I Found Another Way to Use My Scraps!!

I saw a tutorial on Pinterest for some pretty fabric flowers
so I thought I'd give it a try.
The flowers are so easy and another great way to use up my scraps of fabric.
So here's what I have made so far.
I think I am going to make lots of them and use them as a
swag type thing for my window.
Maybe with some ribbon strips hanging down in between the flowers.
I think they are really fun to make, pretty, they make me smile
and another way to use up some of my scraps!

More on my Scrappy Selvage Quilt

I've been working on my scrappy selvage quilt all week
here are 6 squares of memories.

Earl couldn't see my vision when I first started
and thought something along the line of
"what the hell is she doing now?!?"
when I laid it out for him today
he actually liked it!
He'd say, "what's this piece from?"
and I'd tell him from Mallory's bag or Lexie's blanket
and he was pretty amazed that I could remember what I'd made
from all the different fabrics.
Now I have to finish up a few other projects
and then I'm going to sew this baby up.
I can't wait!!!

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
