Thank you for the Scraps/Energy for January

I have to give a big thank you for the person who sent me the scraps.  I can't find her email address to thank her again.  It has been such a joy to cut up her scraps, in fact there were 2 fabrics that I have had (we have great taste).  My husband took the box the scrap came in and throw it out right away since the garbage men were coming.  I don't have her address.

I loved the bright fabric and adding a black sash to some of the light fabric changed the whole quilt.
Picture doesn't due it justice.

January can be a tough month for me but I have been having lots of energy.  I have lots to do this year.  I have been busy with knitting prayer shawls, cross stitching valentine cards, making a granny quilt, reading  and sewing quilts with scraps.  The quilts are not fancy but I am enjoying with what I come up with.

I am organizing my scraps - in December it took about 2 weeks to cut up.  How do you organize your scraps, by size, color or as blogger from "Confessions of a Fabric Addict" (amazing person Sarah is): she sorts fabric by floral, stripes, batik, children fabric this time and she could change.

Enjoy this week, time is going fast already.

Library Quilt

Went to Grapevine Library in TX.  Saw a lovely quilt, sewing machine block is beautiful.
