Indigo Scraps Find a New Use

If you know me at all, you know that I can not throw out my scraps that are generated from making a larger piece. They usually have Mistyfuse on the back and are very  handy for creating little treasures. So, last night it occurred to me that my indigo scraps would look cool on the old denim. I added some red linen for a punch. This time, I did not completely cover the denim. I also did not do the free motion quilting under the tulle. I just topped the piece with tulle and did grid stitching.

I think I might fuse these to a base of red felt.

Yesterday, Mr C and I went to the nursery and bought a wreath for the front door. We had a bit of a disagreement on style, but settled on this one.

I had good news from my ENT this morning, he says my sinuses are quite clear and the saline rinses and steroid nasal spray will prevent a need for sinus surgery.

Are you a knitter, a friend of mine, Lori Beitler, just launched a beautiful and comprehensive online yarn shop, Stitchuary. Check it out. Lori is from New Jersey. I met her and some of her friends at the SDA conference last year. They kept me in stitches. (Pun intended!)
