Scraps, doggie quilts, knitting - Oh my!

The other day I received a package of scraps from my blogging quilt buddy Wanda from Exuberant Color. The were flannel scraps that I will use to mix in with the other flannel scraps I have. There were some lighter colors which I needed.

Wanda and I share of love of African Dutch Wax fabric and she threw in some scraps she had been saving for me. They are fabulous and some pieces a bit bigger than what I would call a scrap! So generous!

Wanda had sent me this piece of African fabric with these cute fish several years ago. I have been holding on to it for the right project.

I have this WIP that I will be using the scraps and the fish fabric. I have a box of my own scraps somewhere in the fabric storage room that will be added to this improv piece.
This piece is not on my UFO list. See Glen, I have a few projects buried in corners too!

Wanda, let me know when you get the postage check so I know you received it. Thanks so much!

I felt like knitting yesterday so at lunch and after work I got 5 1/4" knitted on the scarf that will be for my beautician. It is now 42" long so only 30" left to knit.

I got another doggie quilt top done too! Four done; four to go!

So this weekend will be all about working on the doggie quilts,

hand stitching the end of the zippers in the three drum cases

maybe a bit of knitting, and making Valentine cookies for the guys at work. I didn't make them for today since so many people are off site for training today.

Have a great weekend!

Got your check for the postage yesterday! Thanks!

I love your improv piece. I think I need to just start one with no deadline in mind just to keep playing with the scraps.

Doggie Quilts ? are they quilts for dogs to lie on or for humans to remember their dogs? Love the scrappiness! Thanks for linking up to #scraptastictuesday!
