Pieces, pieces are dominating every available (and unavailable) creative space at chez clutterpunk.
Pincushion pieces (about to be packed up to take to the Northern Craft Bonanza tonight):
Kaleidoscope pieces (slowly sashiko-ing my way around the circles):
Rectangular scrap pieces sitting in my newly pieced scrap-gatherer, which are being cut into varying widths and sorted into paper bags:
(They are being amassed for what I am calling my 'scrap management quilt', which will hopefully look something like the quilt below, found in THIS book):
Let's not forget the yo-yos:
And these pieces, lying around waiting to become something pretty to be given away in a few weeks... maybe to you.
Really, don't you think it's high time I started putting the pieces together?
Please drop into Kirsty's place if you'd like to play along with My Creative Space this week.
The scrap management quilt will be stunning!ReplyDelete
Your sashiko is coming along beautifully too.
I'm glad I'm not the only one with so many things on the go!ReplyDelete
Love the look of your pincushion pieces.
Oh & that echino fabric!
The quilt looks like a great idea. and Woohoo for Yoyo's. I did some scrap management today when I finished the belt for my Ben 10 dress... it's an Oobie Belt? hmm. I used all the green scraps left over from the buntings and it looks pretty freaking awesome. It reminds me of your green quilting you were doing before!!ReplyDelete
Now get those crafts started woman!!
OMG!!! Having a mild panic over that scrap quilt!!! WILL BE AMAZING!ReplyDelete
The pincushion pieces are so lovely, hooray red!ReplyDelete
you are certainly busy Gina and so many gorgeous looking projects thereReplyDelete
Scrap management quilt ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS. Stop scrapping about and get moving on that one - an urgent order. Now I'll stop being quite so bossy - but you're freakin' me out on the gorgeous pincushion pieces. Haven't started mine. As yet, entirely bereft of a single pinny notion...ReplyDelete
You have some pretty funky things going on there gina!!! I CANT WAIT to see the results!!ReplyDelete
Oh no! not your gorgeous new bag! Not for scraps!! LOL. But really, that bag is too pretty to be using for your scraps. Hope everything comes together soon. xo m.ReplyDelete
The scrap quilt is quite lovely. I seriously need some scrap management around these parts too. But don't rush... it's all about the journey :)ReplyDelete
Nah. I like all the pieces ;)ReplyDelete
Having said that the scrap quilt is making my heart beat a little faster ... You go girl!
My life is always a bit piecey and it works for me. It is all looking amazingReplyDelete
Nah... if you start putting them together you might realise that you're missing one ;)ReplyDelete
As usual your creative space is looking delicious. You have such fine taste in fabrics - love your style.
Love all your pieces...beautiful things in progress!ReplyDelete
I'm all "ahhhhhhh"s and "ooooooohhhh"s... everything is looking luffly.ReplyDelete
Is the pincushion for Kate's swap thingy? I am absoloutely devoed that I was offline & missed signing up for that *sobs*.... will just have to make myself one... although that's not nearly as much fun.
Ooh, I adore that book, I bought my own copy not too long ago and have spent many happy stolen moments ooohing and aaahhhing over it. Look forward to seeing your pieces making friends with one another. : )ReplyDelete
So many beautiful pieces... do you not end up procrastinating about which one to give your time to..??!! Looking forward to seeing some pieces all together.ReplyDelete
Giggled but love your scrap management quilt... great idea for lots of reasons, like using up scraps and minimal stress about colour matching.
Time to make peace with your pieces!ReplyDelete
You have some fantastic projects on the go there. I do love your sashiko stitching - its really beautiful.
Hexagons, squares, circles, rectangles ... it is all about shapes for you this week.ReplyDelete
Love the sashiko .. I have been thinking about doing one of the workshops at Kimono House.
