Scraptastic Tuesday - the August Link is open

It's the second Tuesday of August, and the Scraptastic Tuesday monthly link is open.

Usually I share my own scrappy project first but I have nothing to share. It has been a month of outside stuff, painting walls inside my house, watching movies, having extra naps and other summer stuff in addition to still working at my day job.

But I have been knitting a lot - it is more portable. I have finished these handwarmers and once they are blocked I will post properly about them here. In fact, I will start posting here regularly again, I miss being in this space and I miss my sewing room. I have several ideas and before that a quilt or two that need to be finished by months end.

Nicky, my Scraptastic Tuesday partner over at Mrs. Sew and Sow, has started a new scrappy sampler that she has designed and is sharing with us. I'm going to sew along with her, you might want to check it out too.

So, now is the part where you share your scrappy projects, plans and ideas. First, our fantastic sponsors:

A huge thank you to our generous sponsors for providing the following prizes which will be awarded randomly among those of you who link up.

Please join Nicky from Mrs. Sew and Sow and I by linking up a blog post or flickr or instagram photo sharing a scrappy project, in progress or finished, or your thoughts on dealing with your scrap mountain:
  • You don't have to have joined us before, everyone is welcome.
  • One link per person, and it will be your entry into the random draw for the prizes. It is the same link up here and at Nicky's blog - Mrs. Sew and Sow - so you only need to link up on one of our blogs.
  • This link is to share with our community about using your scraps, please don't use it to advertise your own products or events.
  • You can link up from your blog, instagram or flickr, but you have to link up to be entered in the prize draw.
  • Please visit at least a few of the links, they are very inspiring, and leave comments too as everyone loves to connect. 
  • Use the Scraptastic Tuesday button and invite your friends to join us too. Please share our button, or a link or the hashtag #scraptastictuesday in your linked post or photo. 
  • The link is open until next Monday night at 10:00 pm MST. We will announce the winners next Tuesday. 
  • If you have trouble linking up, let me or Nicky know and we will get you sorted.

I was scrapalicous this past weekend and put together a scrappy quilt top. Thank you for hosting - your linkup fits in perfectly with my thrifted fabric finds!

Sounds like you've been super busy! I'm all for taking a nap now and then! Thanks for hosting the scrappy link party!

Not much sewing in the last week but lots of buying of fabric on the MN Quilt Shop Hop. My husband and I are traveling the entire state visiting 72 shops and am posting about our adventures. And getting lots of ideas for future projects. Thanks for hosting. Your handwarmer looks great! I should try knitting. Karen

Thanks for hosting, Leanne. Hopefully you won't need those hand warmers too soon. We are a little on the cool/wet side here in west central Saskatchewan.
