the Purge


I haven't really showed you my ironing board in all its glory. It can hold 100 squares (5cm). I don't have such space on my sewing table so my friend with staple gun helped me out. It is portable and quite handy. As I experimented with squares lately I want to cut some more (scraps) and turn them into quilt. 


But first I need to sort my drawers. There are bigger pieces, smaller ones. Some not so pretty and some I already forgot about. There are also some that has to go. All this fits right with the Purge. Yes, what a great idea to purge together!

It is going slow but better small progress than none. There are some great ideas how use those unloved fabrics. Check out the links others have submitted. 

What else is going on? Jumping. Lots of jumping :-)

  1. Your tomatoes look great! I'll be picking eggplant and tomatoes from my garden to make dinner this evening... as long as the ground squirrel hasn't beat me to the eggplant! I know what you mean about coming across a fabric that you have forgotten about. I think it is almost like an interesting archaeological dig to figure out who I was all those years ago when I bought *that* fabric! :)

  3. Awwwwwwwwwwww the girls are having a great time with the trampoline - I love it! Your tomatoes are coming along great - ours - not so much, lol! We've been having problems with squirrels and bunnies nibbling things - we had to build a mesh cage around the berry plants and that's helping, but the squirrels in particular are making a mess digging in the garden. And something is eating my tiger lily bulbs ... from underground!

  8. I've been sorting and purging, as well. Thanks for the link I'll have to check it out. I also enjoyed the photos of "jumping". Seeing them have such a wonderful time, brings out my inner child.
