March's Scrap Attack

Hello! It's me. Remember me?

I know I haven't been very present in Blogland this month and I haven't answered every comment on my last post but life around here got very serious all of a sudden. I have a funeral tomorrow and then, it shall be sunnier. (Hopefully). One of hubby's old aunt passed away after a very brave battle. May she rest in peace.

I did managed to make all the Churn Dash blocks for Barb's swap project. Yay!

22 reds and 44 oranges sent to Barb's place
I also managed to de-bone a few shirts. I do not de-bone à la Bonnie. It takes me a whole lot more than just 7 minutes, lol.  I un-stitch some seams like the yokes and the "X" on the back of some men's shirts.

I remove breast pockets very carefully in order to keep the shirt free of holes. And I didn't have a lot of "stitching" or "ripping" time but 8 shirts came undone.
It is a good beginning ... but not a big one as it barely shows in the drawer.

Oh well, I'll try to keep at it for the month of March, (which should be calmer) and I also want to finish the January's Challenge but ... let's get on with March's own Challenge. I stirred the jar of papers and out popped ... 

a string project has to be finished. Ouch!

This is where my strings multiply are stored.
I don't expect to make a dent in any of these drawers but I do have a little plan germinating in my head. Oh! oh! I can feel a sprout of creativity coming up. (Gosh! It must be Spring. Why else would I talk like this?!!!)


Thank you, Sarah, for hosting Scrap Attack.
