sew stitch snap SHARE #5

Welcome to 'Sew, Stitch, Snap, SHARE'

- trial block

First up, what's happening in my sewing room this week?
Well, I do so want to start something new
but {sigh} I'm madly trying to work on my present WiP.
I did console myself one evening by faffing around with these lovely scraps though . . .

. . . imagine the possibilites !

There were lots of inspiring projects from our last link up
My pick was Maryse's 'courthouse steps' quilt, did you see it too?
It's all paper pieced with heaps of matchstick quilting.
A truely wonderful quilt,
pop over here to read more about it and see lots more of Maryse's creations.

And what are you working on right now?
Whatever you're sewing or stitching, you can link it up here.
Just follow these simple guidelines:

1. Link up from any post from the past week that features something you have been sewing or stitching. You can write as much or as little about your project as you like, or simply let your photos do the talking.
2. Somewhere in your post, please link back to this post.
3. Please comment on a couple of the other Sew, Stitch, Snap, SHARE links - its fun to receive comments from new people, and we are trying to encourage people to read blogs and keep blogging alive too.

    Thanks for joining us again, we can't wait to see what you have all been creating,
    Julie & Linda


    1. I made a similar comment on my post about wanting to start new things. Some lovely fabircs in that scrap pile.

    2. What a wonderful scrappy courthouse steps quilt.

    3. Lovely scrap busting........consoling yourself among them is great therapy! No scrap busting for me, quilting and I did link up to share something new I am making for myself. Happy day to you!

    4. That's what always gets us into trouble, considering those possibilities!

    5. I love that block, what is it?
      I don't want to start anything new either; I just want to finish what I started (ahh, easier said than done) ... Always something to tempt us!!
      Thanks for featuring my Courthouse Steps, that's very kind of you!!

    6. I think I have a couple of fabrics like what's in your pile!

      I have started a couple of new somethings BUT I've also been finishing up old stuff. New starts was my reward!

    7. I just love the fun fabrics. So light and airy.

    8. I'm a bit late to the party but will link up anyway :-) I'll be interested to see what you do with those scraps.

    9. That trial block is gorgeous! Looking forward to seeing a few more of those.


    Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. I love to hear your thoughts.
