Chain Piecing Chaos

Please do not for a second think I have already left Chaos behind as a UFO.  I am still diligently sorting through my scraps, trying to match like-sized pieces in piles.  That way I can just grab a pile and chain piece them all together.  Well, today I hit the bottom of the pile.  That's right.

And here is the result of my chain piecing marathon:


My other half came in to see what the insanity was all about.  He thought it would look good hanging from the awning of my pop up shop.  Not to self: must make bunting.


There it is.  Tonight will be spent cutting them apart, ironing and matching them up in piles...again.  Even with the scrap overload, Chaos makes my heart flutter.  That's a good sign....

Looks like the beginning of a morris dancers costume! But will make great chaos when put together!

Yes do make some bunting - with little sheep on them!

Lovely! I have never ever had a cupboard as clean as yours!

I love to have my chaos! That reminds me to go back to mine and solve problem number one: what to do, when the backing is half the size it should be ...

Sometimes preparation takes more time than we think but it's a necessary task if we want to achieve anything!
