All Caught Up With Scrapitude

I can't believe I actually managed to catch up - our house has been in such shambles with all this renovating going on.  But, I took last week off from work, and:

  • Conducted an archeology dig in the freezer, excavating many pounds of ice and discovering some interesting artifacts (which were quickly thrown away before they could thaw out;
  • Chose some new lights (which was quite traumatic - turns out brass is no longer in style!);
  • Painted two rooms - only about 10 more to go; and
  • Managed to do some sewing!!

Step 3 in the Scrapitude Mystery Quilt involved sewing half square triangles to sets of quarter square triangles - 128 of them.  We were to cut the half square triangles from 4 7/8 inch squares.  I had about a million charm squares from a series of swaps a few years ago, so I used those.  That meant I had to trim them down to size when I was done - but who am I kidding - I would have had to trim them in any case!

Here are about half of the finished pieces.  I understand that this is the last "mystery" step and that we should be getting instructions to put it together next week.  I'm quite excited to see how this turns out!
