It’s a Scraptastic Tuesday!

I made progress on an old WIP I’ve not touched in a year- YEAH! My scrappy log cabin quilt needed 64 blocks to be completed and I had made 46 of them and stopped, packed up and moved country. So I’ve been making the remaining 18 in the evenings when Alex has been working. I […]

Selvedge Salvage
