Moving it Forward

It's no secret I love scrap quilts or that playing in my scraps makes me very happy. This weekend I was planning a little snow play with my daughter but with the thermometer reading 1* we made other plans. We bit the bullet and finally got Christmas taken down. I was tempted to honor Debbie Reynolds and her daughter, Carrie Fisher and just keep it up year round. Apparently they both did this, they loved Christmas so much. But the fact that I hate to dust and all those decorations tend to collect dust so down it all came. Then off my daughter went to make cookies with a friend and I jumped into my bits bin and made a bunch more of these little scrappy stars. 
Also this week thanks to everyone's input I settled on a sashing idea for my yarn bomb trees. I know a lot of you liked the red. Sorry I don't know if it's because I just used red as a sashing and didn't want to repeat myself so soon or what but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. Instead I went with two different blues. Instead of true sashing I framed the blocks in a wonky improvisational style. I really like the design it creates where the blocks come together. I didn't quite get them all framed. But that will give me something to do this week.
Now it's your turn. Time to share your progress. How did you move things forward this last week. I'm looking forward to seeing what you've done. It truly is inspiring.

  2. The two blues look great on the trees - much more subtle than the red. LOVE the stars.
