Happiness is Scrappiness

So, I didn't live up to what I had in mind about one month ago; to blog more often. 
One month has passed without me writing one single word, and I have missed a lot in blog land.  I have been busy with custom orders and new items for my Etsy shop and have not given priorities to other things. 

I haven't touched the granny square blocks I blogged about one month ago. They are still sitting on the sewing table, staring at me. 
In between Etsy and custom orders, I have played with my scraps. 

These are 1.5 inch squares (cut), 1 inch finished. I made 2 blocks the other night and now I have 31 blocks. Each block has 36 squares x 31 blocks = 1116 squares. This is not going to be a unique Postage Stamp Quilt, I'm using several squares of the same fabrics because I want to use up bits and pieces instead of tossing them away. 

I pulled out a bag with flannel the other day, I needed some for a Christmas gift I'm working on. Question to myself: 'what do I do with these flannels'? SCRAPPY! Of course! :) 

In the bag I found some already cut 2.5 inch squares and 2.5 x 4.5 inches rectangles. Can't remember what I had in mind when I cut them? The idea now is to make one quilt with squares and another one with rectangles. Let's see how that pans out! :) 
First of all I have to finish that Christmas gift!
