3 Things I’m Enjoying This Week 4.22

Happy Earth Day Sunshines.  Are you thinking about your impact today?  I am reflecting on how my hobby can full consumerism and waste.  However, it does have to be with the right resources and knowledge.

Scrap Quilts

Saving your scrap fabric and using those scraps for an upcoming project can give new life to your fabric.  The key to scraps is storage.  There is no right or wrong way to store your scraps.  Find the method that works the best for you and encourages you to use scraps.

If you don’t want to keep your scraps, you can always sell them.  Lots of quilters shop #thegreatfabricdestash on Instagram.

I make a number of scrap quilts so I keep scraps organized by size so I can quickly make pulls and sort fabric choices.  If I’m ever stuck I check my Pinterest board for ideas.

Look for a number of new scrap quilts coming soon.

Spring Weather

It finally feels like spring in Indianapolis.  We did have freak snow on Monday, but I hope that is all past us know.  Time to spend as many hours as possible outside.

They are yelling at us from the top

Family Time

We spent time with our families this weekend and it was amazing.  It was a great reset after so long months at work and busy schedules that are coming our way.  Hello, baseball and soccer mom duty.

There was a game of Uno that lasted at least 45 minutes with no winner.  I got to thinking about the games I played as a kid.  Tetris, Uno, and Yahtzee were my main go-to games.  No wonder I’m a Project Manager.

In Tetris, you have to make everything fit especially as the game speeds up.  With Uno, you have to be focused on what’s happening in the game so you know how your play will impact the next person.  Yahtzee is all strategy on what’s your best bet for that hand.  Thanks Mom & Dad.

I’m looking forward to more family time with the nice weather and being outside.  It is the best reset button.
