Scrap Happy Play

Sometimes after completing a project I need a little play.  Not that every project I finish has an element of play, but I like to let go a structure and be spontaneous.  Pull out my scrap been and just let things happen.  Take for instance these little 1 1/2" squares I found in the bin from a recent project.  I mindlessly put them together to create this 'make me smile' nine patches.
 When the little squares were gone I started sewing bits together to create a little fabric.
 Finally I cut up some bigger pieces from the scrap bins into strips.
What will become of all this play only time will tell, but ideas are forming.
