FNSI and RSC October

 First of all many thanks to  Wendy for organising our Friday evening again - do pop over to Wendy's blog to see who else joined in and what they were working on.

After an excellent Fish and Chip lunch in a local restaurant I sat down to complete my RSC crumb blocks for the month. Actually, I was working on crumbs from September as well as we were away all last month and my orange blocks did not get made. I made the little Dresden flowers earlier in the week. So here we are - Septembers orange Dresdens and crumb blocks.


The colour for October is light and bright greens. Well, I used all my green scraps earlier in the year so instead I pulled out all my black and grey scraps. Here you can see my Dresdens, seven crumb blocks and a few little squares for the Scraptherapy box. I have also cut enough petals for two more Dresdens as looking at my quilt I can see that I will need four altogether.


This year I have been trying to clear out my crumb box - at the beginning of the year I had to put another box on top of it to keep it closed - now it is just half full.


There are still plenty of cream and brown scraps in there which I know I will use next year. Otherwise I am very happy with how this year has gone.

Linking up with Angela at Soscrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday. Thank you Angela.

  15. No matter how much I sew, I never get the scraps to diminish. How did you managed that? Love your Dresden flowers and I can't wait to seeing them all together. Fish and Chips? I hadn't had that in such a long time. Let's do that for diner tonight. Thanks for the inspiration. ;^)

  20. Beautiful Dresden flowers :-)) and great when the supply melts.
    Many greetings from the city of Dresden.
    Yesterday we had a big fabric market on the Altmarkt ... it was just wonderful. Today I start with a small quilt for a bag :-)
    Good Sunday for you and greetings from me.

  24. You have done so well to reduce your crumb box. I’m looking forward to seeing what you create with all you blocks and dresdens. My crumb box is getting to overflowing too, so I may have to do something similar next year.

    RépondreSupprimer
  25. Well done! It's always an alarming moment when the box needs a weight on it to stay closed!
