You are too funny.  I packed, and moved, 3 boxes of scraps.  Don’t tell hubby.  Some of them were good sized.  My intent is to make squares of all sizes and then put them into a scrap quilt.  I tried doing crumbs but didn’t like outcome.  LOL

Or old patterns and magazines! LOL

It will be a challenge for sure.  We do not count scraps as garbage you know.

Thank you Trudyann for the beautiful block!!!!  It is going to become a beautiful quilt. 

Home renovation half done.  Husband cleaned up the office.  He took out five, and I do mean five, bags of papers that were from his managerial position with his company.  He had stuff from 2012 still.  Wow, and he said it was all me. LOL  The sad part is, just wait till I have to clean up and go thru my sewing stuff.  Now there will be only one bag I think.

Wilma, sorry, yes the snail block probably was suppose to go to Ginny. Some of my sewing projects got mixed up. Thank you if you can forward.

Trudyann I received your beautiful block yesterday. Thank you.

If I forgot anyone, please let me know.

Trudyann - please hang on to my block, and feel free to put off making it!  We will be leaving here very soon.  When we get to Ohio I'll post that address and you can mail it whenever it is convenient.

I know all about remodels and things not being the right size.  Hope you are able to locate the doors you need SOON!!!  Hang in there - it will get done eventually.

Linda, thank you for the beautiful quilt block. . Had hoped to get Colleen, Kris and Mel's blocks  done this week  but has no happen. Have had a couple of problems with the remodeling project  - the shower doors for the 2 bathrooms were the wrong size. Spent hours on the computer trying to find one for the guest bathroom and finally decided to forget it and went with a double shower curtain rod.That tub/shower is only used a few times a year. Yesterday the contractor got ready to put the shower door on our bathroom shower  and it does not fit. So have spent most of today looking on line and tomorrow will go to Lowes and Home Depot and see what we can find.

Trudyann, I received your block today.  Thanks very pretty.

Linda, I also received your block.  Not sure if it was meant for mr or Ginny as it is a snail tail block.  If it is for Ginny, let me know and I will forward to her.
