What was I thinking ... and the winner is ... and Happy Christmas everyone

What kind of a foolish fool was I?  I so didn't want someone to just chuck the gorgeous Sherbet Pips scraps into their scrap bin that I made you all tell me what you would do with them.  Which is fine but, as if I've got nothing better to do on Christmas Eve, I am sitting here, reading and re-reading all the wonderful ideas and trying to choose a favourite and I have too many favourites so this was not a good plan.  In future, let Mr Random Number Generator do the hard work.

But one idea did strike me as particularly clever and it's an idea I haven't seen done before and I always love seeing new ideas.  And not only that, but the winner provided a second idea which did make me do a big snorty laugh out loud when I read it.  And so the winner of my Christmas Eve smallest giveaway ever is the person who said:

Let's see....

Choice A: take a 5" square and raw appliqué it to a white background. Then use the triangles and raw appliqué those around the square, forming a wonky star. After a few of those, use the rectangular strips as raw appliqué sashing. Essentially, you are making a wonky star without wasting any of the fabric in a seam!


Choice B: Cover all the scraps in modge podge and stick them to my naked body then parade around work as if i'm not bothered by the stares of confounded coworkers or the drooling of quilty coworkers following close behind.


I know, tough decision. I'll have to make a pros/cons list and see how it all pans out.

So, if that's you, email me with your postal address and these precious little scraps will be winging their way to you.

I'm off to chop up veg, boil ham, wrap the last few presents and try to fathom whether the turkey is going to defrost in time.  The kids have just very sweetly volunteered to put the chocolate decorations on the tree - funny that they weren't interested in putting on the other decorations.  We're going to go out for a walk in the snow this afternoon and pretend we're in a Christmas film.  Ding dong merrily on high to all of you.

  6. GAh! too funny! I say no pictures, that would be positively pornographic and have you seen the size of her tail lights? I don't know that scraps are gonna give it the coverage she needs. Just sayin'.

    Moreover, given the post, 'Ho' 'Ho' 'Ho' might be the most appropriate holiday greeting for that one.

    LOL! Thanks Lynne & I look forward to receiving your scraps!!

  9. Lol Lynne we all knew you'd have a headache choosing! But the right one certainly was the one you chose. Well done Duff, raw edge applique is the absolute right way to go, but only once you've peeled them off after option B. :) I'm looking forward to the photos too. :)
