Thoughtful Thinking Thursday #99 ~ Reminded of Fishes and Loaves

Last Friday I mentioned I worked with scraps
and Saturday I showed a block made from those scraps.
Funny thing about those scraps.
 I sorted
 and matched, and sewed and trimmed
  and matched, and sewed and trimmed
 and matched, and sewed and trimmed
for about 90 minutes and turned out 6 twelve inch blocks
and still had this!
and this
after another 2 hours of matching, sewing and trimming and
when what to my wondering, blurry eyes appeared?
AND I still had this!↓
I thought about the fishes and the loaves written about in John 6: 1-14
 and retold several more times in the New Testament,
because when I finished I still collected 2 baskets of scraps!
I THINK my scraps were multiplying on the table before I could use them?
When they do get down to be so small that a quarter inch seam would eat them up,
they go to the "Doggy Bag" at the local quilt shop called Birdsong.
"THINK about it."

  1. Scraps are fantastic. As we use them, they provide new possibilities, almost indefinitely. Yours produced beautiful blocks. :-)


Have a JOYful day!
