My good friend, Joyce, set out to develop a project at church to make play clothes for an orphanage (as usual volunteered my services). We had people who donated fabric for this project. Going through all that was donated, we discovered a lot of pieces which were not useable because of size. Her comment was "we will just have to get rid of this sack - not big enough". I was very nice and said I would take care of it.

YES!! Look what I got out of it. Started cutting it up into strips and was inspired to probably make Bonnie Hunter's Carolina Crossroads. These neutrals with pink and green. Not my favorite colors but as the saying goes "When life gives you scraps - make QUILTS" Will have to dig into my stash for additional pieces of fabrics and maybe into my DSIL stash as well (always a good source).

We hope to have these play clothes finished in the next couple of weeks and shipped off to an orphanage in Mexico. Slow go, because we haven't been able to recruit very many people who sew.

Off to Kerrville, TX to visit youngest daughter and family. It is GS B'day and he will be getting the Bluework quilt that was posted earlier. I also just went and picked up a free standing basketball goal for him (assembly required). The box takes up the whole back of the van with all seats stored.
Have a great weekend!
