I had a Friday group sew, and, I didn't have a project ready, so, I grabbed a scrap bag and my stripology ruler, and, I started cutting. I always have questions from others about my scrappy cutting and using. It seems a mystery to them. How do I store? how do I use? how do I make all those different colors go together? etc. One of my best quilting buddies saves scraps, too, but, in squares, not strips. I would prefer strips, and, I would be happy to cut them into squares when I need them. Otherwise, I am the happy recipient of scraps from those who don't want to figure all that out. Most of my guild is new fabric and matchy matchy quilters. I am too frugal - thanks to my Dad.

I started the background for my friendsheep rug. I drew some clouds and I decided on green grass under the sheep. I had a small piece of this Spring green wool that I could use. I dyed some wool for the blue sky and did not like it, so I will have to try again.
