We've Been Busy with Company!

I haven't been on much in ages except to read other blogs from time to time.  My sweet Granddaughter celebrated her 3rd birthday this past week.  My Dad was here from Seattle on his way to catch a cruise from Miami to Barcelona, Spain.  Since the only place to put company at our house is the sewing room (which use to be our guest room) we had to move out my cutting table and the scrap bins.  I keep my scraps in the following types of bins. 

I put my scraps in the big fabric box on the bottom right and my grand kids sort the scraps into the bins.  We had to put labels on the bins since there isn't a bin color for every color of scrap.  They love to do this and get upset if I do their 'job'.  Right now they are disappointed it has been put away and they are not too happy that they can't sort.  Now that our company has left we should be able to put everything back where it belongs.


There is a great giveaway over at Stray Stiches it is Linda's 200th post Giveaway Celebration.  I love visiting Linda's blog because she always has wonderful information you can learn.  She has a Photo Fact of The Day today's is The First Telephone.  So, get right over there and learn about the First Telephone and sign up for Linda's 200th Post Giveaway Celebration.  Also, she has the most beautiful quilt blocks and links to other giveaways.  Enjoy!

Have a pieceful day!
