One Lady's Rubbish...

Does this look like rubbish to you? Take a closer look...

Look at these little ditsy flowers...

And will you check out this bird in a blossom tree. Is this not a perfect little picture? Albeit of the miniature 8x6cm variety.

And what about these reds? Yep, you've spotted Prints Charming in there.

And I know that this next one is a personal favourite for lots of you...

The point is that, while these tiny scraps of almost nothingness, despite their beauty, don't warrant saving for the majority of people, once the quilt is made, the bag is finished and all they are fit for is the garbage. For me this is pure treasure. After all I don't need much to make any of these.

So whilst those scraps were one lady's rubbish, they are pure gold to me. And whilst we are the subject...I know one lady who will think my garbage is rather sparkling too...

Thanks for your rubbish, Manda ;-)

It always amazes me what treasure gets thrown in the rubbish bin at my stitching class each week.
Needless to say, I have often brought home many lovely little "scraps" and have used them so happily in my sewing projects.
We are bower birds by nature I guess.

Oh what a treasure trove! I don't throw mine out... I'm sure there'll be a use for them someday ;) K

How cool, it's so true what they say about one person's rubbish being another's treasure!

I can never seem to throw out scrap fabric, either - suppose it's the scrapbooker in me. I love the cards you put together, especially the baby buggy set - so cute!

These cards are gorgeous! Clever you! I do the same with scraps of paper and lace, nothing gets wasted.
