I shouldn’t…

But it looks like I will. 

test klosjes

I’ve been watching many of you hand-stitching away on your Klosjes.  So awesome to see them growing into piles of blocks from little scraps.  I just love it!!  I had to try them out.  And they are fun.

“But Annette!  You are already busy working on a hand sewing project…

…so Klosjes are a no-no!” 

Hmmm…but then again, I’m overwhelmed with scraps.  I save them all, even tiny ones.  They are so pretty that I can’t bear to toss them.

I think I have more scraps than fabric, actually.  My ‘Stack 0 Scraps’ reaches almost to the ceiling.

Plus other smaller stashes here and there. Klosjes would be such a beautiful way to use and enjoy them.

So I guess I will succumb.

Those are cute! They remind me of spools of thread...

I'm sooooooo tempted. I think what's stopping me is I don't know where to find a pattern and I'm not clever enough to figure it out on my own. Hint, hint. *wink*

I love seeing all the very cute spools. A quilt I absolutely want to make...in the future. :o) Looking forward to following your progress.

That is a very pretty rainbow of scraps you have there! And all so neatly contained. Your spools are adorable and how could you resist making them!

Oh, you have jumped on the bandwagon. lol Lookin' good.
Even your scrap containers look good all sort by color. Mine are all thrown in a bag and I am getting ready to take them to my bee to share.

Suzie said...

Your scraps containers looks just perfect, what a great idea! Do succumb! Your Klosjes will turn out beautiful! Is there any better way to use up your scraps? I don't think so!

Your room is so nice and under control. It is ok to save those scraps if you can have a place for them. Your blocks are amazing. Love the yellow in the pic. Yellow makes me happy.
