Hmm.. lots of random sewing it seems. I've been keeping busy with these "Taking Names" blocks for our group quilt/pattern test project.. been making a few more of my own while I wait for my package to arrive with all of my partners' background fabrics in them. When that comes, I will be making 12 blocks for each person (eight people) so it will be crazy for a few days. I don't want to be the one who misses the deadline. However, I think I'm the only one from the west coast, and my package hasn't arrived yet from the Boston area. :/ So when I wasn't working on my own blocks.. (I have 18 now)
..I started cutting out some strips in preparation, as I've heard some of the other participants have chosen black and white to go with their chosen background color.
Can you believe this was my scrap basket when I started..
And this is my scrap basket 18 blocks later?
Is it just me, or does it almost seem that they've multiplied? You can't even tell I've touched it, much less made 18 blocks. So crazy.
No progress has been made on the Impromptu quilt, but I did sew up a quick valance for our upstairs bathroom..
..that is primarily used by my son. This is some home dec weight fabric I've had for years and years.
Slice, dice and hem. For this window..
I think will warm it up in there a little and go with his jungle-y things.
$4 pics from Target:
And last but not least, the tissue-puking Tiger. :) Gotta love little boys!
One of these days, I will take care of the mirror situation, and repaint the vanity. For now, I'm just glad I finally got out that piece of fabric and made something with it!
So far so good in keeping with my "Drop and Give Me Twenty" (minutes of sewing a day in February) pledge.
Gonna link up with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday. Hope everyone's having a great week so far!
p.s. In other good news, my finger hasn't fallen off, and I've graduated from a pressure bandage to a regular bandaid and it's not bleeding or throbbing anymore. :)

at first I thought you were making a joke with your scraps pictures but then I remembered I made a queen quilt top with mostly scraps and had the same problem -- it looked like I had more scraps when I finished. But hey there are worse problems to have. great progress this week.
Your blocks look fabulous! My scrap basket does the same thing - it just keeps multiplying on its own! And no, you're not the only one to try to cut off your finger with a rotary cutter - I cut mine so bad once it bled for three days even though I had a pressure bandage on it! But it finally healed, and now I use it as an object lesson for new quilters.... ;-)
