Wish we had Smell a Blog





my Jasmine is flowering and smells sooo good, I have kept it contained in a pot so it doesn't take over the fence between us and the back neighbors but I'm tempted to let it when it looks and smells so yummy at this time of the year.
Not a lot of crafting happened this week, I did start another scrapping page, but am at the stage where I don't know what to do next so while waiting for inspiration to hit me I used some paper scraps up and made these cards, 
can see I have a long way to go before anybody receives a home made card from me, lol, I will keep practicing.
It's a bit like patchwork being able to use up the scraps, and I have finally run out of blue n red scraps for my string quilt so  even though it will just end up being a floor rug for the Grandchildren or the back seat of the car it is a good feeling finally using up the scraps I have been hoarding for all these years.

I have to put the blocks away now till in the New Year when I will add some sashing to finish them. Meanwhile I need to get busy with some Christmas sewing.

Smell a Blog would be so good - especially when we are going into winter and you are into spring. I love your string quilt.
