New week, busy week

This is how the week began !! We were in an arctic freeze last Wednesday and Thursday. Monday we were in the 60s !!! It has been a very interesting winter.

And the busy-ness began on Monday. I spent the morning with seven pre-schoolers. We had a great morning of playing and crafting.
I didn't get pictures, but they made 4 or 5 inch hearts decorated with ribbon and scraps of fabric. I don't know who was more excited, the kids or the moms :)

Tuesday morning I spent at Bible Study. We are studying David at the moment as part of our study on the People of the Old Testament.
When I got home there was a box :)

One of my favorite on-line vendors is Missouri Star Quilt Company. I love their daily deals. I ordered something the other day and found a scrap bag. So I ordered it. This is what I got:


These are a fairly decent size :)

A good variety :)


Not sure what I'm going to do with this, but I'll figure something out :)

I'm pretty pleased with all of it and felt like I got a pretty good deal.

I love squishy mail :)

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a day filled with things that make and keep you happy.

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

Isaiah 43:19 NIVUK

Nice scraps! It looks like a pleasing assortment that goes together nicely. Have fun with those. I notice that you didn't show what you went there to order. =)

I don't know where you live, but our weather is capable of such changes as well.

When I was reading about your scrap bag it reminded me that I bought one once. As a quilter I figured we could use up scraps of anything. Well, I wasn't so happy with my scrap box at first. It had more novelty fabric which I don't use much in quilting. Since then I have used that novelty fabric for some baby blankets.

I was thinking it might be fun to have a couple of quilters buy a scrap box and be required to make a scrap quilt out of it. It would be fun, but I am not proposing to participate in it.

I love the alphabet letters.
