In late December I was given a bag of scraps to use for donation quilts. I've made three and they will be going to our local Project Linus.
Then there was a rust and indigo partially finished piece that's been hanging around in the studio for way to long, so a few hours of work finished it up.

These have been fun and I hope they continue that way. Most days I have no preconceived notion of what I'm going to do, I just start playing with my box of scraps that I've gathered for this project. I think I'm enjoying it because I have no plans to ever do something with these, they don't have to be perfect or even close, it's just an exercise. This is not the way I normally see things, I usually feel like I have to have a plan of some sort to put everything together or to be able to sell or show what I make. This is very freeing.
I'll be linking up with "Off the Wall Friday" and "Slow Sunday Stitching".
