Look What I Found!

A box of goodies stuff!

I found this bin on a shelf and opened it and look at all the stuff that was inside!


A rug hooking canvas, a whole bunch of various scraps, some small rag quilt blocks and an applique project - WOW!

That was just the top.  Then I uncovered some half poinsettia blocks with lots of red half square triangle (HST).

Here is a partially pieced and traced Pineneedles Designs project.


And, a Zip-Lock bag full of Oriental 2" squares and 4" squares!  Wowzers! I'm not really sure what I had planned for these.  I was thinking of making another scrappy spool illusions quilt with them but the 4" squares don't quite fit on my 3" finished HST die :-(  If I do that I'll have to do my HST the traditional way :-(  Or - brain-wave - I could cut them all into 3.5" squares!  I have the die for that!  Hmm, I don't know - any ideas?

I remember doing all of these things but I forgot where I put them!  Guess I found out!  See, this is why I don't like to put things away.  I lose them when I put them away because I forget where I put them.

I cut all the scraps into 2" squares for leaders and enders - so that's done.  I'm not sure what to do with the rest of it though.  The orientals look really nice together - hmmm.  The applique project I might comeback to in the summer when I can sit outside and hand-cut.  I have no idea what to do with all the Christmas HSTs though.

Some-days maybe it is better to leave the box closed LOL!
