Combing thru my scraps

Three things to be happy about:
(1) the end of winter
(2) the beginning of spring
(3) that curious time in between

Today's the second day of spring and we're expecting snow flurries!  The weatherman said it's snowing at the Vice President's residence; I looked outside of my residence and there's nary a flake - curious!

Recently I was gifted a humongous amount of scraps from Deb in my guild (hi Deb!!) and I'm in my element!  You know my two rules about scraps:  (1) the more you use, the more you have (2) other people's scraps are more interesting than my own!

I was going through the bags and finding a lot that will go beautifully in crumb blocks, and a lot that I put into my GO pile - look at these great Alexander Henry prints:
Beautiful elephants!

These have possibilities...
lots o' blocks for a future project!

And look at this strata, what a find!

See what I mean?

And look what I found for my little solids play - who knew!!
There's gold in them thar scraps! 

So much scrappy goodness - you know what I'll be doing today!

Sew forth and sew on til later
