It's been raining a lot lately in Kuala Lumpur. The other day it rained for hours and hours straight. It was pouring at tea time, then at dinner time, it was raining when I went to bed, and was still raining when I woke up. I stayed in that morning, thanks to a bad cold (maybe thanks to all that rain?), and was definitely not in a creative frame (definitely thanks to all that rain). And so I was sitting there staring at a box of scraps, when the following happened.
Tipped out box:
Organised scraps into groups (according to size of scrap).
Applied ruler and rotary cutter:
(by-product of ruler and rotary cutter activity):
Divide product of ruler and rotary cutter activity into three piles of 4" squares, 3" squares and 2.5" squares:
And strips of various lengths:
(Existing pile of growing (and hairy) 4" squares which will someday (hopefully!) make a patchwork quilt):
Pat self on the back for job well done.
What a perfect rainy day activity :-)
