ScrapHappy Saturday Red

Boy, can you believe this is the last Saturday of August?  And I can't say I've gotten much done in the red department.   It was a busy month.  Took a much needed vacation to see both daughters and the grandchildren.  The oldest one was suppose to come home with me (she's 20) but she had something to finish up after I left so she'll have to come at a later date.

Getting my red scrap box out was fun.  I think this is a wonderful idea because my scrap boxes get cleaned out and all the small stuff gets cut into squares and put in the appropriate size box of squares.  I use a similar storage system as Ann Weins from Sweetgrass Creative Designs so it's nice to get all the small squares put together.

Every square is a different material and I wasn't sure I'd have enough pieces.  There are some pieces that I've had since forever.....small flower prints from the 1980's,  It feels really good to us them and know they won't look too out of place with the other, more modern pieces.

ScrapHappy Saturday Red

Boy, am I slow this month.  It's been a very busy month all ready and had to squeeze time in to get my umbrella block done.

I have one red print that is as old as the hills.  See it to the right of the handle?  There's lots more of it yet.  Maybe if I keep using it some day it will be all gone.
