strips for the outside
and made little blocks for fun


well two became this many after I spent one day
just cutting out the parts and pinning them
the blocks will be about 8 inches so am 
thinking for my granddaughter I need
at least 5 across and 8 down
so that means 40 blocks and I have 17

but
I am out of any pink fabrics
anyone have any purple or pink pieces
they want to get rid of?
I will take them LOL
no seriously..........
I want to make this for my granddaughter 
as a lap quilt for Christmas

if I had a panel that would go
I would put that in the center

but I am liking the modern look of this one
that one lonely bright pink in the corner needs
some company dont you think???
