Playing in the Kaffe scrap bin............

It was errand day yesterday so I wasn't home very much.  Last night I had to fondle some fabric so I started digging through the bin of Kaffe scraps for more journal cover ideas.



I know this looks like a black and white photo, but this is color, the color outside my kitchen window at night.  The bunny sets off the motion detector light and I set my camera for night photos.  I haven't wanted to walk through the snow to the backyard feeders so I have been throwing bird seed out the kitchen window.  In the daytime the squirrels and birds eat it and at night the bunnies come and clean up whatever is left.


My orange Christmas cactus has started to bloom.  It only has 5 buds but I'm happy to finally have one bloom for Christmas.



Don't forget to visit Stash Manicure today for my guest appearance.

So excited to see you share all your beautiful quilt tops and ideas today on Stash Manicure, Wanda - everybody needs to see what you can do with little pieces of fabric !

I did have to laugh at all the unquilted tops, lady. That is a LOT of tops hanging there.

Your tut for the book cover is wonderful and I think the best around

dear photo of the bunny

Great post on Stash Manicure!
I wish I had bunnies in my yard to clean up after the messy birds.

Laura said...

Great post over at Stash Manicure!

Love those Kaffe scraps. Now that I have a nice collection of Kaffe fabrics, I need to get going on a quilt so I can have Kaffe scraps to play with LOL.

I feed the birds here too, but the hawks have figured that out as well and have started showing up for their own breakfast. Yesterday morning one was waiting patiently on the wall just above the feeding area. Needless to say, the little birds did not get their food until later...

Glad the Cactus finally bloomed. Mine are still blooming. Lots of buds this year.

Char said...

Ops, I forgot I'm headed over to Stash Manicure.

Wanda, great post on Stash Manicure! You have a bright and cheery voice, I am going to start following your blog, too...

Thanks for the peek into your stash. Maybe I should come visit you and help you with your "lights" bin...I don't have enough of those! ;-)

Oh, btw, I counted the tops...there are 20 of them showing (I'm sure you didn't show us all of them!)

Love the scrappy strip tops, too, I keep fixin' to make myself one of those someday...

Sharon said...

I'm still wanting to do some journal covers, but right now the house is in turmoil with the quilt frame assembly. But I can so identify with the need to fondle fabric. That's how our daughter ended up with a new pillowcase last night. Had to be done. LOL!

LC said...

My comments went to Stash Manicure too, but I just have to say that our bunnies are snow white... and will be for a long time. After a blizzard yesterday, I think it is time to move back to Illinois!

SarahVee said...

love your bunny photo. Great post at Stash Manicure. Glad so many others can meet you there! I was a little surprised by all of your hanging tops - I thought you finished them as quickly as you made them:) I like how they are still yours!!! can I use that as my excuse to?!

Barbara Strobel Lardon said...

Love the post! Love your Kaffe box of leftovers! Love seeing your Christmas Cactus blooming.

I have to check my camera for a night setting, wonder if I have that? Funny how they turn out looking black and white. I have noticed taking winter pictures on a cloudy day can look that way too. It is the telltale blue sky that gives the clue to color!

Linda M said...

Wanda I'm glad so many more people got to meet you through Stash Manicure, great job! I like your very colorful and interesting Kaffe scrap box; I recognized some of the fabrics in your lights box as part of my stash. Nice catcus bloom, didn't you have a red one last year?
ps - today's word is "cargor"
