Keeping Busy!

I saw this free pattern on Pinterest for this cute little mini-quilt.


I am always looking for fun ways to use up small scraps leftover from quilts!


This was a super quick little project!


I’m using it for display on the little low shelf under my kitchen island!


I also made a cover for my notebook/journal.

    I love this block, Polly. and the cover too.
    So cute. Why don't you live next door to me??????
    I am in No Va too (Loudoun) and today is windy and brrrr cold. The sun is great.
    Thanks for sharing your inspirtation

  5. Very nice block. What is the finished size? Tell Yogi that we in Michigan are still waiting for Spring too. At least the snow it gone. Yea.

  6. Amazing at all the fun things you can find on Pinterest.

  7. The little mini is so sweet and I love your Pinterest project.

  8. Your mini quilt and your journal cover are lovely. Spring hasn't arrived in Eastern Ontario yet, but I am hopeful. Sweet pic of Yogi!

  9. You've been busy, Polly. I love your little quilt and journal.

  10. Thanks for sharing this cute little tutorial! Love your mini quilt:-)

  11. Loving all your loving inspiration today ... I have already printed the mini patter and trying to decide what color - has to be Spingy of course. Your journal is so wonderful with you sweet Yogi and your guy's pictures.

    We had about five days of Spring, some with rain so could not play outside. There is a promise of more Spring next weekend, but we are not cleaning out the gardens until the cold leaves.

    Yogi is my substitute dog for now so I really enjoy all the pictures you post of him. His little face reminds me so much of my sweet Brady's loving face. DWH (DearWonderfulHusband )has not decided we are getting another dog. I just may have to take matters into my own hands as I really miss not having one to care for. Hugs to you and your sweet Yogi


Thank you sooooooo very much for taking the time to leave a comment! I am always happy to know that someone is reading my ramblings!! Polly :-)
