Side Tracked on FNSI...

In my previous post I showed you the pile of fabrics I was getting ready to use for FNSI with Wendy and friends but I got side tracked.....







As I was digging through my big plastic box of scraps I came across these...












Hmm! what to do with them ??












I know I'll find some wadding and something for a backing and












 Taa Dah ! A nice new runner to put next to the kettle and a little coaster to put my Double Decker Tea Caddy on..


Now back to my scraps.....Had fun making these....












Saw them on Lynda's blog post and thought what a great way to use my scraps.. Have more cut to put together tonight ...








Oh and I also managed to make some Blocks for Aussie Hero's in the afternoon...


It's 42 deg cel on our Patio sew it's nice to be inside with the Air Con blasting and I'll pop over HERE to see what others have made.. Thanks Wendy , love my sewing nights with all my virtual friends..
