but not really; a new exciting life awaits these scraps from the christmas wallhanging. i realized after looking at it for some time that the pieces were too large to be a successful scrappy. no matter, these pretty scraps will morph into other projects. **** and just underneath the scraps are foundations for "just takes 2" which is coming along, now starting on the 3rd section. this project plus a few more little houses are on the sewing table today. for hand quilting, the autumn change is in the hoop. it is a gift for someone special, so the sooner it's done, the sooner it's out of here and on to its new home. **** woke up to snow again today; not much, but any that makes the roads messy is too much in my opinion. good thing the days are slowly lengthening!
