My February Scrap Attack goal was to cut up my green stash into useable pieces. This was a much bigger goal than I had set last month which was to cut up the blue stash, and I didn't have a lot of time to do it. This is what it looked like before.
As with my blue stash a lot of the pieces actually looked like this .....
..... so they definitely needed some attention. Not loving attention. I didn't really have time for that. Just your every day run of the mill attention. It seems like cutting was all I did last month. You can see in the first photo a lot of the fabrics in the back row were really those between-green-and-blue shades . When there were only a few days left in the month I tried to convince myself I didn't need to bother with them because they weren't really greens. I couldn't do it, though. I had to do what I had to do.
These are the squares, strips, and bricks I ended up with.
This is what is left of my green stash. (And those between-green-and-blue shades.)
At one point I had actually become so tired of cutting that I pulled out a few greens and made some pillowcases. No. That is not cheating. That is stash-busting.
It's time to pull a slip from my handy dandy Christmas gift bag of goals. I'm really hesitant. The last two were not fun, and I don't know if I can handle cutting up any more scraps. Okay. Here goes.
Whew! I am so relieved. I get to make something out of the Tom and Jerry scraps. My grandsons used to love watching Tom and Jerry cartoons. I think the DVDs we bought were just about worn out when they outgrew them. I had bought Tom and Jerry fabric to make pajamas for them, and even cut them out as you can see, but I never got around to making them. It looks like maybe they were about 1 year old and 6 years old at the time. Maybe 2 and 7. So, they outgrew the PJs as well as the DVDs. (I hate to admit this, but they are 12 and 17 now.)
I should be able to make a baby quilt or two from this. Hopefully, this month will go a little more smoothly. Fingers crossed!
