The past month has beencaxtad more productive than ususal. Also centred around mindless stitching.
My first First scrappy project this month is a repair project. With random rain in summer the umbrella is getting a great workout. However this cherished piece a gift from the MOTH has a wooden handle. Which I heard go “crack” and spied the damage. Ok its approximately 10 years old, served me well and still has loads of life. Packing tape to the rescue. With this gorgeous print I call it my “Pari-sol” LOL
Now to the mindless time consuming scrap boxes. I set my ironing board at chair height and commenced. Watching TV, mindless ironing, then stitching, some trimming. It’s the scrap block time, or crumb quilting. A large tub to catch the mega chain piece.
Next, more clipping, ironing and stitching ax my crumb blocks grow.

do you know what you’re going to do with your crumbs? or still waiting for an idea to come to you?
I started a crazy patchwork years ago, its morphed into crumb free form, carefree. I purchased a 3 panel dressing screen frameyears ago, its still panel less. So thus will be bright, cheerful and so me. Crumb panels. And I did see a fabulous set of curtains in a craft room made of crumbs also.
Love to see the finished result of that scrappy chain!
Crumb piecing is quite relaxing, not much brain power required, which is perfect for me at present
Good catch on the brolly, that’s a beauty and definitely worth saving. And that mighty chain is going to turn into something interesting, I can tell.
The mighty chain, is growing. I have collected 3 archive boxes of scraps over the decades
Always lovely to see scraps getting a good workout. I wonder if you’ll be able to see a difference in the amount left over, though?
Hope the tape fix sticks! Our rain is usually accompanied by strong winds so I think more reinforcement would be needed here. Your scraps (crumbs?) are coming together nicely.
I added several layers, we do get strong wind gusts, it’s holding up so fare
Interesting umbrella. I have one, but I don’t go out much in the rain, so it doesn’t get a lot of use, other than rolling around on the floor of the car’s backseat. The scrappy blocks are looking interesting already. I never tried a catch basket.
Any old tub or in this case huge tupperware bin
