Can I bore you with yet more FW blocks?

Here's the whole she-bang for the year:

FW blocks
My apologies ... I was too lazy to move the lamp.

And the most current batch:


#67 Pine Tree


#68 Postage Stamp


#69 Practical Orchard
 

#71 Puss in the Corner


#72 Railroad
 That's it for now.  I noticed with my cut & pasting that my numbering system is a bit off, but I don't have my book with me so I'll have to correct this later.

Other than sewing a few blocks this past weekend, I undertook a major cleaning of my sewing area (ahem, bedroom/sewing room).

Where the magic happens!
I cleared out literally an entire kitchen-sized garbage bag of tiny scraps!  There was no way I was ever going to sew with these snippets and it felt great to let it all go.  The green wastebasket (in front of the armoire) is what remains of my scraps... all good sized pieces, and the plastic box next too it is overfowing with larger yardages I'll probably never use.  I'm going to try to gift to friends and/or the day camp my daughter attends. 

If all else fails, I'll try to giveaway here, but this is not trendy stuff ... mainly older, out of fashion fabrics and some blenders my well-meaning husband gave me that I'll probably never use.

You can bore me with more FW blocks any time you like Claudia! They are looking fantastic. I absolutely LOVE the Pine Tree from you latest batch!
