scrappy sewing

one day while still mired in bronchitis, spied this pattern had saved to my desktop and remembered some little 9-patches that got sewn leader/ender and got stuffed away in a baggie....not really feeling like vegetating but no real mojo, so pulled them out and made them bigger and found this leftover yellow for a bright and colorful wallhanging....aka "sunshiny day." 


not quite finished and didn't use up all my mod charm squares (no surprise there), but did make a dent and, better still, emptied a UFO in a baggie.   my gloomy sick days made me think of the sunshine and how vivid colors are when the sun shines bright.  found the pattern on the internet, freebie, by kelly guy that she calls "between charming friends" as it calls for charm squares mostly.  my charms were sent to me my during my gap year between maine/maryland housing.  most of the charms were used in a quilt "cabana daydreams" that is waiting its turn in the quilting pile.  the piano key border needs finishing and there's enough yellow left to bind.  when completed, it'll go in the "hopefully sell" pile for a someday venue to generate funds and bring the sunshine inside for some lucky person.  ***  linking up with "oh scrap" today, so hop on over and see more scrappy goodies!
