Flowers and Scraps

Here are a few more flowers that DH brought in from the yard...



Pretty lilies - I love flowers.

And you all know that I love fabric too!  Look what came to live with me this week!

This is a MOUND of fabric "scraps". I was trying to be quick in taking these pictures, before Ozzie decided to come and make a  new bed!  Again...my idea of scraps seems to be different from everybody else - these are nice, big pieces!  This fun bag of scraps came from Brenda - who lives in Burlington, and frequents the Mt. Pleasant quilt shop - where she left me this big bag of goodies.  There are tons of Jo Morton fabrics in here and plenty of other good stuff too.  I made a bunch of new pieces of jewelry all from these fabrics - it's so much fun to have something different to work with (you know, because I have NOTHING in my stash!) - but it really is more fun to have something different.  Thanks so much, Brenda!!!  Love them all!

Have a great day!!
