Very Late Scatterdays..

OK, its late I know I know... but hey, at least its done!

This weeks Scatterdays was : VVVVVVVVVV (bloody hell I thought)... subject was, in the kitchen, car part and the office.. argh!! One day I will work out the mosaic flicker thing, but its too much for my brain to work out.. so bear with me possums!











OK, car part = visor... In the Office = visitab files AND the rentonkil VERMIN killer...
Kitchen thing = well I couldn't let a week go by without a pet pic.. so here I have the 'VARMIT eating his VIDDLES'...


I have also included pics of the Quilt a long, block of the week I have been working on.. I am doing two at once, so this week I chose a blue and a lovely green.. I found these FQ's I didn't even know I owned them, they were 'hidden with some other fabric'..



I have also been cutting up scraps into 2.5" squares for a mindless leader/ender project. Is it just me, or a quilters odd? I mean, we make leader/ender blocks to save on thread..hmmmmm when I think of how much fabric I haven't used and probably will never use, I am sure glad I have saved on thread! LOL Actually, it is amazing, as I have made all these blocks from enders in the past week, 18 blocks in a week.. not too shabby.. I'll put them with the hearts I have been receiving..



I also made a pencil roll for a party that Missymoo is off to tomorrow (I thought it was today).. *sigh* kids parties? I am always struggling to find something to find something for the kid for a pressie.. The girl who is receiving this LOVES blue, green and pink (outside is pink) and she does art classes, so I grabbed a sketch book to go with it.. I had seen a few tutorials on the web, but in true Lissa style, I changed it a little!

Well I think thats enough from me!

'til next time..

You'll have a whole quilt just of leaders and enders in no time. Thanks for the disappearing 9 patch advice - I am on it - truly!!!

Your pussy cat looks thoroughly gorgeous, not a varmint at all :-) Those 9 patch blocks would look lovely interspersed with heart blocks I should think

Oh what a nice Pet! I'll bet I've got more Babushkas than you do pets LOL But I guess the Babushkas don't keep my feet warm at night eh!

I love your little 9 patches. they look so cute all lined up like that. I like how the white blocks make up little crosses. I think I am getting an idea in my head now for a new quilt... :)
