Oh my goodness!

Three things to be happy about:
(1) gifts from afar
(2) great exhibits
(3) being thought of

I was thought of by my neighbor, as he sunned himself (I guess) in St. Thomas last week - yesterday he presented me with a delicious world famous Tortuga Caribbean rum cake!

The size is just big enough, because this cake is so unbelievably moist and rich, rich, rich!

Just so you know, it's "officially recognized as the #1 souvenir of the Caribbean..."

My other goodness was a scrappy-licious bag of scraps from my friend Robin...

Just look at all the possibilities!

Some really big chunks in there...

These can be cut down into any number of sizes and shapes!

I can use these as the corner squares for my lozenge leader-ender project...

Quilt seeds!

Shall I add these blocks to my "parts department?"

 A long pieced one... I wonder how Robin used the piece this was left over from?

These five inch squares can be cut into 3-1/2" squares for my x and plus project.

The stack I recently cut is slowly dwindling as I kit up the pieces and parts!

Can you tell I'm feeling scrap-happy??  Thanks Robin!  I just love me some scraps, especially if they are gifted to me!

I needed these two happy gifts because I'm still having issues with my PC - it reboots without warning.  Time to take it back to the Geek Squad and see if they can find out what's going on.  This is so annoying, I bought this PC in January 2014, just enough time for the warranty to run out!

That's it for now, have a great Friday... sew forth and sew on til later...


  1. you are so welcome. I can probably have more in about a month. They are everywhere! I think I have scraps from the first quilt I ever made:0).

  2. I, too, loves me some scraps! What a wonderful feeling when you open a baggie or bag or box and all that scrappiness comes out! Love it! And like you I also play the "what were they doing with this?", "what's this leftover from?" game. In the quilting world I don't think there is anything that comes close to the fun of gifted scraps. Enjoy!!
