You may remember a previous post about crumb piecing. Well, I quite enjoy doing this at times (not all the time as it can be very fiddly indeed) but with perseverence my crumb pieced item is starting to slowly take shape. I have no idea yet what it is going to end up as but for the moment I am trying to fit in various types of scrap blocks and get it to balance out and then I will decide whether it will be a throw, tablecloth or whatever. It is a slow work in progress but very satisfying to use up lots of scraps which would be otherwise thrown away.

I haven't taken part in any swaps this year due to health issues but as the festive season approaches I have relented and joined the one over at Button Floozies. I have to make 3 Christmas ornamentsto hang or be displayed on a shelf, containing buttons but can use other items also. I have 3 swap partners already in the UK and must get these made by 28th November. I have finished one and nearly completed the second. Can't show you anything yet as we cannot post until all swap members have received their ornaments. So busy, busy, busy.
