Somewhere around the web a million years ago I saw a really pretty scrap star. As I have a million scraps and a million ideas on how to use them up, I thought I might have a go at making one.
Mine is different now. This is the centre. It’s 25 two inch squares stitched together for the centrepiece.
Then I used a plain white homespun (it’s all I had but I’m really quite enjoying the starkness of the white at the moment) and a larger remnant of pink to make the star points.
And I’m quite pleased with it. I’m planning on making on in each colour that I have – I’ve all my scraps put into boxes of the same colour, and it seems quite easy to pull one out, whip up a star and pop the box away. Of course, it didn’t even make the slightest dent in the fabric stash but I am trying.
If I have a good run I may have another go this afternoon at making another colour. We shall see.
Not too shabby points matching!
And that’s my Saturday update for you. It’s still freezing here but I think we might be having a very cold winter (which is totally fine with me!) this year. I don’t have a log fire in this house (husband didn’t want the hassle of wood in a new house) and sitting by the open oil heater doesn’t quite have the same ring to it but none the less – that is where you’ll find me this afternoon.
