Scrappy Diamonds

I was out and about for most of the day, but did finally settle into making scrappy diamonds. And this time I had a new helper...Buddy. He has decided that he likes to settle into the pile of strips by the sewing machine. Sometimes he helps me pick strips, sometimes he likes to rest his head on my hands, and other times his tail plays cat and mouse with the needle.

I am also trying to be diligent and contain each project to protect them from too much help.  I discovered Buddy has been taking the labels off the Dear Jane blocks and running around the house with them. Okay, to be fair, he only started running to get away from a crazy woman.

Molly had shredded some of the triangle foundations for the spiderweb quilt, so I put them away in a safe place. Unfortunately, it is so safe, I don't know where they are. I look forward to finding them again some day and working on it.

  1. I have to keep my projects in sight or I lose them too. But I don't have any helpers :)

    Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap! Love those scrappy diamonds.

  2. Aw, scrappy diamonds...
    And me sitting here with an empty project bin.

  3. My favorite story from my childhood is when my sister told Mom, "But if I clean my room I won't be able to find anything!"

  4. Love your string stars!! I made three quilts for my children using large ones that were made by my husband's great-grandmother. Lots of fun!

  5. I have lots of those "so safe I can't find them" spots. My kids will have a field day when I die and they have to clean up!!! The ultimate revenge for their teen years...
