There has been a breakthrough! - (part of) the swearsewing room is clean!!
I decided that I needed to throw out the really small scrappy stuff that I'd been saving "just in case". Look how full the bin is getting.
As I went along tidying up, I found the perfect combination for the next softie. A beautiful fat quarter of multicouloured vintage dots and the left over bits from this bag.
...then I remembered the too tiny bit of scrap I'd thrown out.
That's right  - it is exactly right amount for the horns of the giraffe.
Now how will I ever manage to throw anything out when even the tiniest bit actually can be useful.
 Something tells me there will more hoarding and less clearing out going on now!

thanks for taking a peek over the fence...


  1. At least it was only a breahthrough and NOT a break in! Well done Quilary. I look forward to seeing the giraffe!

  2. Darn!! I am not very good at keeping my scraps. I usually throw them out! It's always a good excuse to go buy more fabric anyway!!

  3. That giraffe is so cute! I save all my scraps, no matter how small. I use them to make really tiny blocks - like 2 and a half inch ones. You can never have too many scraps. That's my motto. Yesterday a friend brought me two huge bags full of scraps and I thought I had died and gone to heaven!

  4. That giraffe is going to be just adorable!

  5. Oh dear, you sound just like me! I hesitate to throw out any scraps but if I don't they are going to swell up and burst out of my sewing room! blessings, marlene

  6. I am sorry, I found humor in that....I can't tell you how many times I have thrown things away and needed them after the fact....


Nice of you to take a peek over the fence. It's lovely to meet you. Do come in, have a cuppa and a chat. I will talk back...
