Playing With Red

This morning I sat down at my sewing machine and sewed. This is the first time my sewing machine has been turned on in 2 weeks! I think maybe I might have sat there too long without moving because my sore knee is kind of cramped up right now and I probably should be sitting with it elevated and I will shortly.

I'm so behind on all my August goals so I decided today, even if it took me all day long, I was going to get my Row Quilt blocks done and my Dresden blocks cut and ready to sew for my Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects.  I now have 4 blocks complete, parts for 2 more ready to sew and this bag below to pull fabrics from.  Originally I said I was going to use a  chunk of cow print fabric but when I pulled it from the box, I see it's a pair of pj shorts. I think I'll see if they fit Elliot and finish them for him.  They will make him laugh.

My friends stopped at a yard sale a while back and bought this for me, along with a Singer 99K (for $10!!!) that needs some work. I have the best friends.  So I will empty this bag and see what I can with this fabric.

Now I'm going to see what everyone else is doing with their red scraps over at SoScrappy.

A bag of someone else's scraps! It is amazing how fun it is to sew with "different" fabrics.

Wohoo, she is on a roll! And you sure have nice friends - the bag looks like a great find; never mind including a sewing machine! Happy sewing!

Sounds like Christmas at your house with a new machine and a bag of scraps. Great blocks. Take it easy and rest that knee.
