no wonder....

ok, so i made the "cabana daydreams" flimsy, then i made another small project (can't show now) and then i made these 2 potholders, the top one is done and has crazy patches on the back--same fabric scraps--and have i used up the entire 2 layer cakes yet?  no way!  so, no wonder i have a humongous amount of scraps left over from other projects.  once i piece another crazy back for the 2nd potholder, i am going to use the rest to cut inchies and make more of these little 9 patches....aren't they adorable?  this fabric line is sooo pretty, just right for spring and summer.  and the potholders will brighten up the kitchen come winter and much shorter days.  **** bonnie hunter is going to tuscany next spring.  i am toying with the idea of going on this tour.  i have always wanted to see italy.  true, i don't care much for flying long distances, would have to get in better shape for walking and sightseeing and would have to go into mega-scrimping mode, but still am thinking about it.  she flies all over all the time without any serious mishap, so chances are would make it to and from alive, but not sure can muster the courage.  it's a daydream all on its own!  ****  bit chilly in these parts this morning, 58 degrees, which is more like fall but won't last....summer is coming back soon with a vengeance, meaning beach and swim days galore!  now for more playtime with phoebe!

  1. They are such pretty scraps and you are making a valiant effort at using them up!
    Oh, go to Tuscany, Grace! I have planned on Ireland (my dream place to visit) several times and each time the trip has fallen through. What a chance to go on your dream vacation and enjoy good company, while not worrying about making all of the arrangements!

  3. Love the potholders. They are my go-to project for smaller scraps. They make wonderful gifts. Go to Tuscay!!! Wonderful incentive to get in better shape. (maybe I should plan to go and use the same incentive)

  4. I'm also voting that you take a deep breath then commit to the Tuscany trip. Go on - you'll have a ball and never regret it.
