Today was full of work, work, work......but this post came from a conversation with Cohen's Kindergarten teacher this morning. We were discussing the kids art work for Easter and she was telling me how difficult it was to find supplies on their budget. It lead to a conversation about my quilting and all those scrappy bits that end up in the rubbish...u know the ones that r just toooo small to do anything with or those selvages!!! Rubbing her hands with glee, she asked if id mind saving them for the kids to use.......of course not, great i love recycling!!! So i came home, raided the rubbish bin and started saving my scraps for the kids:
(ATT: Leigh, heres the wooden basketey thingy (lol) i got from my late FIL, which i use for my cottons). I know Cohen's teacher will appreciate when this bag is full.........so if u r looking for something to do with those bits u put in the rubbish, think of ur local kindergarten, they may be thrilled to recieve such treasures!!!!
On a totally different note, i was walking back inside tonite and there hiding in the standard rose bush was this unexpected (for this time of the year) gem:
Arent rosebuds perfect???
Happy quilting friends!!
